Although Heli skiing is banned in France, We are allowed to do whats locally know as a reverse Heli Ski. What this means is an off-piste decent followed by a heli pick up and return to resort! In Val d'Isere and Tignes we have two options.
The Tour de Chevril - 450€
Price is split between up to 4 people & includes your guide and return by helicopter.
This half day trip involves a short hike along the Toviere ridge to 'Mickeys Ears' then a choice of Couloirs which marks the start of the long descent down to the Lac du Chevril, passing through the Bois de la Laye forest along the way.
We then have the option to be brought back to Tignes or Val d'Isere and even be dropped up top on Solaise.
Touring skis are NOT required for this trip.
Alternative routes are possible depending on your skiing ability and fitness, for instance its possible to avoid most of the hiking and ski an easier route if need be and at the discretion of the instructor.
Bonneval Tour - 1100€
Price is split between up to 4 people & includes your guide and return by helicopter. There is also the cost of the Bonneval day pass, 24€ approx.
For a full on adventure day, we start by accessing the Val d'Isere glacier followed by a short ski tour to get us over the back! Then its the long descent down to Bonneval Sur Arc, a small ski area in a totally different valley to Val d'Isere, the only way back is by helicopter. A stop for lunch and time permitting, a ski around Bonneval before making our way up to the landing site! Then its a magnificent flight back to Solaise in Val d'Isere or back over to Tignes with great views over the whole ski area, quite an experience!!!
Touring skis and skins ARE required for this trip.
*Please note these tours are weather dependant, the instructor will contact the pilot on the day and during the tour for weather updates. If the chopper cannot fly we will simply ski off-piste instead and you only pay for the guiding.
You will be given a full safety brief on boarding and disembarking the chopper before it comes and collects us.
For these trips you should be a competent black run skier with some off-piste experience.
Off-piste safety equipment is provided and training will be given as required.
