About Wilderness Heliski

Wilderness Heliskiing operates in the shadow of Aoraki/Mt Cook, and the great peaks of the Southern Alps. Professionally guided by Alpine Guides (Aoraki) Ltd, we have sole rights of access to Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park. Nobody else gets you into the big mountains!Wild and Remote
And we don't mean our guides

The Aoraki/Mount Cook region is an area of huge and heavily glaciated peaks, located at the heart of the Southern Alps. Our heliskiing terrain covers more than 800 square kilometres, and we now have over 200 named runs - discovering more every winter. You could well be making turns on runs that had never been tracked before...
High Alpine

Our terrain is high alpine - we leave the tree line thousands of feet below. This is a world of snow, rock, and ice. We get new snow from every winter storm and extensive glaciation increases the range of run options, the variety of terrain and quality of the runs available.

All abilities thru expert
We've got runs for all levels of heliski/heliboarding ability. Wilderness also has more terrain for expert riders and skiers than in the hills down around Queenstown and Wanaka. But there's no need to worry about getting out of your depth ›

The Mount Cook Region
We heliski amongst the Liebig, Malte Brun and Mt Cook ranges, running just east and parallel to the great peaks of the Main Divide itself - Aoraki/Mount Cook and Mount Tasman - being the most famous.

This region contains 29 peaks over 3000 metres and is characterised by extensive glaciation. Aoraki/Mount Cook rises to a height of 3,754 metres - rising 3 kilometres above the valley floor.

The Southern Alps has a maritime snowpack. Expect variation in snow conditions and cover throughout the season. Powder is more common earlier in the season, with spring snow from late August.
