Private Group Helicopter Skiing

Skiing in a private group is comparable to skiing with your own private instructor, you choose who you ski and ride with to create the perfect heli-skiing day. Private Groups are assigned their own team of guides and generally get more flights and ski runs per day than in our Individual Seating package.

The guides have greater flexibility in tailoring the day to your group’s requirements without the limitations of skiing with someone from outside your party. This allows you to experience the beauty of Utah’s backcountry on more flexible terms.

Private Group skiing is ideal for advanced groups who wish to ski more runs at a faster pace, desire more private attention and skill instruction in the backcountry, or are simply looking for a little more privacy.
