Heights tingles - winter
Heliski, off-piste skiing, or ski touring
D-0 A private chauffeur will be waiting for you in the beginning of the afternoon at a meeting place in Sion, to take you to your hotel through a road furrowing the sides of a valley which is sidelong to the left shore of the Rhône. Make yourself at home, in a charming historical hotel where the parquet floor will tell you stories at each steps. After having sampled in all simplicity a menu prepared by the owners of the place, get under your cozy duvet for a night in the tranquility of a small snowed up village. D-1 Once the breakfast is taken, and the ski shoes are on foots, meet your mountain guide, which will accompany you on the snow-capped slopes of the region, depending on the program that you will have chosen together beforehand. (Off-piste skiing, ski-touring, ice-climbing…) After a morning in the fresh air, taste a warm meal in a small local restaurant then go on your day between powder snow and ice. Spend your second night in the softness of your wooden room and feel, the time of a relaxing shower, the shivers of the day. In order to impregnate your taste buds of local specialties, walk a few steps until the village and savor a delicious “raclette” or “fondue” with alpine’s cheeses. D-2 Eat an invigorating breakfast. Then, in the morning cold, join the helicopter waiting for you in order to get you in a second to the paradise of eternal snow. On a glacier close to 13000 feet, taste the shiver of high-altitude gliding and enjoy the incredible panorama, rich from its prestigious alpines mountaintops. J-2 - continuation
