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

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!
