Description

Tucked in between the Graian Alps and the Cottian Alps, the Val di Susa is the longest valley in the Italian Alps and the perfect spot for an incredible 1+ day heliskiing adventure.

Taking full advantage of a competent and professional heliskiing service, we will meet up first thing in the morning and fly out to the drop zone.

As we go, we’ll get to enjoy the incredible beauty of the mountains around Sestriere, before hopping off the chopper and into the fresh and unspoiled powder of a remote mountain pass.

From here, the real fun begins as we careen back down, through even more high-quality and untouched powder, back toward the picturesque village of Sestriere.

The way back down will require intermediate-level off-piste skiing abilities and yield incredible views of this sublimely beautiful part of the Italian Alps.

Once we arrive back in the village, you’ll have the rest of the day to explore this luxurious part of the city of Turin before deciding what to do next.

The price of only one heli-drop is included in this price, however, if you want to extend the trip and head out again the following day (and why wouldn’t you?) then we can fix a new price and repeat the incredible process once again.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this incredibly fun, exciting and scenic 1+ day heliskiing adventure in the stunning Val di Susa!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you may also enjoy my 4-day off-piste ski touring trip to nearby Mont Blanc!

Mountain Guide

I am Reccardo Olliveri, class 1975, registered to the Alpine Guide College of Piemonte since 2002 and graduated in environment and territory engineering at the Turin technical college. I live at Turin, but I am resident in the Alps where I practice the mountaineering activity all through the year; I love the void and I play every time I can; on rock, ice, dry tooling and also skiing.

Its with great passion that I continue practicing the mountaineering activity and I dedicate myself to pass on to all those interested to know, the spirit and the ability to dedicate oneself close to the mountain in all its forms.

Riccardo was an exceptional guide. On this 4 day skiing trip with him, he taught me how to ski tour and took me to many incredible locations. He was happy and able to help me whenever I got to a difficult location on the mountain and ensured I was always comfortable with what I was doing. Additionally, he is quite a great photographer so I got many nice photos from the adventure. I would definitely recommend Riccardo and this trip for anyone who is interested in trying off-piste skiing or ski touring.

I did the 4 day off piste at Mont Blanc. Riccardo is a very patient,funny and professional guide. He definitely speaks all 3 languages fluently and is accessible to ask questions and plan your ski trip. His vast knowledge about the mountain and skiing are incredible.He is always on time and checks the weather the night before to determine the iternary for the next day. He is very organized and helpful too. He even came with me to get my ski gear. He will always give you suggestions on which mountain and will ask what you would like to do. Due to the bad weather, I got to ski La Flegere and Le Tour. The views were still incredible and we had fresh powder snow. I had a great time and learned alot from him. It was an incredible experience that I will never forget and would definitely recommend him.
