Heli-Skiing in Annapurna

Heli-Skiing in Annapurna

Posted Jul 12th, 2010 under Company News, Special Events,

Fishtail Air’s AS350B3 ‘Equiriel’ helicopter flew some French clients to the snowy slopes of Annapurna for some exciting skiing adventure.
In Heli-skiing instead of ski-lifts or hiking , skiers use a helicopter to access an off-trail for downhill skiing. Instead of lugging heavy ski gear and hiking up the rough terrain,  skiiers can now access the snowy Himalayan slopes via a helicopter.  The Himalayan mountains in Nepal offer some of the best terrain, snow and ski conditions, with the added bonus of a spectacular scenary.

Posted below are some pictures taken during the heli-skiing adventure in the Annapurna on April 2010.
