Freeride day at La Thuile

We had a fantastic day with Alesandro in La Thuile. It had not snowed much for over 3 weeks, so he recommended that we go Ski Touring, and we managed to find fresh tracks. Could not have gone better!

Heliski-day Courmayeur Mont Blanc (2 flights)

Heliskiing in Courmayeur is just amazing. The sceneries were stunning, the snow was perfect, we were along in the middle of nowhere. Organisation was impeccable, with Ode taking care of us right from the beginning. We did not wait at all and helicopter picked us up immediately for the first ride. Alessandro the pilot was super kind and helpful. We did two drops on two neighboring glaciers, 5 minutes helicopter ride. Only thing is that the downhill could have been longer, but that is due to the fact that wind conditions were extreme and hence only limited choice of dropping areas. I highly recommend this trip!
