Madesimo Heli skiing

Madesimo is located on the Italian-Swiss border near the Splügen Pass in Lombardy. The plenty heliski possibilities around the village are varied and offer a seemingly unlimited choice of runs.

On bad weather days, we use the small but fine ski area with many freeride possibilities. Food and wine from Lombardy complete the fantastic days in Madesimo.
