The Powder and the Glory

Powderbird offers private and small group helicopter skiing opportunities in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, the coastal ranges of Greenland, and to other exotic locations worldwide.

We welcomes individuals, small groups and private groups who wish to experience the thrill of heli skiing on Utah’s phenomenal powder, otherwise known as “the greatest snow on Earth”.

From Utah to Greenland and Beyond

Wasatch PowderbirdTM Guides was born in 1973 when a few ski professionals began taking adventurous travelers on heli-ski trips to the backcountry of Utah’s majestic mountains. Focusing on fun, adventure and skill-instruction, our excursions soon gained renown among powderhounds hungry for the addictive thrill of skiing unblemished expanses of “the greatest snow on Earth.” 



Today, we’re headquartered in a state-of-the-art heliport at Snowbird Ski and Mountain Resort, located in Little Cottonwood Canyon just 29 miles from Salt Lake City International Airport. 


At Snowbird, you will experience amazing views of Little Cottonwood Canyon from our state of the art heli-port. A continental breakfast will be served to start the day and after helicopter skiing you will return to the heli-port for an après-ski lunch. Our facility creates a fun and intimate atmosphere to relive and retell the adventures of the day. Outside of helicopter skiing, guests can ski or snowboard some of the best lift accessible terrain in the world at Alta and Snowbird.

We also offer all of our adventures out of Canyons Resort in beautiful Park City, UT. You will start the day with VIP Valet Parking at the Sundial Lodge. From there you will proceed to our Clubhouse located in the Canyon Resort Village. Before we take off for the backcountry relax and join us for a quick breakfast including fresh fruit, bagels, pastries, yogurt, and various other items. At the end of your heli-ski adventure, we will celebrate the day with an après-ski lunch provided by one of the Canyons Resorts exceptional restaurants.

When you’re not helicopter skiing you can experience the fantastic skiing at Canyons Resort; Utah’s largest ski area. For après ski you’ll have a wide range of high-end lodging, dining, spa facilities and nightlife to choose from.

Our quest for powder has also inspired us to explore terrain far beyond Utah. Join us on heli-ski excursions in Greenland, Argentina, Chile, Turkey, Japan—and just about anywhere that spectacular peaks are begging to be carved. You’ll enjoy the best heli-skiing in the world plus the finest regional cuisine, luxury accommodations, and indigenous cultures.

    Everything is first class, including the fantastic breakfast and après’ ski food. They take care of all the details in a very professional manner, yet very personable. Heli-skiing is the ultimate experience, although Park City Powder Cats provides an experience that equals. Convenience and easy access, makes Powderbird very accessible, despite the cost. Check this off your bucket list!

    This group was top notch. I traveled with them back in 2002 and what an amazing trip it was. Take all the pictures you want because it is impossible to capture the true beauty of your day.
