Utah Heli-Skiing and Snowboarding.

Utah is where we started way back in 1973.

Set in the heart of the Wasatch Mountains, Powderbird accesses nearly 100,000+ acres of skiable terrain with a micro-climate that delivers as much as 600 inches of world famous Utah powder. It is a powder skiing mecca that draws people from all over the world. We build each days’ itinerary by choosing from thousands of acres of terrain throughout this great mountain range; from the steep and tight to the wide-wide open.

Salt Lake City Airport and Utah Ski Resort proximity.

Utah is famous for its abundance of snow and its many world-class ski resorts. Powderbird helicopter skiing is the only Heli-Skiing operation in the world that is within 45 minutes of a major international airport hub, the Salt Lake City International Airport. Our clients can conveniently travel from Salt Lake City and be at either of our locations in less than an hour.

Today we operate out of two base facilities, one in Park City, and one at the base of Snowbird in Little Cottonwood Canyon. Our helicopters, are conveniently perched adjacent to four world-class ski resorts: Alta, Snowbird, 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 down days.

Powderbird Little Cottonwood Canyon Heliport

Home to the world-famous Alta and Snowbird Ski Resorts, Powderbird’s Little Cottonwood Canyon headquarters is conveniently located slope-side for easy ski-in-ski-out access. The main floor and patio offer an exciting and inspiring view of the helipad and sprawling canyon below.
