Small Group Heli-Skiing
Small group heli skiing is unlike any other type of skiing. It will magnify your entire wilderness experience in the mountains and change your life forever.
Every day at Snowwater, three groups of four guests are matched up and privately guided through 150,000 acres of engaging and magnificent terrain. Essentially that equates to volumes of deep powder, choice, juicy lines and no competition for fresh tracks!
With only 4 clients per guide, we can easily tailor to specific ability levels and ambitions, maximize terrain use, and foster an intimate, relaxed atmosphere in the big mountains, which increases confidence and individual skill levels.
Another important factor of small group heli skiing is the added communication between guide and guests in the field. Not only does it allow greater flexibility to explore interesting and unique terrain features, it improves the level of safety in the backcountry.
Our sleek, high performance helicopter is a powerful mountain helicopter ideally suited for small group heli skiing. A B2 A-Star Eurocopter, it embodies advanced technology equipment and provides comfortable, quiet cabin room for a guide, four guests and a pilot. A sleek and agile machine, the B2 offers many advantages over large, big group helicopters. Able to fly faster, it adapts and maneuvers easily in big mountains, while safely accessing terrain that heftier helicopters cannot, such as small ridge features and openings. Increased cabin area also permits greater passenger visibility.
With only twelve guests a day at our operation, snowcat backup is available for the entire group at a time. If bad weather prevents flying, our luxurious Ipod- equipped snowcat whisks all guests to steep, deep, world-class glading close to home, so you ski every single day of your ski vacation.
Snowwater guests often foster new friendships, both with each other and with staff, and enjoy a more personalized service in this small group, intimate atmosphere. Groups of twelve regularly book the entire lodge and thus have a truly private adventure. Either way, small group heli skiing is the way of the future.
