Heliski in Greenland
Heliski areas are concentrated in the mountains around Tasiilaq on the east coast of Greenland. During the year this area gets much more snow than the west coast; average temperatures are also much lower here, what positively affects the quality of snow. During the whole winter the bay is frozen, what also affects the microclimate of the region.
East coast is famous for its beautiful landscape. Local villages have much longer history than Maniitsoq (those on the other coast). Here you can try dogsledding, kayaking, admire the icebergs and fjords and, of course, heliski! Flights to the heliski zones are short, as the area, where you`ll be residing is surrounded by mountains.
Departure point is Tasiilaq, from where you head either to the Ammassalik fjord or to the icecap on the west. So, you have a chance to ski in different conditions and see beautiful landscape of Greenland.
The altitude of take-offs is comparatively low, but vertical drop is quite imposing, because you come down to the 0 altitude – right to the ocean coastline. The runs are on average between 1000 and 1500 meters, depending on weather and the area. The main advantage of heliskiing on the east coast is that many times you are the first person ever coming down this way!
We use A-star B3 helicopters, which have inflatable life rafts. The helicopter is provided by the Greenland Air company, which delivers it from the base on the west coast. The pilots are experienced professionals, working on heliski programs for many years.
