Heli Skiing in Val d'Isere

Heli skiing is often described as the pinnacle of skiing and snowboarding off-piste. We agree! 

Over the past 2 seasons, we have linked up Val Heli Skiing to give our basecamp skiers and snowboarders the chance to put their skills to the test in the best conditions possible. Our basecamp ski instructor courses in France, don't just get you BASI qualified, they also ensure that you take your skiing or snowboard up to the highest level. The training on our Basecamp courses can be pretty intense, so something like heli skiing is a great way to really make the most of your new found level.

Check out Resort Manager Tom carving it up!

Thanks to our friends at GoPro we were able to capture some of the magic of making fresh powder tracks.

Here is what  Tom had to say about the day.

” the day started out by heading over from Val d'Isere to La Rosiere. Here we did a some skiing and snowboarding within the resort and across to the Italian boarder. A great warm up and perfect to getting everyone ready for the offpiste, just a helicopter ride away. Having ski'd down to the bottom, we were picked up by the helicopter and whisked back up to the top of the mountain. The flight in the helicopter was pretty incredible in itself. Jumping out of chopper with your ski boots on, at the top of the mountain with nothing but fresh snow all around is a pretty amazing feeling. It really is like living out a dream.

“Amazing skiing in incredible surroundings”

Having clipped in and talked through the best lines to take as well as what to look out for on the way down, We had fresh powder skiing with no lifts in sight  for 2 incredible hours. This is without doubt skiing on a whole new level!” 

The heli skiing day closes out with drinks back at the Val Heli Ski Lodge. Everyone feeling like they have spent the day on top of the world!

Cool thing is, they pretty much have!

By booking heli skiing as a group we are able to ensure our Basecampers get the best possible value. 

We will be back with more trainees for more Heli Skiing action this winter.

Bring it on!
