I’ve always been a mad-keen skier and used to ski competitively when I was younger. In my early 30s I tried heli skiing – and that’s it, I was hooked.

In 1996 I cut loose from my City job and set up James Orr Heliski. We started by sending skiers to Canada, the birthplace of Heliskiing. Over time we’ve added new locations and you can now enjoy first-class powder skiing in exotic destinations like Japan and Alaska. We’ll be happy to tailor a trip to your specifications almost anywhere in the snowy world.

They know we offer an unparalleled powder ski experience, fantastic locations and seamless organisation from first enquiry to returning home.

Delivering quality for you

To ensure that you enjoy the highest quality off piste ski holiday, we’ve forged excellent relationships with our partners on the ground. Your comfort is paramount and we’re rigorous about safety so we’ve personally visited and vetted every destination we offer.

We’ve been delivering exceptional off piste ski holidays, including heli skiing, cat skiing and cat and heli boarding, for nearly 20 years. But the only relevance of all that experience is the difference it makes to you.
