Feel The Freedom: Heli-Skiing From La Rosiere

Heli-skiing is the feeling of freedom. Whisking you away from the hustle of resort on board our helicopter, within minutes you’re in another world.

“The helicopter blades stop. Silence. Pure white peaks and untouched slopes are all around you. Anything is possible. Choose your line and own it. Just you and the mountain. This is your chance to find the sweetest descent of not just your holiday, but your life.”

Evolution 2 La Rosiere heli-ski guide Jacky Arpin.

Why heli-ski?

Why limit your skiing to where the lifts end? A helicopter drop gives you endless opportunity to find the perfect snow, the best line, the longest descent.

Who is it for?

You don’t have to be a pro to have a go at heli-skiing. Because you choose your line, it can be anything from black run level to freeride. You must be fit and able to adapt to any type of snow – powder to crusty, icy to slushy. Groups of 4 max with a guide.

Where do we go?

Get kitted out at the Evolution 2 La Rosiere shop. All safety gear in included. Ski with your guide over the Col du Petite Saint Bernard into Italy (heli-skiing is not legal in France). From there you can fit one to three heli-drops into your day, from €240.
