To mention “ heliskiing ” creates itself a feeling of euphoria to all skiers looking for big wild spaces.
Indeed, heliski is somehow the ultimate experience for off-piste skiing addicts.
Imagine a typical heliskiing day: From La Rosière ski resort in the Haute Tarentaise valley, you ski to the Petit Saint Bernard Pass. You are at the border between France and Italy, with Savoy on one side and Valle d’Aosta on the other.
Per group of 4, the lucky ones who takes part in the heliskiing excursion climb into the helicopter crossing the breath of the powerful rotor blades. Adrenaline is already being felt. As the helicopter gains altitude, it is an exceptional panorama that unfolds under your eyes. Immaculate landscapes, ridges, cornices, nature in all its splendor. What to take a real breath of fresh air!
Accompanied by your ski instructor, the group gets off the machine, and is now, alone in the mountains. Untouched snow is waiting for you with descents of 1000 to 1700 meters of vertical drop depending on which summit you have been dropped and the snow conditions.
If the excursion plans several drops, the helicopter picks you up in a lost valley to drop you off another summit, for even more pleasure.
