Join Gilbert, an IFMGA mountain guide, on this guided heliboarding tour in Arolla or Verbier and enjoy some of the best powder slopes in Switzerland.


+1 Day

Jan - Apr, Dec




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.

Gilbert was great company and found a really cool location despite difficult conditions off piste


Cher Gilbert, Juste un petit mot pour vous remercier au nom de mon fils Axel pour cette merveilleuse journée que vous lui avez fait passer dans nos belles montagnes valaisannes. En plus avec un groupe sympathique, c’est une journée qui restera gravé dans sa mémoire avant qu’il ne reparte hier soir pour reprendre le cours de ses études. En vous réitérant mes remerciements, Meilleures salutations,


Some times u meet people you call "mentors" in your work, or in your life. Very proud of the book of my friend and free-ride instructor for the last 8 years! In the book marked the steepest couloir I ever ride in my life (couloir d'Arpette). Thank you Gilbert


Hi Gilbert, thanks again for a top day heliskiing with you and your team.


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 !!!
