Description

Can you imagine skiing on untouched poder snow in places where you can only get to by helicopter? Then you must join one of our guides for this 1-day heliskiing tour in Val Formazza, Piedmont, Italy.

Val Formazza is the Alps secret little jewel. This stunning valley located in Piedmont, Italy is known as the Alps' “Little Canada” for its top-quality snow. It is surrounded by three majestic mountains: Ofenhorn (3250 meters), Basodino (3270 meters) and Blinnenhorn (3373 meters).

The region's altitude turns it into a snow powder paradise. With 120 square kilometers to explore, the area offers the best features for heliskiing. Even the most experienced heliskiers will be amazed by the endless variety of off-piste descents.

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!

Just have to say what an excellent week I had in Val Formazza last week with Heli Guides. Our guide Alberto was great and was able to find us great lines to ski as well as being great company and possessing a great nose for a fine bottle of wine. The hotel we stayed in - the Walser Schtuba - was great with comfortable rooms and top notch meals and wine. You could not ask for more after a great days skiing than to come back and relax in this great hotel. I was most impressed with all aspects of Heli Guides / Guide Monterosa and there willingness to make your holiday truly memorable.

It was just amazing. The guide was both fun and serious. Reassuring and very competent. The helicopter company was great too and the pilot (Alessandro) was super fast.

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!
