Heliski is the perfect way to reach hidden slope inaccessible to many. With Alagna ski guides you have the best suggestions to reach spectacular spots via helicopter to reach places you just can’t get to, even with skins and crampons.
On Mont Rosa there are 15 official heli-landing spots which allow us to reach spectacular slopes with an elevation difference higher than 3000m. Mont Rosa is one of the largest areas in the Alps where you can do heli skiing. You can even go to Zermatt in 1 day: fly up to Colle del Lys at 4200m and ski off piste until Zermatt and then return to Alagna using the ski lifts of Cervinia, Ayas, and Gressoney. This is an unforgettable experience: 70km’s in only 1 day!
The ski school has been open since 1965, and has 30 ski instructors and offer courses for all levels. We can book lessons at Monterosaski, using the skilifts from Alagna town centre or use the ski pistes of Wold which is a little ski resort about 1,5 km from Alagna and especially suitable for little ones and absolute beginners; just perfect for starters.
Heliski week in Alagna: 25 landings and loads of descents; 3000 metres of level difference and never the same terrain; steep gullies, routes over the glacier, wide valleys and infinite space.
Our alpine guides know the freeride paradise like the back of their hand. Skiing the vast off piste routes of Monterosa ski with them, means discovering where the best snow lies, where the most thrilling gullies are, where the view is simply breathtaking and how exhilarating heliskiing is.
Alagna: a ski area with no borders awaits off piste enthusiasts, with an infinite choice between steep couloirs, soft powder, ample space covered in powder snow and kilometers of easy routes, that snake between alpine lakes and meadows; no matter what the season, you can be assured of a promise of an unfailing emotional experience. Routes to dream of between the Walser mountain huts of Otro or hidden routes in the Alta Valsesia Natural Park, where for each skier, only the hectares of snowy valleys are counted and not the kilometer of ski pistes. A week is not enough to get to know all its secrets, but it is a start.
