Whisper Ridge, the heli-skiing outfit in Utah, has just started taking bookings for their new Heli-Mountain Biking program, the first of its kind in the continental US. Their helicopter assisted mountain biking will have multiple pickup zones allowing you to continue lapping the epic downhill. If you’d prefer to get some pedaling in, you can also ride back to the helipad for a more enduro style of riding, and all at a tiny fraction of the average cost.

Thank you to everyone for all of the incredible stoke on our new Heli-Mountain Biking program! We’re going live with booking and offering a limited discount package available here: This offer introduces our new Summer Heli Passport. With this limited offer, you can buy now for as low as $166, then reserve your Summer ’19 seats at a later date when you know the time is right for your schedule.

It all starts with the Limber Pine Trail:

  • Fresh, tacky, flowy-loam, old growth forest…
  • Cool high-country, shady aspects…
  • Limited to 60 Guests per day…
  • All private access.

Limber Pine Trail is roughly 5.5 miles long with 2,300’ of downhill, with an optional 8 miles and 1,200’ of gain to pedal out. You can either go for one heli drop and pedal back to the yurt at the top of the Powder Mountain MTB trail system or spin multiple top to bottom downhill laps with heli bumps, then either pedal or heli out. They are also in the process of building another trail that will offer a full 3k vert downhill. The Limber Pine trail is pretty moderate but it has offshoots that offer more technical options and a few features.

There’s nothing better than high alpine singletrack. Go and get in the heli and enjoy as much riding as you can handle!
