Aspen Heli-skiing

Our Vail and Aspen heli-skiing trips are perfect for those looking to experience the thrill of a lifetime without changing your vacation destination or plans. We are Colorado’s only full-service helicopter skiing company.

We will arrange a private, fixed-wing charter from either the Aspen (Pitkin County) or Vail (Eagle County) airport directly into the Telluride Regional Airport. You’ll arrive in time for us to pick you up and take you to our office for a safety briefing and helicopter orientation before your day of heli-skiing. From there, you will head directly into the field for a full day of heli-skiing or boarding. A day with Helitrax includes six runs of heli-skiing which equates to 10,000 to 14,000 vertical feet of skiing and riding. At the end of your heli-ski day, we’ll get you back to the airport to board your fixed-wing flight back to Aspen or Vail.

We have access to over 200 square miles of terrain in the San Juan Mountains. We ski and snowboard in high alpine basins and cirques while enjoying fresh, untracked snow. Almost all of our terrain is above tree line which makes for picture-perfect views and vistas. Even though you are staying in Aspen or Vail, you are still able to experience a day of helicopter skiing or snowboarding and all the perks that come with it.

Helitrax can assist with heli-ski charters from other ski towns in Colorado with regional airports. Helicopter flights are also available to and from the luxury hot springs accommodations at Dunton.

We can accommodate single-day heli-skiing from Aspen and Vail, full custom tours, guided backcountry skiing, scenic helicopter flights, and more. If you have questions on how it all works, feel free to reach out to our office at 970.728.8377.
