Diamond Peaks Heli Ski
operates out of the top (yes, the top!)
parking lot at Powder Mountain Ski Resort which is East of Ogden, Utah -
less than 2 hours drive from SLC.
From there, you fly over the ridge North of the ski area to some
Private Land they have exclusive access to. They drop you off on top of
the ridge, you ski down to the lower Landing Zone (LZ), and then the
chopper takes you back up. The pilot Mario Nichols, introduced himself as
"I'll be your lift operator today"
, shuttles between multiple
groups with the wait at the bottom usually just a few minutes.
A special thanks to Craig (who runs Diamond Peaks)
and his son Casey who was our guide for a great day of skiing two feet
of fresh powder under sunny skies with no wind!
