Escape the big city for snow-capped peaks in Vermont, the premier snow destination in the Eastern USA. Travelers save precious time by taking a 90-minute helicopter flight instead of a 4-5-hour drive from Manhattan to Stratton, one of Vermont’s best ski resorts.
Those on a tight schedule can now enjoy all that Vermont has to offer within the same day. Leave early in the morning, ski or ride the mountain for 4-5 hours and be back home in time for dinner! Helicopters can fit up to 5 passengers depending on option selected and passenger weight. Skis and snowboards can be safely carried in an exterior cargo basket upon request (with 5-passenger helicopters only) – a unique feature only available with the operator of this experience.
Helicopters at Stratton use the on-mountain landing zone during daylight hours for the utmost convenience of travelers (subject to resort approval and weather conditions).
