Here you can see a nice film about our Heliski Trips in Valtellina
Heliskiing Lombardia… almost hard to believe, but also in the Alps we still have some very nice places for Heliskiing. Since many years we really appreciate coming to the Valtellina in northern Italy. Valtellina is one of the longest valleys in the Alps and stretches from Lago di Como to the west to the Ortler to the east. Many of its side valleys to the north border with Switzerland. In many of those Valleys, we find very nice possibilities to reach some of the finest runs by Helicopter. This spot is a real alternative for Heliskiing to a lot of destinations far away abroad.
How a Heliskitrip in Lombardia will run for you
After your arrival at the very nice Hotel Casa dei Baff in the township of Ardenno right in the valley floor of Valtellina we will make you comfortable with your heliski trip. The next morning after a safety briefing at the helicopter we will take off right away. Depending on snow and weather conditions we decide each day in which area we will fly to. To be efficient with our helicopter flight time, some days we might use the car and drive a maximum of 30 minutes into a side valley to take off from there. A lot of our areas are reachable by helicopter within less than 8 minutes right from the helicopter base, that is situated only 5 minutes away from the hotel. If the weather or snow does not allow heliskiing we are able to reach some very unknown ski areas called Pescegallo or Prato Valentino in about 30 minutes drive. After a day full of impressions we return to our hotel, relax and enjoy the great cuisine of Valtellina.
Very good skiing technique in all snow conditions is mandatory.
Bad weather days / downdays
On non flying days or days where the avalanche situation does not allow heliskiing, we have the possibility to ski in the very nice ski area of Pescegallo or Prato Valentino about 30 minutes away by car.

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 stand by of the Helicopter.
We use a very well known Helicopter company that is localy 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.
From winter 2019 we will stay directly in the valley floor of Valtellina, just 5 minutes away from the base of the helicopters. The place is called Le Case dei Baff and it is an agrotourismmo hotel. Most of the products served are homemade. In a huge cellar they dry and ripe tasty Bresoulas (a local kind of sausage). Each year 9000 bottles of nice red wine are produced only for the use in their restaurant. Walking into the traditional restaurant a nice smell of freshly cooked food welcomes you. We are sure you will feel very comfortable staying with family Cerasa at their estate.
