About Us

Southern Lakes Heliski has been delivering excellent heliski experiences since 1985.  Locally owned and operated we employ passionate guides with the right qualifications and extensive international and local knowledge of the mountains.

We have partnered with Alpine Helicopters who have been around since 1972 and are renown for their excellent safety record and impeccably maintained helicopters.

Based out of shops in Queenstown and Wanaka we have terrain extending over 11 mountain ranges and boosting an excess of 600 runs, which means we have the most heliski terrain in the Southern Lakes Region. Having so much terrain gives us the advantage of always finding the best snow.

We are the only heliski company with our own luxury lodge. Minaret Station Alpine Lodge is situated in world-class heliski terrain where guests can come and experience the beautiful Southern Alps while enjoying exceptional hospitality and comfort.

Southern Lakes Heliski offers a variety of options from a one-day heliskiexperience, multi day heliski options and inclusive weekly packages providing something for everyone from intermediate to advanced.

Our company is made up of people who love what they do and our aim is to give every guest a truly memorable experience
