La Thuile, Aosta Valley, Guided Heliskiing, 1 Flight

One of our IFMGA certified mountain guides wants to take you on a 1 day, 1 flight heliskiing adventure in La Thuile, in the Aosta valley of northern Italy.

Not specified


1 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Dec




The Aosta valley is full of beautiful areas that offer excellent skiing. And on this heliskiing trip, you will have the chance to experience the slopes and powder of one of the more beautiful areas in the valley, La Thuile.

Since this trip only involves a single helicopter flight, it is geared toward people who are new to heliskiing. Hence why we like to refer to it as a My First Heliski Day trip. However, I have no doubt that after this full day skiing experience you will be anxious to enjoy more flights in the future.

Throughout the day, you will have ample opportunity to admire the surrounding Alps, including the famous Mont Blanc mountain (4,810m). You will also be able to see the Grand Combin (4,314m) and the Monte Rosa range. Also, because this is a heliskiing trip, you will have a great deal of choice of where you wish to go and ski.

The possible locations the helicopter can take you include the following:

  • Miravidi

  • Mont Ouille

  • Pointe Lechaud

  • Testa del Ruitor

  • Les Vedettes

  • Becca Bianca

Our guides have years of experience in the Aosta valley, so we know the best places to go. And we will see to it that with our experience, we will make sure your heliski experience in La Thuile is unforgettable. Our only requirements are that participants are in good physical condition and have some prior off-piste skiing experience because you will be skiing up to 2000 vertical metres throughout the day.

So if you want to enjoy this amazing experience, please send us a request. We can't wait to guide you and show you the beauty and fun of La Thuile.

We also offer a similar 1 day, 1 flight heliskiing trip in Valgrisenche, which is also located in the gorgeous Aosta valley.

- Guiding fee

Guide Monte Rosa was founded after a strong snowfall in winter 1996. The Monte Rosa, while it is probably one of the most charming places in the Alps, is our base. The area offers unforgettable experience - the spectacular and in the same time fascinating landscape of the Monte Rosa is part of our freeride and heliski program.

Our team has now been operating in this area for more than 18 years. Thanks to our know how and knowledge of our area, we can guarantee a perfect process and offering a maximum of flexibility and individuality. Our highly experienced IFMGA guides will select the best descents according to the snow conditions and your ski level. Putting safety first, their goal is to help you fulfil your dreams and expectations.
We would be delighted to share our passion for our work and region with you! Have a look to what we do with our friends and clients and get in touch with us to discuss about it. It will be our pleasure to guide you here !

We had a fantastic day with Alesandro in La Thuile. It had not snowed much for over 3 weeks, so he recommended that we go Ski Touring, and we managed to find fresh tracks. Could not have gone better!

Just have to say what an excellent week I had in Val Formazza last week with Heli Guides. Our guide Alberto was great and was able to find us great lines to ski as well as being great company and possessing a great nose for a fine bottle of wine. The hotel we stayed in - the Walser Schtuba - was great with comfortable rooms and top notch meals and wine. You could not ask for more after a great days skiing than to come back and relax in this great hotel. I was most impressed with all aspects of Heli Guides / Guide Monterosa and there willingness to make your holiday truly memorable.

It was just amazing. The guide was both fun and serious. Reassuring and very competent. The helicopter company was great too and the pilot (Alessandro) was super fast.

Amazing experience ! Very nice guide, focused on security and carring his clients

Heliskiing in Courmayeur is just amazing. The sceneries were stunning, the snow was perfect, we were along in the middle of nowhere. Organisation was impeccable, with Ode taking care of us right from the beginning. We did not wait at all and helicopter picked us up immediately for the first ride. Alessandro the pilot was super kind and helpful. We did two drops on two neighboring glaciers, 5 minutes helicopter ride. Only thing is that the downhill could have been longer, but that is due to the fact that wind conditions were extreme and hence only limited choice of dropping areas. I highly recommend this trip!
