Wasatch PowderbirdTM Guides was born in 1973 when a few ski professionals began taking adventurous travelers on heli-ski trips to the backcountry of Utah's majestic mountains. Focusing on fun, adventure and skill-instruction, our excursions soon gained renown among powderhounds hungry for the addictive thrill of skiing unblemished expanses of "the greatest snow on Earth."
Today, we're headquartered in a state-of-the-art heliport at Snowbird Ski and Mountain Resort, located in Little Cottonwood Canyon just 29 miles from Salt Lake City International Airport.
At Snowbird, you will experience amazing views of Little Cottonwood Canyon from our state of the art heli-port. A continental breakfast will be served to start the day and after helicopter skiing you will return to the heli-port for an après-ski lunch. Our facility creates a fun and intimate atmosphere to relive and retell the adventures of the day. Outside of helicopter skiing, guests can ski or snowboard some of the best lift accessible terrain in the world at Alta and Snowbird.
We also operate out of The Canyons Resort in beautiful Park City, UT. You will start the day with VIP Valet Parking at the Sundial Lodge. From there you will proceed to our clubhouse located in the resort village between Sundial Lodge and One Sweet Ride. We offer a continental breakfast so you can start your day out well nourished. At the end of your heli-ski adventure, you will celebrate the day with an après-ski lunch catered by one of the exceptional restaurants in the village. At The Canyons, you will have a wide range of high-end lodging, dining, spa facilities, and nightlife to choose from.
Our quest for powder has also inspired us to explore terrain far beyond Utah. Join us on heli-ski excursions in Greenland, Argentina, Chile, Turkey, Japan—and just about anywhere that spectacular peaks are begging to be carved. You'll enjoy the best heli-skiing in the world plus the finest regional cuisine, luxury accommodations, and indigenous cultures.
