Last week, Val Heliski hosted an amazing day with a dozen keen skiers from our friends, the Ski Club of Great Britain. The fresh snow made conditions ideal for heliskiing in Courmayeur, where the group did two descents.

A VHS representative met the group at the base of La Rosiere, and then skied with them to meet the guides in La Thuile, the Italian side of the Espace San Bernardo.

The guides then drove everyone to the helipad, where they split into 3 separate groups to start heliskiing. The groups consisted of 3 Ski Club members and one UGAIM Italian guide.

Each group then departed amidst clear, sunny skies and headed toward their descents. One of them had this spectacular view of the Italian side of Mont Blanc and the Giant’s Tooth (to the right):

At the end of the day, the guides drove the group back to La Thuile, where a VHS staff member met them and skied with them back to La Rosiere. It was a full day with everyone making first AND last lifts. An aprés drink at a slopeside bar was a relaxing reward for a day of hard skiing for all. We can’t wait to do up again with the Ski Club of GB!
