SwisSKIsafariThe Alps bordering Switzerland, Italy and France are among the most dramatic in the world, but you do not have to be an expert to ski in the midst of them. SwisSkisafari brings within reach of the normal skier a heli-skiing and mountain adventure of a lifetime.
Few outsiders penetrate deep into the hidden valleys between famous ski resorts and it is these relatively undiscovered corners that define the heart of Alpine culture. For those that make the effort, you’ll find some of the best kept secrets of the Alps. A SwisSkisafari experience takes you away from the crowds, to experience spectacular high altitude heli-skiing and breathtaking Alpine scenery.
The secret of our ski safaris come from bringing together the best people in each field to create safaris tailored to each group’s ski level. We offer a backcountry skiing experience accessed by ski lift and helicopter. Your safaris can be purely heli-skiing to access remote and long runs through valleys or alternatively involve ski touring.
SwisSkisafari offer a variety of sensational trips. Heli-skiing your way from the Matterhorn to the Jungfrau with adrenaline packed vertical descents continuing over vast open expanses of glaciers. Ski from valley to valley and allow the helicopter to meet you at the bottom to take you to the top of the next, descending on forest lined ski trails often leading back to the groomed runs of the resorts. Choose your preferred destination along with the style of accommodation you desire anything from authentic private mountain chalets to 5 star resort hotels. Travel is by helicopter and on skis and when moving from one area to another your luggage follows you by road.
SwisSkisafari “Three Countries, Three Valleys” trip is one of our most popular. In a week’s heli-skiing you will cross three country borders, be exposed to three different languages and sample regional specialties through Switzerland, Italy and France. We start in Switzerland with some spectacular heli-drops giving you access to ski long vertical descents of more than 2,000 meters. We ski across the border into Italy, along the way visiting an ancient monastery inhabited by monks, and only accessible by skis. The skiing includes long glaciers, tree skiing and stopping for a hot tea in a mountain refuge.
SwisSkisafari offers 5 to 6 day packages, or weekend getaways with a choice of accommodation to suit different budgets. The SwisSkisafari heli-ski experience is not limited to expert skiers, and no previous heli-ski experience is required. Strong intermediate skiers with a good level of overall fitness can experience SwisSkisafari high-mountain heli-skiing adventures.SwisSKIsafari
