Val d’Isère —situated in the department of Saboya, in France— is the perfect place to enjoy spectacular powder snow in untouched areas, surrounded by the wonderful views of the Alps.

This heliboarding trip is ideal for snowboarders with a special love for heights.

In this opportunity, you can choose between different itineraries based in Val d’Isère. Below, you can find more information about each one of them.

Bonneval sur Arc

This trip starts from Pissaillas in Val d’Isère. You will reach Ouille Noire Pass after 40 minutes on skins, and descend to Montets. There, you will enjoy great snowboarding descents towards Bonneval sur Arc, a small town that is the highest resort of the Maurienne. To finish this great heliboarding day, you will enjoy beautiful views on the helicopter flight back to Val d’Isère.

Ruitor/ Miravidi

In this case, you will snowboard to the Petit Saint Bernard Pass from La Rosiere to take the Italian helicopter. You will be able to enjoy several drops choosing between Mt Ouille, Mt Miravidi, Mt Freduaz, Mt Ruitor. After descending on the franco-italian border, you will snowboard back to France.

Valgrisenche Valley

This well-preserved valley on the Italian side of the hill is one of the greatest spots in the Alps to heliboard. The terrain allows more than just one drop and if you like the experience, you may stay at one of the local inns to enjoy the activity during more than one day.

Choose any of the itineraries above and join me in this amazing heliboarding experience in the Alps. Send a request to book this trip, I’ll be glad to guide you through Val d’Isère’s powder snow!

About the guide

With my name I can’t make you believe that I am mountaineer of origin! I am a breton migrant worker who was stranded in the Pyrénées and later in the Alps…
What I like most of my job is the incredible mountain’s support to weave the real relationships in a short time and often the quality with people whom I guide to these beautiful summits. It is with a great pleasure that I put at your disposal my 25 years of experience in the climbing, mountaineering and skiing playgrounds to guide you in your adventure projects. I am also ski instructor and mountain rescuer. See you soon!

Overall the experience was great - Xavier really knew the local area catered to everyones abilities in the group and offered some great advice. I would love to book another day trip (or maybe even a multi day trip!) with Xavier so I could experience some of the peace and quiet you get away from the piestes in the remote areas of the mountains. Would recommend to anyone that wants to explore the mountains away from the crowds.

Goulven a une lecture époustouflante de la montagne. Son histoire personnelle est passionnante et en dit long sur son expertise. Etant guide à travers le monde et co-pilote d’hélicoptère de secours dans les Alpes, on se sent rassuré de le suivre hors des sentiers battus. Je recommande vivement d’être guidé par Goulven, surtout pour des randonnées techniques.

Je recommande vivement de vous entourer de Goulven pour vos expéditions. Outre ses excellentes compétences techniques, vous découvrirez un guide aimant partagé sa riche expérience humaine et professionnelle et soucieux de vous faire vivre de belles choses à ses côtés!

J’ai eu la chance de rencontrer Goulven et d’être guidé par lui sur le Grand Paradis en août 2014. C’est un super compagnon de cordée, un pro de la sécurité, un excellent leader, un défenseur de belles valeurs montagnardes et une personne très riche par le métier diversifié qu’il exerce, guide de haute montagne mais aussi copilote d’hélicoptère.
