Our exclusive heli skiing Piedmont in Val Formazza, known as “Little Canada in the Alps”, is located on the Italian-Swiss border. Val Formazza has an exceptional snow record in the Alps. The unique surroundings, with peaks and glaciers up to 3300m, offer innumerable Heli landing places and opportunities to ski all exposures and varying steepness. The first-class cuisine and wines will round off every skiing day. The spectacular valley of Val Formazza is situate in the Piedmont Italy, between the Swiss regions of Valais and Ticino, and is bordered by three majestic and inspiring Peaks Ofenhorn (3250m), Blinnenhorn (3373m) and the Basodino (3270m) in the meantime our highest landings.
The Val Formazza is one of the heliski jewels in the Alps. The area in Piedmont, Italy, is located close to the Swiss border between Goms in the canton of Valais and the Val Bedretto in the canton of Ticino. Everybody, who already has been here knows that you don’t have to travel around the world to get a nice ski and snowboard experience. The Val Formazza offers flight conditions, in which we individually can pick landing places and runs. That gives us a maximum of flexibility. Heliskiing in the Italian Val Formazza – that means endless possibilities for runs in all exposures and plenty of powder.
Thanks to the weather devide between the northern and southern Alps and a height from over 1800m, best snow conditions exist already early in the winter. Rich snowfalls as well as southern and northern accumulations transform the region repeatedly into a real powder paradise. Therefore, the vallay offers first-class snow conditions throughout the wohle season.
The region offers probably the most potential for heliski in the whole Alps. With an endless variation of descents that will astonish even the most seasoned of heli-skiers. As well as consistently enjoying the most snowfall, Val Formazza is one of the largest and most versatile heli-skiing area in the whole of the Alps, providing an incredible 120 square kilometers to explore.
