Thanks to its exceptional geographical location between Italy and Switzerland, Chamonix is a major centre for heliskiing from where you can reach a host of exciting destinations.
For a day trip, there’s nothing simpler than getting dropped off by helicopter in Switzerland or Italy (it’s not permitted in France) to ski the finest transalpine slopes of Val Veny, Cervinia, La Thuile and Val Grisanche, or exploring the mountains of the Valais in the areas around Trient in Switzerland, or even Zermatt.
Heliskiing in the Val Veny in Italy
Far from the crowds, hidden slopes and forgotten valleys… acres of blankets of untracked snow. None glacial and glacial drops.
An outstanding, exhilerating experience. An absolute MEGA adventure that you will never forget!! Zoom over mountain ranges in a chopper and get dropped on slopes only birds fly over. Ski or board kilometres of virgin off piste and marvel at the majestic empty mountains. A once in a lifetime adventure, so splash the cash – you’re worth it!
With such a wide range of itineraries, there are possibilties for intermediate to good skiers, from easy to hard. It is possible to start the day skiing spring snow on the south facing slopes, and finish the day powder skiing on the north facing side of the range.

MYTHS ABOUT HELISKIING
1. You have to jump out of the helicopter
You might snigger at this one, but a surprising number of skiers think that we make you jump out of the helicopter. Unless your name is James Bond and you are in a hurry to chase some kind of demented snow villain down a mountain, there is no jumping out of the helicopter. Each run starts with the pilot landing the helicopter and before we unload. The biggest step you’ll make out of the helicopter is about the same size as taking a step out of a 4x4. We’ll leave the jumping out of helicopters to 007.
2. You have to be a top-notch expert to go heli skiing
This is another myth perpetuated by the movies. The reality is that most of our guests tend to ski/board at a strong intermediate to expert level. If you can ski/board a tough red run in any condition then we can take you to heli ski terrain that fits you. Our guests come because they value their time and want a quality ski/board experience with memories that last a lifetime.
3. Helicopter skiing is expensive
We would argue yes and no about this myth. Unfortunately, there is nothing inexpensive about being flown around in a private helicopter. But when you consider that our price is fully-inclusive and the unique experience of being dropped off 2/3 times on the top of Italian Mountain ranges, you quickly realize that it’s an experience that will bring memories that last a lifetime. It’s not often that you can stand on a distant peak, have the entire mountain to yourself, and ski/board a perfect powder run and not have to worry about crowds or lift lines! There’s a reason it’s on everyone’s bucket list. When are you going to tick it off?
