Heliboarding at La Thuile and Valgrisenche

Join Ia certified mountain guide on a unique heliboarding excursion in La Thuile & Valgrisenche!



2 Days

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, Dec




The beautiful La Thuile and Valgrisenche are located in the Aosta Valley in Italy. With their stunning mountains and snowy winters, they are the ideal location for snowboarding and skiing! On this 2-day heliboarding excursion to La Thuile and Valgrisenche I will show you some of its most superb slopes!

On the first day of our tour, the helicopter will pick us up at the Petit Bernard Pass and take us either to Mont Miravidi or Ouiller. This will be dependent on weather conditions and snow quality. From there, we will explore different slopes and head to the beautiful Ruito Glacier. After, we will descend to the Valgrisenche valley and stay in the Perret Hotel. This lovely boutique hotel in the Alps will be a great resting spot and serves some amazing Italian food!

The following day, we will explore the Giasson glacier. Then, we will take a helicopter to the Archeboc summit from where we will descend on our snowboards or skis to Sainte Foy Tarentaise.

For this two day tour you will need some prior snowboarding experience. You will also need to have a good fitness level. The program may be adapted as well, so if you have requests, please don't hesitate to make them known! Snow and weather conditions could also vary the itinerary slightly. Throughout our heliboarding adventure I will be there to help and guide you, ensuring that you make the best of the snow capped mountains!

What people are saying about E-S Adventure Guides



Super expérience, merci à Etienne et au temps qui était au rdv!



Dommage de recevoir des infos en anglais et d'avoir une quantité de mails pour une activité qui pourrait être organisée très simplement... Sinon, l'activité en elle-même était très chouette :-) Merci



Nous avons eu une très chouette introduction à la via ferrata. Christophe a été MAGNIFIQUE pour sa patience, ses encouragements et ses conseils. Nous avons tous adoré.  !



Gauthier was quick to respond in the initial booking process and answered any and all questions. Closer to our trip, he helpfully set me up with our guide on what’s app so we could discuss the plan. Our guide Ivan in Fountainbleau was fantastic - helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. I look forward to working with both explore-share and Ivan again in the future. Would highly recommend.



We had a fantastic 2 days with Christophe - we enjoyed lots of climbing, gained confidence in lead climbing outdoors and learnt a lot about basic safety and rescue techniques. Christophe is a very experienced, knowledgable, encouraging and patient guide and a lot of fun to learn from. The crags that we visited were in good condition and the surrounding area was beautiful.
