Set in the heart of the expansive Wasatch and Uinta Mountains, Powderbird is the only outfitter in Utah permitted to helicopter ski on United States Forest Service land. We operate on the largest commercially permitted area in Utah, this area is larger than all of Utah's ski resorts combined. Our ski terrain is blessed with over 500+ inches of the world famous Utah powder each winter. This low density snow blankets a variety of alpine bowls, tight chutes and wide open glades drawing deep powder enthusiasts from all over the world.
Experience Utah's best skiing with Powderbird's all inclusive multi-day helicopter skiing package and lodging at Snowbird's Cliff Lodge. This flexible, convenient option makes it easy to plan your helicopter skiing vacation.
We operate out of our heliport at the base of Snowbird in Little Cottonwood Canyon. Our helicopters are conveniently perched adjacent to four world-class ski resorts: Snowbird, Alta, Deer Valley and Park City, so that you can make the most of your ski vacation.
Lake effect storms bring us our coveted Utah powder. Even when the big flakes are falling and helicopters aren’t flying, Powderbird guests are delivered the goods through our exciting weather day programs. These include two Snowcat skiing operations and exclusive side door Tram and Lift access at Snowbird with our guides at Powderbird.
