Air Glacier Heliski Switzerland
Heliski long glacial runs amidst the striking and famous beauty of the Swiss Alps with Air Glacier, flying skiers and boarders for 40 years.
Heliski Season: February – April. It always depends on the amount of snow, if we can start earlier in January & end up the season later in May!
Ebnefluh 3'850 a.s.l.
The helicopter flies us along Schwarzmönch as well as to the Nordwand Ebenefluh to the official mountain landing place. The breathtaking moutains let your heart beat faster and faster. You´ll get instructions by the mountain guide about the mountains and glaciers there. Then it´s time for your ski or snowboard run from Ebenefluh to the Hollandia mountain lodge. We will pass the Sattelhorn along the Langgletscher (glacier) to the Fafleralp (1780 a.s.l.) and the Blatten in Lötschental. In springtime, when there is less snow, you can walk 30-40 minutes to get the next taxi station.

Stechelberg, Bernese Oberland (Trachsellauenen 1200 a.s.l.) It will take you over Petersgrat along the Mutthorn mountain lodge, besides the Lauterbrunnen-Wetterhorn to Tschinelfirn. Between Oberhorn and Breitlauenen is a long traverse really exhausting for snowboarders. When there are great snow conditions the tours will end in Stechelberg but not already in Trachsellauenen. Relax in the Hotel Stechelberg by a glass of wine & food while philosophiing about your heliski adventure. In springtime we will walk 30 minutes to Stechelberg or we will organise a taxi for you.

Both valleys shine with wild romatic steep mountain sides. We will finish our tour on 1780 a.s.l. on the Fafleralp.
In springtime heli ski tours end up here. After a 45 minutes walk you will enter Blatten , where you can stop for a food & drink break in the cosy restaurants.
