OUR STORY

We are looking back to more than 20 years of experience in the heliskiing industry. Since 2013 all activities are concentrated under Heli-Guides AG, a Swiss incorporation located at the Lake Constance close to the German City of Konstanz. In fact the roots in the heliskiing industry are much older. Many of nowadays’ senior management of the Heli-Guides Group has been working in the industry for more than 30 years already and are founding members of Guidemonterosa S.R.L. Out of this group, our first heliski operations started at the Monte Rosa more than two decades ago. Nowadays’ destinations like Val Formazza developed to be the first choice for Heliskiing in the Alps, offering exclusive and unique Heliskiing right at your doorstep.

OUR NETWORK

Since its beginnings in Gressoney at the Monte Rosa we have been able to establish more than ten heliski spots and local offices in the Alps. As one of the very few companies in the heliski and freeride business we are a true full-service provider, delivering all services at first hand – including our own helicopter services through GMH Helicopter Service S.R.L., which was founded in 2012. Our helicopter teams provide flying expertise and experience over several decades. Among our own offices, we trust on a strong network of agency and heliskiing partners worldwide, providing you the opportunity for diversified skiing trips in overseas and a reliable service nearby!

YOUR ADVANTAGES

We could list pages here, but we prefer to keep it short and rather let you convince yourself on the spot! No long journey, no jetlag, culinary highlights of Italy, luxury hotels, Airbus AS 350 B3 helicopters which are used in our heliski destinations with small groups of max. 4 participants, offer a maximum of flexibility and service and, last but not least, we can tell you the truth about the weather. 😉 Our heliski destinations are usually located in or close to ski resorts, famous for off-piste skiing and is a true alternative for Downdays!
