Private Heli Skiing

Tentatively, heli ski bookings will open in May. If you are interested in joining a heli ski trip, please contact us here with your preferred dates, and we will add you to the waiting list. Once rates are confirmed, we will send you an email.

Did you take weeks to hand-select the group of skiers and snowboards for your trip to Japan? Or maybe you just want to go at your own pace for the day? Whatever the reason we are happy to offer private heli skiing at Shiribetsu-Dake which ensures our smallest client to guide ratios and runs set at your pace.

Terrain

The heli skiing zone on Shiribetsu-Dake reaches up to 1,107 meters. The terrain is a mix of trees, steep chutes, and open glades. Slopes range from 20-40 degrees (a typical resort black run is 32º). Average runs are 650 meters long meaning you can expect to get a lot of vert in just a short amount of time. As with any heli ski terrain, the number of runs/day depends on the weather, avalanche conditions, and the group’s ability level.
