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.
