GREENLAND HELI SKIING
Greenland Heli Skiing is located on the Eastern Coast of Greenland in the Assmassalik region. This is a unique and beautiful place for a heli ski adventure. Eastern Greenland is still considered one of the most remote and spectacular places to heli ski on the world. The mountain ranges are surrounded by fjords and the Greenland Icecap. Many of the ski runs begin at the top of the mountains and end next to the ocean. April and May is the prime heli skiing season in Greenland because the snowpack is deep and stable and the long days give you plently of time to explore the expansive heli ski terrian of Eastern Greenland.
Heli Skiing in Greenland allows access to the increbile terrian in a dramatic landscape. There are steep chutes and couloirs as well as gentle open glaciers. There is a wide range of terrian to satisfy any skier (except for tree skiing, remember you are in the Arctic!). Though few of the mountains are higher than 2,000 meters these mountains rise directly out of the ocean. Making for unbelievable views and long ski runs. The average heli ski run in Greenland is around 1,000 meters. There is still new terrian to be discovered and first descents to be had while heli skiing in Greenland.
April through mid May is the best time to go Heli Skiing in Greenland due to the deeper snow on the glaciers and more stable snow on the steeper peaks. The long Arctic spring days provide more an oppurtunity to ski when the condtions are best. There is nothing quite like spending the day skiing in perfect corn conditions deep in the Arctic.
There are four guests and one guide per group with usually two groups sharing one helicopter. The maximum amount of guests per week is sixteen with two helicopters. The Greenland heli skiing program utilizes the Astar B3 helicopter, a very safe helicopter and also one of the best helicopters in the world for heli skiing.
