Heli-Skiing in Manali

Helicopters drop the keen skiers onto peaks as high as 6,500 meters. The peaks reduce the wind speed at lower levels where one skis, resulting in consistent, light and powdery snow. Powder skiing has become easier to learn with the new thick kind of skis.

On the slopes are septuagenarians keeping pace with teen agers the skiers moving in the groups of three with a guide. The group's size eliminates pressure on less-experienced skiers and allows the veterans to ski to their heart's content. Safety is ensured by certified guides, experienced helicopter pilots, easy availability of medical facilities  and emergency backup arrangements with the Indian Air Force.

All the heli skiing packages include 100,000 ft. of vertical skiing six-day guide service and use of an avalanche transceiver, seven night lodging in Manali plus all meals, escorted air and ground transfer Delhi-Manali-Delhi, airport transfers and local taxes.

South of Kullu, 50 km away in Bhuntar, is an airport with regular flights to Delhi and Chandigarh. Taxis are available from Bhuntar to Manali. If more adventurous, the drive from Delhi to Manali takes 16 hours.
