Heliski, when done with respect, is perhaps the quintessence of off-piste skiing. The possibilities that Monterosaski and Courmayeur offer are countless: from the easiest routes to the slopes which border in the world of extreme skiing.

Briefing in Alagna, then with the first cable car to Passo dei Salati and by helicopter to 4226 m at the Colle del Lys. Once landed we are only by spoiled for choice: the Lys glacier, the Lost Valley, Valley of the Salza, Eagle Couloir, Stolemberg Direct, Balma Valley, Mine Couloir, Malfatta Valley, Bors Valley, Pylon Couloir, Punta Vittoria, all great runs that lead us directly to Alagna and Gressoney where with the lifts we continue the day of freeride.

From Colle del Lys, or Colle Gnifetti at 4400 meters, you can also take the longest and most popular tour of the Alps. It comes down to Zermatt via the Grenz glacier in the heart of Monte Rosa and then up to the Klein Matterhorn cable car, then down along the Ventina glacier, up the Colle delle Cime Bianche, and then off again to the valley of Courthoud up to Frachey (Champoluc). Then with 3 chairlifts to the Col Bettaforca 2800 m, and off again for the backcountry of the Bettolina, or on the slopes, up to 1800 m at Stafal. Two more lifts and we're back to Passo dei Salati at 2900 meters, for those who are still in the form you can choose between straight channel or at the Balma valley, or alternatively you can go down to the quietest Vallone d'Olen. But, in any case, there is always the piste.
