Bronze Charter Wanaka

Alpine Helicopter heads down the mountain to pick up the next heli ski group in Minarets near Makarora


The Bronze private charter heliskiing or heliboard day is the ultimate in personalised heliskiing and snowboarding. Suited to small groups of up to 5 people, private charters give you extended freedom and unrestricted terrain access. Charters are geared to suit your specific needs, abilities, expectations and budget.
The Bronze package gives you 1.5 hrs of heli time, and it is common on the Bronze Private Charter to achieve 10 to 12 runs in a day. Heli time is “collective up” time, this means when the helicopter is on the ground with the engine running you are not paying. Only when the helicopter lifts off does the clock start.


  • Off peak, 1st June – 6th Aug $7995 for up to 5 people in the helicopter,
  • Peak, 7th August – 8th Sept $8995 for up to 5 people
  • Off peak, 9th Sept – 5th Oct $7995 for up to 5 people
  • Extra heli-time on top of the 1.5hrs is calculated on $1500 per 30 minutes

Wanaka is the relaxed sister to Queenstown. Surrounded by incredible scenery, boutique shopping and excellent restaurants and bars, it’s worth a visit. With multiple adventure activities and two ski fields, Cardrona and Treble Cone, all within 45mins of the township you’ll always be entertained.

Our terrain on the Wanaka side is excellent and is often used for film shoots due to the stunning beauty of the Southern Alps. It caters for all levels from Intermediate to Expert and is a mixture of big open bowls, steep chutes, rock drops and open space. Wanaka houses the famous Minaret station which is a favourite for anyone who heli skis there.

Price includes transfers, heli lifts, guide, safety equipment & briefing and gourmet lunch in the mountains.

All you need to bring is yourself,  powder skis or boarding equipment, sunscreen, a camera and a great attitude.
