THE RESPONSE TO HELISKIING IN CANADA – 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.
Not to forget the culinary side of this valley, which leaves nothing to be desired. Traditional dishes are waiting to be discovered! With the Walser Stuber we have a suitable, original accommodation to experience heliskiing at its best.
Hotel - Overview
Walser Schtuba
The Hotel Walser Schtuba is located in Riale at 1720 m and can be reached by car. In January, the helicopter landing pad is only a few minutes away from the hotel. The rooms are nicely decorated. The restaurant attached to the hotel spoils you with excellent Italian cuisine and the wine list leaves nothing to be desired.

Best snow conditions early in the year, over 120 square kilometers of heliski area and any landing points. We make freeride hearts beat faster in Val Formazza. The Formazza Riale region is one of the snowiest regions in the Alps due to its location North-South Alps.

We are completely satisfied and happy with the trip.
