If you think heli-skiing is only for professionals then you're wrong. If you thought it was only for experienced skiers then you're wrong again. And in this case we don't mind telling you that you're wrong, in fact we're glad to. Why? Because we've got one of the most exciting experiences we have come across in a long time to back up our claims. Just think: the ultimate heli-skiing experience across three countries and suited to all levels of skier - doesn't come much better than this, now does it?
Skiing three countries from a helicopter in one trip sounds rare and that's because it is. But with Black Tomato, you can undertake this unprecedented feat in less than a week, tackling the virgin snow of the Swiss, French and Italian Alps.
Travelling in small groups, you'll be worlds away from crowded resorts and endless queues. Instead you will be ushered around the mountains by helicopter and dropped off in some of the best locations on the mountains with the most exquisite views over the valleys and snow-capped peaks. Our experts source the most atmospheric settings using professionals to navigate around the localized weather conditions so that you find the best descents with the highest quality snow.
All trips are tailor made depending on level of expertise, group size and time. However, we strongly recommend taking in all three countries in one trip. Start your trip with a day and night in Verbier, Switzerland, before skiing into Italy where you will stay at a luxury chalet in Cormayeur before being dropped by helicopter the next day to ski into Chamonix in France. Skiing through towering summits and crossing virgin snow and alpine glaciers is capped off with great accommodation and top notch dining. We're pretty sure that you'll never look at a ski holiday in the same way again.
