We are in the business of providing incredible alpine experiences, but we also know that we’re in the business of helping our guests create some of the best memories of their lives and we don’t take that lightly. We put our blood, sweat, and tears into creating customized helicopter skiing trips that cater to your inner ski-soul so you can have the best ski or snowboard day ever.

The trip styles we offer our guests are vast and include everything from a single day of heli-skiing that includes 6 runs totaling an approximate 10,000 to 14,000 feet to full custom experiences. Every alpine adventure we host includes everything you need - from powder skis and poles, safety orientation, and airbag pack/food/water, to avalanche protocol briefings, transceivers, and après ski. We hope you can join us!

Nestled within the heart of the stunning San Juan Mountains in Telluride, Colorado, Telluride Helitrax is fortunate to call over 200 square miles of immaculate and untracked alpine terrain home. We hold an exclusive US Forest Service Special Use Permit in an area that houses some of the highest elevations in the entirety of North America. Every day we ride and ski off summits, in basins and among cirques of Colorado’s premiere ski terrain. We have over 100 drop-off points that accommodate different skill-levels, and feature different types of terrain to keep your experience fresh and exciting.

We fly the Eurocopter S350 B3e high-altitude performance helicopter, renowned globally for its comfort and reliability. This capable helicopter helps us take our guests to high-altitude locations and drop-off points with speed, safety, and style in mind.

We also feature semi-private tours for groups of two or more, ensuring that your group rides and flies together. This is an excellent opportunity for those who value a more tailored pace geared at taking in all the sights and sounds of the San Juan Mountain Range. Our custom packages are entirely exclusive and totally private - you tell us what you would like to experience, assemble a group, and we take the time and care to find you the best terrain and snow conditions to meet your expectations. Pricing is based on flight hours when the chopper is in the air, so you benefit from customizing your own schedule.

For those who prefer to earn their turns and want the authentic mountain experience, our heli-assisted ski tours allow you to navigate the San Juan backcountry your way, accompanied by a Helitrax Guide who knows the area like the back of their hand. This is the perfect trip for experienced and equipped backcountry tourers looking to get deeper into the backcountry and ski seldom visited terrain.

Our regional trip options have connected Telluride with Aspen, Vail, Steamboat and Denver for over 20 years. Let us handle the arrangements for a fixed-wing charter from Aspen, Vail, Steamboat or Denver, and enjoy the scenic flight to our neck of the woods where you’ll enjoy all that the San Juan’s have to offer. After a full day of helicopter skiing, you will be back to your host location by happy hour. We can also provide flights to and from the luxury hot spring accommodations at Dunton. For those who prefer to stay warm and in the air, we also offer breathtaking fifteen minute scenic helicopter flights for four to five passengers. We take off from either the Peaks Resort or the Telluride Airport and return to that same location.

We may be great at providing unparalleled heli-skiing opportunities, but we’re even better at helping you create incredible mountain memories. Contact us today to find out more about availability, booking, and how to customize your own alpine adventure.


Telluride Helitrax has been conducting aerial avalanche control since 1982. State and County Highways and Roads Departments, Private Property, Mining Operations, International Speed Skiing Championships, Ski Areas and many others have contracted with us for avalanche mitigation. We have the expertise, experience, licensing and equipment required for whatever type of avalanche control is needed.
