Combine the sensation of a helicopter ride with the irresistible allure of a breathtaking off-piste descent on immaculate crystallised snow; all this is possible thanks to heli-skiing, an activity that operates from the 20th December to the 15st May in the Aosta Valley with regional laws that strictly regulate the activity.
Skiing, using a helicopter as a means of reaching the highest points, is without doubt an unforgettable experience, especially in an unspoilt environment encircled by the most beautiful peaks in the Alps. Cervinia is characterised by open spaces and an altitude difference of 1.500 metres in Valtournenche to 4,600 metres of Monte Rosa and represents undoubtedly one of the best destinations for the practice of heli-skiing. After a snowfall, when the entire valley seems to be still sleeping, there is nothing like a fantastic descent on a slope of untouched powdery snow. A few minutes flight time is all that is needed to reach places of incomparable beauty, where nature reigns; from here you start your descent ... from here you start to dream ... weightless skis sink softly in the powdery snow and like brushes on a canvas, paint magnificent ribbons, the breeze caressing your face…in the enchanted silence of the deserted wild mountain ... the sensation is without comparison.
The practice of heli-skiing is carried out in complete safety and with maximum professionalism: It takes place exclusively with the assistance of an Alpine Guide that, as well as being an excellent skier and expert mountaineer, knows their mountain perfectly and according to the snow conditions, knows the appropriate itineraries to recommend every day. The pilots, with lengthy experience in high altitude flying, will take you soaring between the mountains and glaciers of your dreams. To try the intoxication of a descent on untouched slopes it is necessary that you are a capable skier and in good physical condition; all itineraries are available to skiers, snowboarders and for telemark skiers. A day, weekend or full week: an unforgettable experience not to be missed off any skier’s curriculum ...
