Join Gilbert, a mountain guide with an IFMGA certification, on this 1-day heliboarding adventure to the Trient Glacier. A worth-living experience.


1 Day

Jan - Apr, Dec




Located on the eastern and Swiss side of the Mont Blanc Massif, the Trient Glacier has a 4.3 km extension. It is well-known in the area as an ideal place for heliboarding.

If you are an off-piste snowboarder or skier this is a great chance to do something different and try the experience of glacier skiing. And if you haven’t gone that far on your skiing abilities, don’t be discouraged because Trient has something for you as well!

We will go on a helicopter ride up to the top of the mountain. Once we reach up there, we can decide the best option to make our way down. Off course the different options require different levels of expertise.

Once you send your request we can talk about your expectations and preferences for this heliboarding tour in the Trient Glacier. I’ll make sure you’ll enjoy every single aspect of it.

If you are up to some extra powder snow adventure, check this backcountry skiing tour in Verbier.

Price includes

- Guiding fee

- Transportation start and back

- Helicopter drops as described

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 !!!
