Utah Heli-Skiing: Park City & Snowbird

Powderbird is Utah’s premier heli-skiing and snowboarding operation.

Set in the heart of the Wasatch Mountains, Powderbird accesses nearly 80,000+ 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.

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 guests 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 Historic Park City and the other 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 Snowbird Helipad

Home to the world-famous Alta Ski Area and Snowbird Ski Resort, Little Cottonwood Canyon is the perfect location for heli-skiing. The Powderbird Snowbird Helipad 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 Wasatch mountains and the sprawling canyon below.

Our facility creates a fun and intimate atmosphere to re-live and re-tell the adventures of the day. When not heli-skiing, guests can ski or snowboard some of the best lift accessible terrain in the world at Alta and Snowbird.

Guests joining us for a day of heli-skiing enjoy a complimentary tailored breakfast, lunch, and drinks daily. Our heliport location also has a full retail store where Smith Goggles, Hestra Gloves, The North Face clothing and other gear from our sponsors are available for purchase. Ski rentals from K2 Skis are available for guests who would like to rent powder skis.

Individual Seating

$1,260 - $1,540.00 per person +tax

Looking to experience Utah’s best skiing? Powderbird’s Individual Seating package allows you to purchase any combination of seats aboard our helicopters.

How does it work? Come as you are and we’ll partner you with others according to ski ability and weight in order to optimize your day in the backcountry. Whether you’re interested in classic advanced-intermediate runs or aggressive slopes, our guides will assess the snowpack and conditions to pick the appropriate runs for you and the group.

Private Group

$6,900 -$13,800 per group +tax

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.

Reserve Now

Private Charter Helicopter

Staring at $18,000 per group +tax

One helicopter, one guide team & endless possibilities.

For our guests looking for the pinnacle in customized heli-skiing, filming or other projects, Powderbird offers exclusive access to Utah’s backcountry wonderland.

Private Helicopter Charters include a dedicated helicopter reserved for preferred skiing, larger groups, and special projects.
