Description

If you’ve always dreamed of flying over the most incredible mountains in the Italian Alps and skiing on some of the best off-piste slopes, we have the perfect trip for you!

Join one of our guides on this 4-day heliskiing tour in Val Formazza, Piedmont, Italy!

Known as the Alps’ “Little Canada”, this wonderful valley is located in Piedmont, Italy, on the border with Switzerland. With an elevation of about 1200 meters above sea level, top-quality snow is guarranteed.

Additionally, Val Formazza is surrounded by three breathtaking mountains: Ofenhorn (3250 meters), Basodino (3270 meters) and Blinnenhorn (3373 meters). This area provides an incredible 120 square kilometers to explore. That’s the reason why connoisseurs choose it for heliskiing.

Our guides manage heliskiing in this paradise exclusively so they have extensive experience. We prefer a maximum of four participants in each group to ensure an exclusive experience.

On the other hand, your accommodation, The Walser Schtuba, is a charming 3-star hotel with rooms furnished in traditional alpine style. The restaurant offers some of the best local dishes, with an extensive wine list

The first day we will meet at the Walser Schtuba for an equipment check, program preview, safety briefing and dinner. The next three days are entirely for the heliski adventure.

So if you want to live a real once-in-a-lifetime experience, please contact us!  It will be our pleasure to guide around to the untouched powder snow of the unique Val Formazza!

And if you only have one day you can try heliskiing too! Check out our 1-day heliskiing tour in Val Formazza, Piedmont
