Heli-Skiing in Europe

Heli-Skiing in Europe - Description

Heli boarding/skiing in France isn’t legal, but it is in both Switzerland and Italy!!! Heli-boarding/skiing is the easiest and quickest way to access the most exciting and remote mountain areas in the Alps, allowing you to ride untracked powder lines all day long!

At MINT Snowboarding we have one of the few fully qualified snowboard instructors in the world who are also a fully qualified mountain guide working with us. David Gladwin is a UIAGM mountain guide who has been living, working and playing in the Alps for over 15 years.

From 1 day to a full week we offer backcountry heli-boarding/skiing throughout the Swiss and Italian Alps. Join us on classic routes or talk to us and we can create your own bespoke backcountry heli-boarding/skiing adventure.

Is this for me?

This is a perfect adventure for any freeride addict, for those who love to feel the adrenaline or simply for any good skier or snowboarder wanting to discover new horizons.
