Forget long flights and an expensive journey, and come heliskiing with us in the Italian Alps. We offer heliskiing trips and holidays at very affordable prices for all groups and individuals.
Our heliskiing domaine, with over 100 landing zones, is definitely one of the most amazing, vast and varied in the Alps.
Pure Ski Company Heliskiing guides, instructors and pilots are highly qualified and very experienced. They love and know their mountains intimately and want to share it with you – and, of course, the charming Italian welcome, fabulous food and wines!
We offer much more than just Heliskiing
The vast, dramatic landscape between Sestriere, the main venue for the 2006 Winter Olympic Games and the Mont Viso on the Italian/French border has a huge variety of terrain where you can find whatever type of skiing you want to enjoy.
Whether you want to just heliski with each run being between 900 m and 1 200 m vertical or, mix it with some heli touring, the helicopter drops you on to the summit of the mountain, from there you can enjoy a perfect day’s ski touring at your own pace. It is also possible to ski off piste and ski touring from the lifts.

Clients are provided free of charge with an air bag, shovel, probe and arva transciever along with full instruction in using this equipement. We also ensure that every skier is made fully aware of all the safety issues associated with flying in a helicopter in a mountain environment.
