A helicopter allows a skier or a snowboarder to reach stunning heights and spectacular slopes that are difficult to access otherwise. The flight itself is a great adventure. The views are breathtaking and unforgettable. This kind of winter activity has become a popular thrill-seeking adventure. It attracts more and more skiers and snowboarders every year though it's best suited to experienced riders. Heliskiing is only practiced in select places, carefully chosen by professional and highly skilled guides to minimize the risks. This allows skiers/snowboarders to enjoy the natural environment and the infinite joy of heliskiing with a feeling of safety.
This sport is very dependent on the weather. Flights can be provided only in good weather conditions. Heliskiing in Austria is limited to only a couple of landing sites. It is available in the Arlberg region, near Zurs and Lech. The target slopes are the Mehlsack (8,701 ft or 2,652 m) or the Schneetäli (8,038 ft or 2,450 m). The approximately one hour ride ends in the romantic valley Zug near Lech.
