What’s special about Heliskiing in Chamonix
Chamonix is like the Mekka of the freeride scene and offers a wide potential of freeride possibilities that often end in a convival evening. Stories from the many bars in Chamonix would take a whole book to explain. Thanks to the nearby Courmayeur (through Mont Blanc tunnel), we are in no time in one of the best heliski areas in the Alps. The icing of the cake is the direct proximity to the highest mountain of the Alps, the Mont Blanc with its 4810m.
