Probably one of the most indulgent things you can do in life is use helicopters to get around. They’re dream machines capable of cutting out travel time and getting you to locations that aren’t humanly possible. They are also a photographers dream, assisting us in unique angles, effortlessly. Bit higher please, bit lower please…can we land on that patch of snow kind sir? The possibilities are endless.
Today I was fortunate to go Heli Skiing just out of Queenstown in The Remarkables with 3 pro boarder/skiers and a fearless 14 year old kid who wagged school to come with us. It’s a great concept, fly in the mountains, find something that remotely looks rideable…throw the crew out and shoot them carving down the slopes. 1st tracks every time. No signs of other humans, ok maybe just Bear Grylls…but it’s really something you should put on your bucket list.Even though we didn’t get head high powder, it’s still amazing just being up there.
If you’d like to fly over the ditch and see what I’m talking about, Air New Zealand are running a special sale, that ends today – $150 off airfares to NZ. Click Here
