There is currently only one operator offering heliskiing in the Himalaya — Himachal Heliskiing, run by Everest veteran Roddy Mackenzie. Mackenzie believes that due to the high altitude of even the lower slopes, the Himalaya offer the best skiing on the planet.
One of the best places for heliskiing is where the granite intrusions of the Garwhal meet the schists of the Dhaula Dhar fault. Among a great profusion of jagged spires lie steep and narrow glaciers that provide some of the most spectacular ski and snowboard runs in the world. To the west of the Garwhal/Dhaula Dhar fault the terrain opens to a more gentle landscape with enormous gradual slopes dropping out of sight in distant valleys, over 3000m below.
