Highlights

 
     

    Are you looking for the perfect place for a heliboard tour in Europe? Then come join me on this guided trip in Arolla or Verbier.

    Verbier is located in the southwest of Switzerland. It’s one of the major ski areas in the Swiss Alps and known as one of the best backcountry areas in the world. A few kilometers southeast is Arolla, another small ski resort village with a spectacular scenery.

    And the terrain that surrounds both these villages is one of the favourites for snowboarders due to the steady and steep gradient which allows long powder runs.

    My plan is to  meet with you early in the morning and take you up for 2 drops in this beautiful area. There are many options to choose from. The usual itinerary will take us to Pigne d’Arolla and Rosablanche, returning through the 4 Vallées. But there are many other slopes we can go too.

    Heliboarding there with an IFMGA mountain guide is compulsory. 

    I usually take my client to 2 heli drops (Pigne d’Arolla + Rosablanche), leaving either from Verbier either from Arolla.

    So don’t hesitate and send me a request to book this Guided heliboarding  trip leaving from Arolla or Verbier and dropping in the best backcountry terrain in Switzerland. I welcome skiers also!

    And if you’re looking for other Heliboarding options, please take a look at my Petit Combin heliboarding day, Valais and my Trient Glacier guided heliboarding day.

    Bonjour Anne-Françoise, La sortie de samedi dernier m’a entièrement ravi : excellente ambiance, baptême de l’air paisible, parcours de toute beauté sous l’œil attentif et encourageant de Peter, bref un grand moment de ski, en prime sous un ciel parfaitement dégagé ! Bravo pour l’organisation, en ce compris la navette de retour et la livraison sur place des packs de sécurité. Merci pour tout et….à la prochaine !!!
