Epic Europe

VERBIER HELI-SKI

The Valais Region's Freeride Capital is home to some of the Best Heliskiing in the Swiss Alps

With powder runs stretching from along the French border to the Val d'Herens, Verbier offers a wide range of heliskiing options for all abilities. 

 

Verbier has long had a reputation as a freeride skiing paradise, with unlimited off-piste and backcountry access right from the lifts, but when the classic powder runs get tracked out, those in the know call in the helicopter for some of the best heliski descents in Switzerland. With 3 distinct local drop points, there are variations in every direction – throw your ski-touring equipment in the mix, and possibilities are endless. 

 

A quick flight across the Val de Bagnes puts you on top of the Petit Combin (3663m), with everything from gentle powder fields across the Glacier de Corbassiere, or steeper lines off the North Face. In spring conditions, long south-facing runs off the south side await, stretching all the way to the Val d’Entremeont. 

 

Or head towards the French border, and land on the Plateau de Trient, part of the Argentière massif. From there, a series of vast north-facing couloirs deliver you to the Val d’Arpette, some of the most exciting sustained pitches in the region. A flight to the east delivers the summit of the Pigne d’Arolla, with long varied runs down to the namesake valley. And the Rosa Blanche is the perfect intro-run for intermediate skiers looking to test their off-piste capabilities.

  • "A day of heliskiing in Italy culminated with a sunset run off the Breuil saddle of the Matterhorn - one of the most thrilling runs of my life - and we left our tracks in a place where they remained for a week afterward, reminding us of the best day of skiing in our life!" - WG, CT USA
  • "I have done trips in the Alps and surrounding regions with Epic Europe for the past 4 years, and every one has been unique and surpassed the last. The experiences that they deliver due to their personal relationships are a window into the real life in these incredible locations, and they share these friendships with us." - K.B., CT USA

  • "Hiking in the Alps has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn't sure that a typical trip was my style. Epic Europe designed a custom route for our group, staying in the best little inns and hotels, and we felt like we had the trails to ourselves. I will come back again and again to explore new trails with their guides every year that I can!" - R.B., NY USA
  • "Our family spent last Christmas in Zermatt on a bespoke Epic Europe ski trip. The special thought and care that they put into our holiday made it our best yet." - L.M.; CA USA

  • "Epic Europe has coordinated several corporate events for us over the past 5 years, and I cannot imagine a more professional operation to handle all of the details. From a team-building event for 50 people in a 17th-century castle atop a mountain pass, to marketing conferences and catalog shoots, their knowledge of the best locations in the Alps is second-to-none, and they are as good as it gets at being creative." - E.P., Lugano CH
