Heli Guides Course
For the first time in the Southern Hemisphere, Alpine Heliski offers the Heliski Guides Course. Endless peaks with deep powder bowls, glaciers, and steep chutes, combined with challenging weather and avalanche conditions, make New Zealand’s rugged Southern Alps the ultimate training ground. Over a period of 15 days your professional instructors will teach you all aspects of heliski guiding and provide you with a strong base to further your opportunities with heliski operations, cat skiing operations or as backcountry ski guides. Guides trained in NZ have a reputation internationally as highly skilled professionals. Many New Zealand-trained guides hold key positions in heliski operations around the world, including Canada, Russia, Greenland, and the Himalayas. Here at Alpine Heliski, we are always looking for talented guides. Trainee guides that excel on the course will be offered positions during the season.
