Heliski tour operator James Orr Heliski has launched what is perhaps the most expensive ski holiday ever, starting at well over $1-million. In an exclusive linkup with SuperYachtsMonaco, this once-in-a-lifetime (unless you can drop this sort of money every week?!) heliski trip to Greenland sees you stay on a luxury superyacht that’s specially adapted to Arctic conditions.
The yacht, the MV Cloudbreak, can sleep up to 12 guests in 6 bedrooms and a crew of 22 are onboard to care for your every need, including a spa manager, physiotherapist, and yoga instructor. With a helipad, a maximum speed of 15 knots and a range of 8,500 nautical miles, it’s the ultimate base for a remote heliskiing adventure for those with money to burn.
Company founder James Orr said: “This really is the ultimate experience for the wealthy adventure seekers out there. Heliskiing has a reputation for being expensive, and despite the fact we have heliskiing holidays costing around £2,000 per person, this one is on the other end of the scale completely.
Greenland is a spectacular place to ski and the remoteness means that it’s possible to drop onto unclimbed mountains and make first descents. The ship itself is like a cross between the most advanced military hardware on the sea and a luxury 5* hotel, it really is completely unique.”
Skiers fly directly from the ship accompanied by mountain guides and get dropped throughout the day on some of the most inaccessible mountains in the world, after which they return to the yacht to relax in the Christian Liaigre designed interior and dine on gourmet meals and fine wine.
The whole experience costs in excess of £$1-million for one week. Split between the guests, this works out at over $100,000 per person. Who’s in?
