VALGRISENCHE, THE RIGHT VALLEY TO HELISKI
A unique, unspoiled destination in Europe, a small Canada in the middle of the Alps.
The valley of Valgrisenche stretches for 28 km and connects the region of Valle d’Aosta to the breathtaking circle of mountains leaning against the French Tarantaise. This wild valley is located at the heart of one of the most beautiful regions of the Alps, surrounded on both sides by mountains with altitudes ranging from 3,000 meters to 3,747 meters; from there, some of the most famous peaks, such as Mont Blanc, Grand Combin, the Matterhorn, Mont Rose and Grand Paradis, can be admired.
OUR BASE In winter, Valgrisenche is the realm of Heliski! A true paradise for skiers and snowboarders who enjoy the thrill of off-piste in untouched areas. We offer you exclusive access to over 20 landing sites, 20 peaks that give us the opportunity to ski on more than a hundred different routes, starting from the top of glaciers to reach mountain pastures, have some runs through forests and finally a ski to the lake of Beauregard at the bottom. For those who love wide open spaces, helicopter is a fantastic way to access our most beautiful slopes with a vertical drop ranging from 1,300 to 2,100 meters. This allows us to choose the best snow conditions.
