Sun Valley Heli Ski

Steeped in tradition, Sun Valley Heli Ski pioneered American helicopter skiing, setting the standard for nearly five decades. The Sun Valley region is home to some of the most undiscovered back-country skiing in the lower 48 states. The Pioneer, Boulder, Smoky and Sawtooth Mountain ranges hide incredible couloirs, vast open bowls, and world-class tree skiing that appeal to nearly every skier. This vast territory covering three mountain ranges provides unparalleled access to Idaho's legendary powder and terrain for all abilities. Drift through endless tree runs, or take in the grand vistas of our high alpine terrain as you cruise open bowls. This is "small-group" skiing, giving Sun Valley Heli Ski the ability to cater to each groups' ability levels and desires.
