Hey Newschoolers! Long time forum leech, first time contributor ;)
I'm finally looking at breaking out of my chilly yet comfortable skiing comfort zone and trying something a little more...out there? I've been reading up on Heliskiing recently and it sounds like My Kind Of Thing and the perfect next step as I'm starting to tire (just a touch!) of the regular same old runs year-in, year-out.
I know, I'm awful!
I'm currently looking for any reccs on operators within New Zealand. Any favourite experiences? Best locations? Go-to providers? I currently have my eye on http://heliskinz.com/ but I'm open to any other suggestions from the NZ skiing community. Particularly given it'll be quite the cash investment to get geared up, let alone the cost of packages etc.
Having said that, I also welcome any general heliski advice from the more experienced here. Is there anything specific I should be adding to my gear for the transition over to skiing's aerial cousin?
Thanks in advance!
