Our Heliskiing Areas

VALGRISENCHE Open 20th December to 5th May, the microclimate in the local area and low temperates during winter and spring keep the snow powdery for longer amongst the regions 8kms worth of descents. More than 113 square km of terrain with over 20 landing sites Рaltitudes ranging from 1530m to 3751m and an average vertical drop of 1300-1800m.  Intermediate and advanced terrain, suitable for skiers and snowboarders, with plenty of tree runs. It is accessible from our French-serviced resorts of Espace Killy, 3 Vallees and surrounding area either by minibus or own transport to La Rosiere; with a ski over to the Italian border (minimum two descents required) or helicopter transfers, either one way or return, direct from your resort heliport or our private VHS heli landing spot. By far the quickest and most enjoyable way of accessing this terrain is by helicopter transfer. Valgrisenche is a popular choice for our 2 heli-drop day package.

COURMAYEUR Open 20th December to 5th May, with slopes on the South side of Mt. Blanc, this is an expansive area with terrain to suit all abilities, simply stunning scenery and views over Mt. Blanc and her glaciers and a fantastic mountain restaurant which we ski-doo you into and out of. With around 7 different drop zones up to around 3800m high and multiple descents ranging from 1000m to 2500m of vertical descent, the variety of terrain is huge. Suitable for skiers and snowboarders of all ability levels and accessible from our resorts, in France, by either minibus or helicopter transfer with no minimum number of drops required.

COL DE PETIT ST BERNARD¬†Open around the 10th January to May, this is the closest Heliski area to our French resorts and easily accessed by minibus as well as helicopter transfer options available straight from your resort. Our more entry level Heliski area suitable for skiers and snowboarders of all ability levels and used for “My First Heliski / Board” package. Mainly wide open bowls, rather than trees or couloirs, although some traversing is often required – so competent off piste is still a pre-requisite. We do have some steep, hidden-gem descents considered suitable for advanced ability only, with colouirs and steeps for the so inclined.
