Val Heliski focus on providing all types of backcountry heliskiing and heliboarding adventures at affordable prices accompanied by their expert guides.
Their fully qualified high mountain guides have an expert knowledge of the local terrain.

Val Heliski also run a Heliski preparation course with their UIAGM Mountain Guides and instructors where you'll receive instruction on your technique and avalanche safety training. This is a great way to explore the hidden gems in Meribel with the security and confidence that a professional brings.
