Zermatt, Monte Rosa, Gressoney Guided Heliskiing

Join one or several of our local IFMGA mountain guides from the Monterosa team for a heliski day from Zermatt to Gressoney in the Alps of Italy.


1 Day

Jan - Mar, Dec




Let us invite you to this heliski tour in Zermatt that will take you among one of the greatest regions of the Italian Alps.

The Zermatt tour around Monte Rosa and Gressoney is a great opportunity for off-piste skiers with previous experience. Besides that, you should be also in shape to tackle off-piste skiing up to 5.000 vertical meters per day.

The starting point of this tour will be in Gressoney, on the south face of Monte Rosa. According to the snow and weather conditions we can land our helicopter and ski on :

  • Colle de Lys

  • Colle Vera 

  • Felikjoch.


With the help of our qualified guides, you will enjoy the best ski runs according to your expectations and technical level. And once up there, we will live a first great descent over the Grenz, Schwarz or Zwillings glaciers with more than 2.000 vertical meters! Furthermore, during this descent you will enjoy the stunning Matterhorn as a background.

After that, we will take a cable car from Zermatt to the Klein Matterhorn. Here we will decide our second run of the day. The options are Val di Vera or the Cime Bianci. Both of them have ski runs over 2.000 meters or vertical drop, leading down to Champoluc.

Finally, in Champoluc we will take another lift to get to Gressoney by late afternoon. Here is the end of such amazing heliskiing day**.** 

The best months to enjoy heliskiing in perfect snow conditions are from December to mid-March. We can take a maximum of 4 participants per guide. That way we can prioritise your security since every minute of your experience is vital to us.

It is certainly a perfect option for those who are looking for a safe and fun adventure in the Italian Alps. And if you love this region you can also check our amazing heliskiing program in Courmayeur.
