Heli Skiing in the Himalayas for the brave at hearts


This isn’t for the faint-hearted. Someone who’s been through both the thrills of a helicopter tour of New York and skiing down the Alps will know what we’re talking about. For those who haven’t yet, we suggest heli-skiing in the Himalayas, at places like Hanuman Tibba, Rohtang Pass, Deo Tibba or Chanderkhani Pass, near Manali. You are transported by helicopter to otherwise inaccessible snow-draped peaks, and you ski down a 14,000-feet-high slope to the distant whirr of rotor blades, the sky and snow, and nothing else. With some of the best slopes, largely inaccessible otherwise, heli-skiing is catching up in India. The best season is December to February.
