Heli-boarding is using a helicopter as a way to hard-to-reach or inaccessible locations in order to go snowboarding. One of the biggest thrills in snowboarding comes from trying out new slopes with fresh challenges. Unfortunately, trying to find somewhere different from what youêve seen before can involve strenuous and time-consuming hikes to reach. Helicopters offer the chance to go just about anywhere, saving a very tiring process when trying to find somewhere quieter than the standard resorts. The helicopter also ensures a higher degree of safety and offers the chance to hop back on and go straight back up..
