CELEBRATING 45 YEARS OF PREMIER HELICOPTER SKIING OPERATIONS

In 1973 Wasatch Powderbird Guides began operating helicopter skiing in the Wasatch Mountains of North America. Over our first 30 years of operations, Powderbird developed one of the most trusted names in the helicopter skiing industry. Looking to create new opportunities for our clients, in 2002 our team formed Powderbird International and set off to Greenland for our first exploratory helicopter skiing expeditions. Upon our team's arrival, we discovered a land with near infinite skiing possibilities and set about building an operation there that met the professional standards that Powderbird had become know for.

Today our pursuit for world-class adventures and unmatched customer care continues, as our team strengthens it’s partnerships with leading companies in the ski, marine and aviation industries.

SAFETY AND SECURITY IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY

Our guides have decades of experience with helicopter skiing operations.  We are trained avalanche professionals and skilled in emergency first aide and mountain search and rescue techniques.  

Our guests are issued an avalanche airbag, a beacon, radio, and a shovel and probe.  We provide orientations on how to use this equipment, on procedures around the helicopter, and procedures for skiing in the backcountry.   

Two guides work together at all times while in the backcountry, with no more than 4 clients per 1 guide.  The guides and pilot will work together closely to manage the inherent risks associated with helicopter skiing.  Air Greenland provides the helicopter and pilots for all our ski operations in Greenland.  They are a very professional organization that is dedicated to safety.    

Together we develop a rescue plan specifically for your trip. So we are prepared to respond in the event an accident were to occur.
