HELISKI Madesimo

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. The location of Madesimo at the weather devide between northern and southern Alps usually gives us perfect conditions. 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.




That is why you should travel to Madesimo

Another heliski paradise in the Alps! Especially thanks to the short journey for guests from Europe – in particular from Switzerland, Italy, Austria or Germany – the adventure around a heliskiing trip in Madesimo is even more interesting. Due to this advantage, heliskiing and freeriding in Europe, especially in the Alps, is significantly cheaper than complex trips with long-distance flights to a distant destination. Madesimo has perfect snow conditions – there is no need to hide behind spots in Canada. The location of the area at the weather devide between northern and southern Alps ensures nice skiing and freeriding conditions. Wines and food from the Lombardy complete your skiing days in Madesimo in a culinary way.

Thanks to the weather devide between northern and southern Alps, Madesimo has good snow conditions already early in the year. The valley gets snow from the south and the north, which ensures excellent ski conditions. From December to end of May you will encounter the desired powder snow. On good snow and firn conditions we can ski until May.

Thanks to the geographical position of the ski-area, its favourable climatic conditions and the artificial snowmaking system, the ski season can start in November and go on until late spring. The ski-area has more than 60 km of downhill slopes and 25 km of trails for cross-country skiing, the total surface area being spread over the municipalities of Madesimo, Campodolcino and Piuro. The Sky Express, the most modern underground cable railway in Europe, climbs the 638 m that separate Campodolcino from Motta in only three minutes, where you will find slopes connected with and served by all the ski lifts of the Ski-Area. Thanks to an ample and convenient parking area, access times can be reduced and you can fully enjoy your day on your skis. Without any environmental impact – the work is entirely hidden in the mountain – a solution has been found for an almost complete closure of Madesimo to traffic.
