Colorado’s San Juan Mountains are truly some of the best mountains to experience heli-skiing. Our terrain is breathtaking and the heli flight is just as spectacular as the untracked skiing and riding. We do most of our adventuring above tree line where the snow is light, and the views are endless. If helicopter skiing or snowboarding is on your bucket list, we make it easy to check off this thrilling adventure. If you are a heli-skiing regular, you will love exploring our backyard.

Telluride Helitrax is based out of the Peaks Resort and Spa in Telluride, Colorado, but provides helicopter skiing for guests and residents of mountain towns across Colorado. Our regional program provides charters for Vail and Aspen heli-skiing. Telluride is easily accessible by direct flights into both Telluride and Montrose, by flight charter, or by car. We hope to ski with you this winter!
