4. Russia – Kamchatka
5. Japan – Hokkaido
This ski destination combines cold smoke, skiing in Japan and it is considered one of the most charming ski spots in the world. The northern island of Hokkaido receives up to 60 feet of snow annually, and during the winter Siberian storms bring a good quantity of snow. Heli skiing will give you the opportunity to ski on inactive volcanoes and through perfectly spaced birch trees in powder so deep that a snorkel would come in handy. Niseko has become a great ski destination where you can also choose to relax in the hot springs.
6. Switzerland – Zermatt
Heli-skiing in Europe is a slightly different game, depending on how the snow conditions are. Ski lovers enjoy the big descents amid alpine giants admiring the majestic Matterhorn views. Air Zermatt lifts passengers above the roofs of the picturesque old town for a quick buzz of the Matterhorn before settling the skids near the summit of western Europe’s second highest mountain, the Monte Rosa (15,200 feet). Surrounded by other 13,000-foot giants such as the Lyskamm and Breithorn, the vast Gorner Glacier stretches out below 8,200 feet of slopes — via a pit stop at the glimmering aluminum Monte Rosa hut at 9,458 feet. Other favorite drops are on the Alphubel, the Aeschhorn in the shadow of the mighty Weisshorn or the Testa Grigia on the border with Italy. Or the chopper can be used as an aerial elevator up the big slogs of the famous Haute Route from Zermatt-Chamonix, saving legs for the many stunning descents.
