Type of Trip
We are happy to invite you to a heliskiing weekend on the sunny side of the Monte Rosa.
During this weekend, we’ll overfly and ski in an amazing area which extends from the Matterhorn to the southeast side of Monte Rosa.
This stunning region has more than 20 landing sites, around 60 ski runs and a unique alpine scenery. In Monte Rosa everyone finds the perfect terrain and lives a different experience every new day.
From December to mid-March you can find here the best powder snow conditions. Ideally, each guide leads a group of no more than 4 guests. That allows us to offer a maximum of flexibility since every minute of your experience is vital to us.
All participants must be safe off-piste skiers in all snow conditions. It’s also mandatory to be fit enough to face pistes up to 6,000 vertical meters each day.
As for the hotel accommodation, we can suggest 3 comfortable and warm hotels: the Dufour, the Nordend or the Gletscher.
The 3-star Dufour Hotel is close to the ski lifts of Gressoney (Punta Jolanda) and offers luxury rooms, suites and a spa area. All the rooms have TV, telephone, bathroom and some of them a private Jacuzzi. The hotel’s restaurant serves excellent Italian cuisine.
The 3-star Nordend Hotel is located in Staffal (a 5-minute walk from the ski lifts). It also has a spa area and modern rooms with TV, telephone and bathroom. The nearby restaurant da Giovanni serves excellent Italian meals.
Finally, the 3-star Gletscher Hotel is near the cable cars as well. It has 12 nice double rooms with private bathroom and TV. There is a spa, with a Turkish bath, a Finnish sauna and a Kneipp bath. The breakfast buffet provides the necessary energy for the skiing days.
You can not miss the opportunity to fly by helicopter and ski in this incredible region of the Alps. Please contact me if you would like to reserve your place for next winter!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?

If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
