Val D’Aran – Spanish Pyrenees
We had the pleasure of heli-skiing with our local partners, Kabi, in this seemingly endless area of diverse terrain. Possibly one of the only areas in Europe where you can land the helicopter anywhere you can see! As long as the pilot can land, then you can get out and ski! Over 400 sqkms. of skiable terrain awaits you in this extremely special area of the Pyrenees.
Following equipment checks and a briefing from our Kabi guides you are taken to the heli port at the bottom of the valley. Here you are picked up by highly skilled pilots and whisked off to fresh untracked snow. Just you, your guide and nature.
This area is also ideal for first timers to experience the thrill and beauty of heli-skiing. Our guides will choose the best runs to suit your ability and the helicopter is always there to pick you up and take you to the next descent.
For a little more adventure, try Helirando – or heli-touring. The helicopter drops you at an accessible peak and you begin your ski. From a chosen point you strap on your skins and begin to ski tour to a peak where the helicopter can’t land.
From here your guide chooses the descent, either to be picked up by the chopper for another run, to another point for another tour or all the way down to the valley below!
A fantastic experience that requires a good level of fitness.
