06/03 – 10/03/2019: Italy – Upper Valtellina

Price: 2990 Euro

Already for 2 winters, we enjoy great Heliskiing in the upper Valtellina. With Valleys to the north towards Cima Piazzi we find very nice runs at all levels of steepness, just a few flight minutes away from our base. In the evenings we enjoy great local specialties. If you want to explore something very unique in the Alps, this trip will be the ultimate.

How the trip will proceed

We meet on Wednesday 06th of March 2019 from 6.00 pm on. After your arrival, you will enjoy a fantastic dinner and your guide will introduce you to your Heliski days. After a tasty breakfast just a few minutes away by car the Helicopter will wait for us. The next 3 days will be to enjoy some of the best skiing in a very quiet corner of the alps. As Heliskiing in the Alps is quite a sensitive issue, we agreed to not fly on sundays, instead we will spend the day in the skiarea of Isolaccia or Bormio.


Very good skiing technique in all snow conditions is mandatory.


Bad weather program

On nonflying days or days where the avalanche situation does not allow heliskiing, we are able to reach the ski resort of Bormio or Isolaccia within a 30 minute drive. Here, it is possible to find perfect powder runs even with bad weather conditions.

Our price of 2990 Euro includes following

  • 4 overnights with half board (dinner is just outrages, a great menu)
  • 4 days of guiding by an UIAGM Mountain and Ski guide in a ratio of 1 to 4 clients with a max. of 3 groups
  • 11 hours of helicopter flight time (with 12 clients) between 20 and 25 rides, if there are 8 guests 8 hours helicopter flight time
  • All flight permits, kerosene and cost belonging to the flight operation
  • Scott Alpride Airbag System for rent
  • Safety equipment: Avalanche device, shovel, probe (needs to be announced 30 days before the trip in the office)

Extra costs

  • Travel to the spot
  • Lunch and drinks
  • Extra helicopter hours (with 12 clients 190 Euro per flight hour, with 8 Clients 285 Euro per flight hour)
  • Single room surcharge 40 Euro per night

Helicopter flight hours guarantee

If weather, snow and/or avalanche situation do not allow to use up the included flying hours, we will reimburse you with 130 Euro per non used flight hour. The difference between reimbursed hours and extra hours is occurred by the standby of the Helicopter.

Helicopter operation

We use a very well known Helicopter company that is locally based. The pilot team has extensive experience in Heliskiing as well as mountain flying. They all have proved outstanding skills over the last 5 winters. The helicopter we use is a AS 350, one of the most used helicopters for Heliskiing worldwide. It gives space for 1 guide and 4 clients.

The Hotel

We will be staying in the Mountanin Village of Gorsio in the Hotel Sassella.

The minimum number of clients for this trip is 8 pax, the maximum 12 pax.

Travel preparations

Please note the following three points after your booking:

A good or very good physical shape =>

A realistic self-assessment and an appropriate fitness level is required to join our trips. In order to enjoy long ski days you need to get in shape and train prior to the trip. A good fitness also reduces the risk of injury.

Information about the destination, vaccinations, health =>

Please keep yourself updated about the current (political) situation and country specific particularities of your destination. You can do so by checking the website of the ministry of foreign affairs of your own country.

Travel insurance =>

Please note that there is a potential risk of injury on a ski trip. When travelling abroad several travel insurances are imperative. Besides a travel cancellation insurance we highly recommend a travel health insurance as well as a travel accident insurance. These insurances need to cover potential costs for search and rescue operations and costs for hospital stays etc. It is your own responsibility to make sure you are covered accordingly.

For all of our trips that include a flight, a travel accident and travel health insurance that cover potential costs for search and rescue operations and medical costs (for example hospital stays) is mandatory. The insurance will be queried in our online registration form and we kindly ask you to fill in that information.

Appropriate insurance companies you can find in the internet. Please also check your credit card, eventually the according insurances are included.
