FAQs: Heliskiing and Catskiing in Val di Susa

What should I know about Heliskiing and Catskiing Val di Susa?

Running from east to west in between the the Graian Alps in the north and the Cottian Alps in the south, Val di Susa is one of the longest valleys in all of Italy and as a result, boasts plenty of great catskiing and heliskiing opportunities.

Among the most popular spots to head in the valley is Sestriere. Heliskiers will generally fly up into the surrounding peaks and make a day-long descent back down the wooded and scenic mountains lopes into the village below.

For catskier, heading out onto 400-kilometer (250-mile) long Via Lattea is another great option. The snow cat can get you to different parts of this incredible ski touring route and let you check out different sections throughout a trip.

Why should I choose Val di Susa for my Heliskiing and Catskiing adventure?

Stunning scenery

The Val di Susa in western Italy is incredibly beautiful. Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, many of which reach 3,000 meters in elevation and with a lovely river running through the heart of it, there is plenty to see here. The best way to get out and explore the scenery is with a helicopter or snow cat and head where few backcountry skiers dare to go.

Escape the crowds

The main benefit of using a helicopter or snow cat to head out on a skiing expedition is the ability to cover great distances in short times. This allows you to leave the beaten path behind and strike out into the true Italian alpine wilderness. Take advantage of this great perk and make tracks in unspoiled snow, get unimpeded views of this mountain paradise and enjoy the peaceful solitude that only nature can provide.

Keep warm between runs

Not only does a snow cat (and somewhat a helicopter) allow you to get away from civilization, but it also increases your longevity on the slopes. In between runs, warm your hands and feet inside the cat (or chopper) as you head off from one destination to the next. Instead of returning to a lodge, stay out in the backcountry all day knowing that the warmth can come with you.

What can I expect from the weather during my Heliskiing and Catskiing trip in Val di Susa?

In the winter, the average daily temperatures in Val di Susa hover just above freezing at the base of the valley and steadily decrease as you gain altitude. The valley also receives about 20 to 40 millimeters (0.7 to 1.5 inches) of snow each month during the winter, meaning plenty of powder to go around.

How can I get to Val di Susa?

Any trip to Val di Susa will begin with a flight into Turin Airport (TRN). From here, it is possible to rent a car and drive to your final destination or take a bus.
