Utah Heli-Skiing: Park City & Snowbird

Powderbird is Utah’s premier heli-skiing and snowboarding operation

Today we operate out of two base facilities: one near Historic Park City and the other 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 choose the most accessible location to start your perfect day. Our locations allow you to make the most of your ski vacation by offering numerous accommodations and plenty of ski resorts to access during storm days.

Access utah's largest ski terrain playground

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. The public and private land we are exclusively permitted to operate on adds up to 170,000+ skiable acres! All of our ski terrain is blessed with different micro-climates that often deliver 600+ inches of world famous Utah powder. 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.

Unparalleled accessibility

Legendary heli-skiing is closer than you think

Powderbird bases are nestled in the beautiful Wasatch Mountain Range surrounded by an abundance of world class ski resorts. Remarkably, these locations are a mere 45 minutes from the newly remodeled Salt Lake International Airport where direct flights from London, Los Angeles, Paris and New York arrive everyday. With Salt Lake nearby, a day gliding through powder in the mountains can easily be capped off with fine dining or an NBA game in the valley!
