Mehlsack and Schneeta For those who treasure off-piste terrain and lighter-than-air powder, heli-skiing is the ultimate adventure. The once-in-a-lifetime sport allows skiers and snowboarders to fly above the Alps and drop onto untouched slopes before snaking down pristine mountainside. Austria boasts two of the best heli-skiing areas, both of which sit in the Arlberg region. Mehlsack (the Flour Sack) draws experienced skiers with the promise of deep powder, while Schneeta (Snow Valley) is geared more toward intermediates with lengthy runs and granular snow.
