Mountain Guiding

Exploring the hidden runs and finding secret stashes of powder and invigorating jumps is all part of the excitement of skiing off-piste. However, in order to uncover the best lines in the safest way possible, we would recommend hiring an experienced mountain guide for the day.

Heli-Skiing

To fully experience virgin runs with the freshest of powder, book a heli-flight to one of the many mountain peaks available in Tignes.
