Heli-skiing in the Ski Arlberg region

Ski Arlberg is known for its huge amounts of deep snow. It is one of the most appealing back-country regions in the world. 200 kilometres of deep snow slopes await you. In the Arlberg, the heart of Alpine skiing, you can experience the ultimate in skiing: heli-skiing and heli-boarding.

With state-approved skiing instructors and mountain guides and the helicopters, experienced and highly skilled skiers head to the Mehlsack, while good skiers head to the Orgelscharte in the Schneetäli. Both mountains are superb in midwinter when the snow is powdery, but they are also very enjoyable in the spring, when the powder has become névé snow. Heli-skiing can only be reserved through the ski schools, and is only allowed with state approved skiing instructors and mountain guides. It is available from Monday to Friday, weather permitting.

Heli-skiing in Arlberg – a dream becomes true

Imagine the following: untouched slopes of deep snow, mountains as far as the eye can see, and butterflies in your stomach. Early in the morning, in the ice cold air, your state-approved skiing instructor will tell you how to get in and out of a helicopter safely. A little while later you will be landing, it will be much louder than you had expected, and the snow will be flying everywhere due to the rotor blades. You will then get on board and take off. The Arlberg will gradually get smaller and smaller, the snow will glisten, and the horizon will appear never ending. You will finally land on the Mehlsack at an altitude of 2,652 metres, you will get out and the helicopter will fly away. Silence. The skis that you hired out especially at the sports shop and ski hire shop at the Steffisalp Sport Hotel are anchored firmly to your feet and only now do you feel the butterflies in your stomach again. Does it get any better than this? Just wait until you get going in the deep, powder snow!
