Idaho’s winter vacation idea that draws the serious skier and snowboarder to Teton Springs Resort is the heli skiing
In this particular operation, the chopper literally picks up passengers just steps from the guest rooms. It could easily be argued that this heli operation offers the most convenient way for guests to access the powder snow conditions so readily available in the Yellowstone-Teton region. For years, Teton Springs has partnered with one of the most prestigious heli ski operators in the country, High Mountain Heli Skiing. This Wyoming based company, who first fired up their engines in the 1970’s, led the charge in heli skiing in the United States when this sport was in it infancy, and High Mountain Heli continues to draw visitors from around the world. Depending on weather conditions, guests can typically expect 6 runs totaling approximately 12,000 to 15,000 vertical feet. The latest in powder skis are available for rent.
The immense popularity of heli skiing today can undoubtedly be attributed to High Mountain and their unblemished reputation. It’s fortunate that High Mountain has recently moved their operation to Teton Springs Resort, now two of Idaho’s star performers. Heli skiing in the Tetons belongs on every skier and snowboarder’s bucket list.
