Heli-skiing

Reach higher with heli-skiing

​​For those of us who likes to take a walk on the wild side, heli-skiing is the way to go. We’re working with Air Zermatt to let you fly by helicopter and go way beyond the groomed slopes — on to the remotest areas. Together we arrange help-skiing, free riding or guided ski tours. It will be the ski trip of a lifetime.
