What is heliskiing

Heliski is the combination of a helicopter ride to the summit and an off-piste descent. This experience allows you to admire the view from a unique perspective aboard the helicopter and then descend off-piste from a very high peak.

One must have good skiing skills and a fair amount of experience in off-piste descent to be able to do this.

HOW THE ACTIVITY TAKES PLACE

Heliski in Courmayeur begins at a variable time between 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. depending on snow conditions.

Group members are provided (if not provided) with safety equipment (shovel, artva, probe, and ABS backpack). This is followed by a briefing on the use of off-piste safety equipment and the day’s program (day purchase for the Courmayeur ski area and travel to Col Checrouit for boarding).

The helicopter tour includes two rotations and the option of ski or snowboard descents.

At the end of the descents you return to the ski area for lunch.
