Heli-Skiing & Cat-Skiing

A handful of heli-skiing operators work out of the small Golden Airport, flying skiers and snowboarders into a massive area of high peaks, glaciers and bowls.
Their commitment, as one operator puts it, is to share "the best run of our lives" day after day. For clients, this means adventure, excitement, legendary powder and fresh tracks - not only fresh after a new snowfall, but sometimes descending never-before-skiied slopes.
