We first pass the "Ouille Noire" pass at 3250 meters high, to dive into the sublime Vallon des Montets.
There, the choices of routes and orientations are huge.
We can ski wonderful lines of powder in winter and transformed snow in spring. We can go around the "Ouille des Reys" to discover the village of "l'Ecot", which is without a doubt, one of the most beautiful villages in France, accessible in winter only to hikers and skiers.
Until the end of March it can be crossed on Skis by the main street, snow-covered ...
We then continue the descent to Bonneval-sur-Arc, the highest resort in Maurienne where calm and authenticity reign, at the foot of the fabulous "Albaron" mountain, capped by hilly glaciers and huge serac bars.
It is at the top of the ski area that the Helicopter comes to pick us up to bring us back to Val d'Isère after a sublime and long flight at 1000m above the Vanoise National Park.
This is one of the most beautiful Heli-skiing flights in the alps for sure.
The value of this Heli-skiing day trip is just unbeatable.
