Bonneval Tour with Heli Ride

A full ski touring day behind Val d’Isere in the Vanoise National Park starting with a 45-60 minute tour up followed by a gradual descent into a bowl and breathtaking scenery. Some traversing and travelling and more perfectly pitched descents (red run equivalent gradient off piste). Finally some touring around the flat cross country tracks through forests and past streams to arrive at the beautiful and undiscovered small and mainly off piste ski field of Bonneval. Some great cosy restaurant stops as if one was going back in times. Just enough of the day left for a whistle stop tour of a little of Bonneval hidden gems and a very high and sweeping helicopter trip 1000m above the national park back to Val Disere or Tignes. A tiring but truly rewarding day full of diversity and surrounded by nature.
