HELISKI at the Grand Combin

The area around the Grand Combin belongs to the Aosta Valley. Truly a mecca for heliskiing in the Alps. Framed by the Mont Gelé and the Col de Champillon, it awaits with deep powder snow a fantastic view of the glacier massif at over 4000 m altitude. A varied terrain waits at Grand Combin. Open slopes as well as narrow steep sections. For each skiing level, you will find the right descents. The starting point of this exciting experience is the town of Glacier in the municipality of Ollomont (I). Taking off from 1550 m, we first fly up to the 3518 m of Mont Gelé. There are numerous landings in the basin of By that will allow us to take advantage of the different exposures in our search for the best snow.

Prices and Programs




A new destination with a powder guarantee. Whether winter snow or spring-firn: This spot is hot! On every heliskiing day, a glacier and snow paradise awaits us around the four-thousand-meter peak. We use the descents at Grand Combin on the italian side. Diverse descents with different expositions and a breathtaking view are guaranteed on this trip!
thanks to weather influences from the north, west and south, we can expect heavy snowfall during the winter. From February to mid-March we can find the best powder snow conditions and, thanks to the exposition, the fresh snow will stay for several days. At high altitude it is possible to ski until mid-May; with the complicity of snow and sunshine, from mid-March, snow quickly turns into a paradise for the lovers of "firn". Our Team is always up to date about weather forecast, snow conditions and avalanche risk thanks to the regular support and exchange with the local Snow and Avalanche Center.
