The Heli Guides Group
Over 20 years of Heliskiing Experience

WELCOME TO HELI-GUIDES

Join Europe’s leading Heliski Operator: Since more than 20 years Heli-Guides strives to bring you to the peak of skiing experience with epic powder and endless runs! No matter if you’re a first-timer or a Heliski Pro, a family or traveling alone – with a huge variety of terrain, various different programs and exceptional lodging we know how to ignite you with an unforgettable heliskiing adventure!

Today we look back at more than 20 years of experience in the heliskiing business. Since 2013 all our activities are concentrated under Heli-Guides plc, a Swiss joint-stock company based in direct vicinity to the Lake Constance. Our roots actually reach back much further since most of our professionals managing Heli-Guides nowadays have been involved in this sector for more than 30 years. Many of them were co-founders of our first company, Guidemonterosa S.R.L., under which our first heliskiing destination in Gressoney has been operating for over 25 years now. Heliski spots like Madesimo could be added and are nowadays first choices for heliskiing in the Alps. 2019 has been a very sad year for us overshadowed by the accidental death of our Co-Founder and Managing Director Frank Henssler. Subsequently, we restructured the management of our company as well as luckily found great support for our team and we are confidently looking towards our new season!

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 a very few companies in the heliskiing business we are a true full-service provider, delivering all services at first hand – including our own helicopter services through SKY AVIATION S.R.L.. Our helicopter teams provide flying expertise and experience over several decades. Apart of our own offices, we rely on a strong network of agencies and heliskiing partners worldwide, providing you the opportunity for diversified skiing trips in overseas and a reliable service nearby!

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!

Job as travel agent in part-time (m/f/d)? We are looking for reinforcement

In Memory

At this point we remember our friend and co-founder Frank Henssler, who lost his life in a tragic accident. The mountains and the powder were and will always be a home for him.
