Heli-skiing

Off-piste challenges

Zürs and Lech belong to some few places in the Alps, where heliskiing is still possible.

A helicopter flight over snowy mountains is already an unforgetable experience. As a starting point for a unique freeriding experience it is fantastic.

There are two landmarks: the "Mehlsack" summit, which is ideal for experienced skiers. The "Schneetäli-Orgelscharte" is recommended for skiers with medium ability - especially attractive in the spring when there is firn.

Heliskiing packages are offered for up to four persons, incl. ski guides. They can be booked directly through the ski school in Zürs.

Mehlsack

FOR EXPERIENCED AND EXPERT SKIERS

The Mehlsack (flour sack) on the Zug Schafberg offers superb skiing for deep powder enthusiasts and in the spring also for firn fans. The most popular route that leading to “Älpele”. From the bottom of the valley, Zug is about a 20-minute walk along a well-maintained path (a local bus service runs from Zug to Lech, or alternatively the Zug lift system also takes you to the ski area). An alternative run down to Spullersee lake on the many sunny slopes is a revered and beautiful firn run, particularly in late spring. 

Heli-skiing Information & Prices

Flights go from the Kriegerhorn (above Lech) and the Flexen Pass (above Zürs). These sites were chosen to avoid noise pollution down in the resort and promote the coexistence of piste skiing and heli-skiing.

Flights are reserved via the ski schools. For safety reasons, heli-skiing is only possible when accompanied by experienced ski and mountain guides from the ski school. Flights are from Monday to Friday ONLY (not on the weekend and not on public holidays) in suitable conditions.
