Starting from altitudes higher than ski lifts could reach, heli-ski enthusiasts jump by helicopter onto steep mountain slopes. It is a demanding skiing that requires, in addition to physical fitness, exceptional skiing skills.

After the skiers descend to their destination, helicopters transport them back to the top of the mountain for a new descent.
