SKY HIGH: HELI-SKI CERVINIA
Combine the sensation of a helicopter ride with the irresistible allure of a breathtaking off-piste descent on immaculate crystallised snow; all this is possible thanks to heli-skiing, an activity that operates from the 20th December to the 15st May in the Aosta Valley with regional laws that strictly regulate the activity.
Skiing, using a helicopter as a means of reaching the highest points, is without doubt an unforgettable experience, especially in an pure environment encircled by the most beautiful peaks in the Alps. Cervinia is characterised by open spaces and an altitude difference of 1.500 metres in Valtournenche to 4,600 metres of Monte Rosa and represents undoubtedly one of the best destinations for the practice of heli-skiing. After a snowfall, when the entire valley seems to be still sleeping, there is nothing like a fantastic descent on a slope of untouched powdery snow. A few minutes flight time is all that is needed to reach places of incomparable beauty, where nature reigns; from here you start your descent, from here you start to dream , weightless skis sink softly in the powdery snow and like brushes on a canvas, paint magnificent ribbons, the breeze caressing your face in the enchanted silence of the deserted wild mountain and the sensation is without comparison.
The practice of heli-skiing is carried out in complete safety and with maximum professionalism: It takes place exclusively with the assistance of an Alpine Guide that, as well as being an excellent skier and expert mountaineer, knows their mountain perfectly and according to the snow conditions, knows the appropriate itineraries to recommend every day. The pilots, with lengthy experience in high altitude flying, will take you soaring between the mountains and glaciers of your dreams. To try the intoxication of a descent on untouched slopes it is necessary that you are a capable skier and in good physical condition; all itineraries are available to skiers, snowboarders and telemark skiers. A day, weekend or full week: an unforgettable experience not to be missed off any skier’s curriculum.
Skiing using the helicopter is without doubt an unforgettable and fantastic experience, especially if you practise it in a pristine environment surrounded by the most beautiful Alps peaks.

- From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia-
Heli-skiing is off-trail, downhill skiing or snowboarding that is accessed by a helicopter, as opposed to a ski lift. As early as the late 1950s helicopters were used in Alaska and Europe to access remote terrain, but the birth of heli-skiing as a commercial sport is attributed to Hans Gmoser in 1965.
Skiers board the helicopter and are carried to a landing zone on the mountain. Skis, snowboards and poles are generally carried in an exterior basket loaded and unloaded by a guide. Snow conditions on the mountains vary considerably over the course of the winter as the snow is subjected to sun, wind, temperature variation, and new snowfalls. Snow conditions change almost every day. […]
