In 1983, Australian climber Roddy Mackenzie was caught by an early winter storm while climbing a peak near Manali. He was amazed at the amount of snow that fell. With a little investigation it became obvious that if the right ingredients were put together, the Manali area could be the best heli-skiing terrain on earth.
After years of survey work, and with the generous help of the state government, HHA brought the first civilian helicopter all the way from Switzerland to the Valley of the Gods. The skiing was superb, and it still is. Since then, our company has grown to be a state-of-the-art heli-skiing operation catering to any level of skiing ability. Our guests come from all over the world to experience the wonders of the Himalaya. No one leaves unimpressed. No comparison with ranges outside Asia can convey the natural grandeur of the mountains in our skiing area. Speaking from personal experience, Roddy says that from certain places in our operating area the view is as grand as that from the summit of Mt. Everest. However, as our guest, you can save yourself a long walk (and a fair bit of nervous energy)!
