Heliskiing and Free Ride with Guides


Heliskiing is downhill skiing or snowboarding using a helicopter in the company of skilled certified mountain guides.

The helicopter takes a group to the top of a mountain away from civilized resorts at a height of 2,300m to 3,500m. The participants slide down on skis or snowboards to the valley, from where they are taken back by the helicopter.

Only skiers and snowboarders with good skills of sliding down in virgin snow are admitted. During the program all participants are provided with avalanche safety gear.
