A descent that really commences....from the clouds
Flying in a helicopter is already an exciting experience in itself, when combined with the excitement of an off-slope descent on crystal clear snow, it becomes a unique union: heliskiing.

Skiing using a helicopter as a ski-lift is undoubtedly an unforgettable experience, especially if it takes place within an uncontaminated environment of rare beauty, like that offered by the helibases of Aosta Valley.
You can only engage in heliskiing in the company of alpine guides, or ski instructors in the case of routes that are not considered difficult from an alpinistic point of view.
Obviously it is vitally important to be a good skier; and a group of 4 people is the ideal solution for any descent.
