Heliski Heliboard Switzerland

Have you ever dreamed of Heli Skiing/Boarding in the mountains of Switzerland? Have you ever wondered if you can "Heli" Ski/Snowboard? Have you watched the movies and doubted your ability to do it yourself? Well, if you have a few weeks experience riding off-piste then you too CAN experience our fantastic high alpine powder! Each winter we have a two month window during March & April to access the high alpine terrain with our partners Air Grischa www.airgrischa.ch for Switzerlands best Heliskiing & Heliboarding options.

Vorab – Elm: Start near Flims & descend to Glarus.

 

When conditions allow we prefer our clients to choose their area but it is wise to have other options available as the 5 areas are located many kilometres from each other where snow and weather conditions can vary hugely.
