Lying on the border between the Val de Bagnes and the Grand St. Bernard Valley, in the canton of Valais, the Petit Combin (3672 m) offers amazing possibilities for a great heliboarding day.

The Petit Combin belongs to the Grand Combin massif and from its summit there are spectacular 360-degree panorama views, from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn. Petit Combin is a very popular destination for heliboarding and heliskiing in Europe.

During this day, I will take you to enjoy the many and varied runs available on these mountain. This is the perfect trip por snowboarders and skiers looking for unique descents in the Alps.

The standard runs lead down to the village of Bourg St.-Pierre via the Boveire glacier or to the Fionnay village by the Corbassière glacier. They don’t offer any particular difficulties. Also when there is plenty of snow as to bridge over the crevasses, the Follats Glacier run becomes very popular.

The most challenging route of the Petit Combin is the north-east face, therefore it is the is less-frequented and less-often viable. There are also some skinning options for those who enjoy touring, in the Col l’Ane and in the Col des Otanes.

Please note this is an exclusive programme and I will take care of absolutely everything: I will pick you up in your hotel and then take you to the heli-place. I will also have a transfer ready to pick us up at the bottom of our run

What people are saying about -Gilbert



Gilbert was great company and found a really cool location despite difficult conditions off piste



Olivier our guide was excellent and we would use him again. Unfortunately, we didn't do any Backcountry skiing due to the poor and dangerous conditions. I think Explore-Share should have been more proactive in keeping us informed of the conditions and the fact that it didn't allow for backcountry skiing; we forfeited a day with our guide given the conditions were so bad and the only option was to ski on piste. Further, I would have expected Explore-Share to advise us of the extra cost of the avalanche gear (an extra 600 francs) in advance.
