Description

The Alps is one of the most famous and impressive mountain ranges in the world. Equal in fame to the likes of the Himalayas, the Rockies, and the Andes, there is nothing quite like this snow capped collection of peaks that stretches across several European countries, from Italy to Switzerland.  And on this trip, as a result of the 5 flights we offer, you will have the chance to ski on some of the best slopes within that range. More specifically, you will get to enjoy the powder in La Thuile, which can be found inside of the Aosta valley.

The La Thuile area is very large. It stretches from the Ruitor refuge (3,480m) to Courmayeur, which rests near the majestic Mont Blanc Massif. Thus why having 5 flights that can take you to 5 different locations is so amazing. And with each flight, you will get to see new views from new angles of the incredible scenery. You will also get to enjoy new slopes and new descents.

We always make sure that safety is a priority on our heliskiing trips, and we will keep that in mind when choosing the right descents for you, based on your skill level, avalanche risk, as well as weather and snow conditions. Also, because you will be skiing close to 10,000 total vertical metres on this trip, you should be in good physical condition, and have prior off-piste skiing experience.

For this day trip, you will not only get to experience 5 helicopter rides that will take you throughout La Thuile, you will also get a chance to explore and enjoy skiing in the area as well. So come and send us a request because we'd be more than happy to guide you.

We also offer a 1 day, 1 flight trip, and a 1 day 2 flight trip in La Thuile as well.

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.

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!
