heliboarding in austria
 
Can anyone help?
I was planning on taking my husband on a heliboarding trip for his birthday in January but we are going to Mayrhofen and I have heard that it is not available there- is this true?
And if so, where is it possible to go heliboarding in Austria?
:D

I don't know about heli boarding in Austria. I do know they have killer resort accessed backcountry. You can hire a guide to take you on the same type of stuff that a helicopter would, for much less. If your husband and yourself are willing to do a little sweat equity and hike, you could probably be guided to a pretty sweet mountain hut or two. Along with several memorable descents. Seems like a good portion of those huts are basically hotels in the mountains. You may not even need to bring a sleeping bag. Food, drink, and such served at each.

As far as ive been able to find, it seems its only possible to heli ski/board in the arlberg region of austria..

The area of Arlberg are awesome and the surroundings very beautiful.
