Helicopter skiing

As a reminder, keep in mind that helicopter drop-off is forbidden in France. What is on the other hand allowed is to to pick-up skiers with a heli. Heliski drop-off is possible in Italy (Aosta Valley) or Switzerland.

If you wish to be dropped off, we invite you to directly  contact a heli company to book flight and guide.

On the 3 Vallées ski resort, the Méribel Mountain Guide’s office can offer you an all inclusive package, with backcountry skiing or ski touring, topped off by a heli flight to back to the resort.

Contact us for more information.

Private guiding (price per group)

One of our mountain guides, exclusively booked by you or your group, will guide your party.

Planchette freeride day

Discover one of the most amazing and beautiful off-piste runs of the 3 Valleys: the “Planchette” run which takes place in the Maurienne valley, very close to the Italian border !

We’ll use the lifts to reach La Masse in les Menuires. We’ll then slide (or hike a bit more with your skitouring gear if you hava any) on the Maurienne side down a sunny and wide series of slopes to the Planchette restaurant, lost in the mountains. A typical local meal will await the worthy !

We will make it back by taxi to the Val Thorens lifts for those who wish to keep on skiing. For those who would rather enjoy a magnificent panoramic flight above this amazing part of the french Alps, a helicopter flight to join Méribel is available !

Ski touring gear is recommended but not mandatory, we adapt to whatever skis you will show up with.

Required ski level : black slope, or off-piste experience.

Price : from 250€ per person (taxi) / from 429€ per person (helicopter)
