Bureau des Guides de Tignes
The guides in Tignes at the Bureau will be happy to help you explore the mountains. Although illegal to land on mountaintops in France when heli-skiing, you are permitted to take off and fly over the border into Italy. A sneaky loophole if ever we saw one! Take off from the Col du Petit St Bernard on the road to Thuile in Italy. More than 25 possible runs are used by the Bureau; your guide will decide the best two or three on the day. Please note that there’s a maximum of four people per flight. From January to May a two-day heli-ski excursion is offered with an overnight stay at St Foy. Also available at the Bureau des Guides are snow-shoeing, ice-climbing, off-piste and cross-country.
