Description

Val d’Isère, thanks to its closeness to Italy, offers many amazing heliskiing possibilities: you can either enjoy pick ups from neighbouring valleys or drops on the Italian side. These heliskiing days will stay in your memory because of the quantity and quality of the skiing, as well as for the beauty of the mountains seen from above, and the excitement of flying.

Please find below some of the beautiful itineraries we can choose from, based in Val d'Isère or in other ski resorts of Tarentaise and Maurienne.

Bonneval sur Arc

Starting from Pissaillas in Val d’Isere, and after approximately 40 minutes of skinning, we reach the Ouille Noire Pass and descend onto the neighbouring valley of the Montets, where we will enjoy long descents of powder or spring snow, all the way down to the small town of Bonneval sur Arc. This is the resort of the Maurienne, located at the foot of the Albarron (3640m), amidst a landscape of great glaciers scarred by gigantic seracs.

The spectacular helicopter flight back to Val d’Isere, 1000m above the Vanoise National Parc, finishes off this splendid day of skiing.

Ruitor / Miravidi

Starting from La Rosiere, we ski towards the Petit Saint Bernard Pass where the Italian helicopter await us. According to the snow and weather conditions, there are many itineraries to choose from: Mt Ouille, Mt Miravidi, Mt Freduaz, Mt Ruitor and more!  It is possible to opt for one, two or even three consecutive drops, the last one on the French-Italian border to ski back to France.

Valgrisenche Valley

The valley of Valgrisenche, on the Italian side of the mountain, is only a few kilometers away from Val d’Isere by helicopter, but it takes hours to reach it by road. This preserved valley is one of the heliski hotspots of the Alps, where you can do several consecutive drops over one or two days, sleeping in one of the atmospheric local inns.

One or more days of heliski can be combined with off-piste and ski-touring days. Send me a request if you want to join me on this great heliskiing tour! We can discuss your projects and aspirations and define together an ad-hoc program.

Great day with Boris and easy to book.

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.
