Description

An absolute thrill ride in every sense, this full day heliskiing tour on Monte Rosa (4,634m) will leave you breathless!

One of the highest heliskiing tours in all of Europe, on this trip, you will get to enjoy some of the finest, most remote slopes in the Alps at an altitude exceeding 4,200 meters.

Beginning in either Gressony or Champuloc, we will make our way to Bettaforca.  From there, we will take the helicopter up to Lysjoch (4,248m). While the ride may be short, it is incredibly scenic, as you circumvent the entire Monte Rosa massif. Moreover, you will also get to admire the gorgeousness of the Aosta valley, one of the finest and most stunning areas in all of the Italian Alps.

From Lysjoh, you will get to ski along the incredible Grenzgletscher until you reach Furi. After that, we’ll make our way to Cervinia, taking advantage of the lifts until we reach the Klein Matterhorn. From there, we’ll make our way to the Verra glacier and enjoy a descent to the village of Champoluc before taking the lifts down to Gressoney. Thus concluding the adventure.

Full of beautiful scenery and great skiing, this full day trip will produce enough memories to last a lifetime. However, to participate, it is important that you have prior off-piste skiing experience. You also must be in good physical condition.

If you would like to take advantage of this great opportunity to explore Monte Rosa in a truly original, thrilling way, just send us a request.

We also offer another full day heliskiing trip in the Aosta valley that includes 2 flights and 2 runs.

Bonjour, Très bonne appréciation de notre Guide Maurice . Sinon,........ une réserve majeure concernant le programme et parcours effectué . J'avais choisi la traversée guidée du glacier du géant référence S8QNT3, parcours qui précisait dans sa description , je cite : " Nous commencerons à marcher à travers le glacier , à une altitude de 3452 mètres, à partir de l'hotel Punto Helbronner . Nous atteindrons ensuite 3848 metres d'altitude ou la Aiguille du midi est située". Or ce n'est pas du tout le parcours qui a été effectué !! A savoir, à partir de punto Heilbronner petite incursion d'une demie heure dans la direction de l'aiguille du midi ( il en aurait fallu plutot 4H pour atteindre l'aguille du midi ) puis demi tour en sens contraire côté dent du geant. l4Aiguille du midi n'a as été atteinte mais vue de loin. Strictement aucune explication donnée à ce changement de programme majeur et .... la météo ne peut pas être ce jour là un alibi ! Peut-être pour des raisons d'optimisation commerciale et financière ... avez vous fusionné deux programmes en un ,? Bref, toujours est-il que je ne recommanderai pas votre organisme à mes clubs adhérents Benoit Maisonneuve.

Hello Basically I am satisfied with the whole organization, because in the end everything worked as expected, whereby the guide had a big part in the success! Unfortunately, the information regarding equipment was unclear in advance and sometimes varied, which didn't make it any easier for a beginner like me. In general, the flow of information was rather slow, but towards the end it was sufficient and quick. In general, I would recommend that you revise the list of necessary equipment! Above all, it should be clear what the guest has to bring (with a distinction between "must" and "recommended"), what is provided by the organizer and what could be rented if necessary. Of course, this is not easy to accomplish, as the necessary equipment also depends on the conditions. Best wishes and continued success with the organization of ski trips! Martin
