Description

Join us in a 1-day heliski tour around Gressoney area, on the south side of the Monte Rosa massif.

“My first heliski day” program is the perfect start up for adventurous skiers. Our team of IFMGA mountain and heli guides will provide a perfect process while discovering this paradise.

The Gressoney heliski area spreads from the Matterhorn to the southeast side of Monte Rosa. There are over 20 landing sites, more than 60 runs and a unique mountain scenery, making the heliski area one of the most magnificent and varied in the Alps.

With more than 20 years operating, we have the knowledge to select sweetest descents depending on the snow conditions. Putting safety first, we’ll try to help you fulfill your dreams and expectations. We work with a maximum group size of 4 participants to offer a maximum of flexibility and individuality.

Thanks to the altitude and the influence from the south, Monte Rosa massif can expect heavy snowfall all winter long. Thus we can ski in perfect conditions from December till March.

To start this amazing heliski day we will meet at 9AM in our office in Staffal or by appointment. We’ll do the welcoming, present the daily program and check the equipment. Then we’ll take the lifts to Colle Bettaforca, where our guide will test your ski level doing one run in the ski area. Next we’ll take the helicopter to the nearby 3150m high Bettolina. We’ll ski down through the beautiful slopes of Val de Verra on to Saint Jacques, where we’ll organize lunch.

Back to Gressoney we will take the lifts from Frachey via Colle Bettaforca. And we will be back in Staffal at 4.30PM at the latest.

We are waiting to share our passion for our work and region with you! So please let us know if you have any questions, we will be happy to guide you to spend a unique day in the mountains. And if you don’t feel ready to heliski yet, we also offer other adventures in Italy: Freeride skiing in Courmayeur and Ski tour Alpe Devero
