Switzerland

With its ease of access and location in the heart of the Alps, Switzerland is the perfect place to get a taste for heli-skiing. From bases in Verbier, Zermatt, Arolla and Chamonix, we offer a wide range of different adventures, including a variation of the Classic Chamonix to Zermatt, Haute Route.

Heli-skiing in Switzerland, and in Europe in general, is totally different to the vast wilderness areas like British Columbia and Alaska. With only a limited number of designated landings and pickups, your choice of run is dictated more by where you are allowed to land than it is by where the best snow conditions are.

That said, the Swiss Alps can offer some of the most spectacular, long descents imaginable and its rich mountain culture, charming traditional villages and delicious food and wine are all part of the experience.

Rich History and Alpine Charm

Seeped in alpine history and dotted with picturesque mountain villages it takes no time to reach Switzerland from most major European cities. You can be sitting at your desk in London one minute and getting up close and personal with some of the most awe-inspiring peaks in the Alps the next.

Epic Long Descents

Big, long runs of between 1,700 and 2,000 vertical metres are the norm in Switzerland – that’s more than double the length of an average heli-ski run in Canada.
