Highlights

 
     

    We are happy to invite you to an unforgettable week in Courmayeur, heliskiing on the southwest face of Mont Blanc.

    Courmayeur is a historical and legendary mountain village in the Aosta Valley, very close to the Mount Blanc Massif. That is why we think it is the perfect place to land our helicopter and ski by the best slopes of the southwestern face of the highest peak of the Alps! In fact, Courmayeur is the only place from where you can go heliskiing right next to Mont Blanc and enjoy the best descents through glaciers and the most virgin snowfields!

    Additionally, Courmayeur counts on a wide variety of ski resorts as well as off-piste itineraries. The surrounding natural beauty in the stunning Mont Blanc makes this trip a delight for the eyes. And the different landing areas will give us access to several and all level runs. We can ski on glaciers like Lee Blanche, Bionassay or Miage and challenge ourselves with drops of 1600 vertical meters.

    Besides all these features, we also promise that you’ll live a safe heliski adventure since we have been working on mountain guiding for more than 20 years. We are currently operating with our own helicopter company in Courmayeur. Thus, we’ll provide all the necessary guarantees for you to spend the best week in Mont Blanc.

    Regarding snow conditions we may expect some snowfalls during the winter. You will find mostly powder from December to mid April. We recommend springtime as the perfect season to find quality snow.

    And in order to offer you a safe experience, we can take with us a maximum of 4 participants. All the members of the group should be fit and have some prior experience in skiing in all kinds of snow.

    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.
