Activity description

The massif of Monte Rosa is one of the true places in Europe where you can live an authentic heliskiing experience! If you are a powder lover, nothing is comparable to the sensations of skiing fresh untouched tracks surrounded by profound silence and breathtaking beauty. 

It's not only about the skiing! Heliskiing is an adrenaline packed experience from the moment you get your feet on the helicopter: the spectacular flights will bring you in remote places with incredible landscapes over snowy mountain peaks.

Why the Monte Rosa massif is one of the most dramatic places where you can go heliskiing in Europe?
The massif counts over than 20 peaks over 4000 meters and wide endless snowy plains and three main valleys renown for their freeride areas: Alagna, Gressoney and Champoluc. Monte Rosa offers descents with an altitude range of over 3000 meters in wild and isolated environments, and often glaciers.
In these type of situation it is crucial to have Francesco, a mountain guide at your side, a valuable asset to avoid the risk of avalanches and crevasses.
