Dear friends and heliskiing fans,
all over the world the Corona situation is very tense and as we know the virus had spread rapidly also in Italy.
However, the good news is that heliskiing is possible at our spots and we are allowed to operate our tours there, even though some of the ski areas are still closed. Your safety is important to us. That is why we have prepared a comprehensive hygiene and safety concept.
The Italian government has initiated a variety of measures to prevent the further spread of the Corona virus.
What applies if you have booked a heliskiing tour with us and you are arriving from abroad?
