Weather & Destination

The summit & the region

The Grand Combin is, with its more than 4314m, one of the highest summit in the Alps. The icy massif is surrounded with the Val d’Entremont on the West, the Col du Grand Saint Bernard on the North, the Val de Bagnes on the East and the artificial lake of Mauvoison. The area is located at the frontier with Swiss and Italy. The starting point of our activities in the city of Ollomont. This small locality is at the foot of the Grand Combin.

The heliskiing area

We use mostly the South near the Glacier du Sonadon and the 5 km long hanging Glacier du Croissant. Our heliskiing area is on the Italian side. Every drop will give us from 700 to 1300 vertical meters runs. In addition to the wide deep snow and the sparkling glaciers, the region deserve to be known. From Ollomont, it is interesting to visit the origin valley of the Valpelline.

The weather at Grand Combin

Thanks to the meteorological influences from both the North and the South and to the location in the massif, the snow falls in profusion during the winter. We can expect the wanted powder snow and ideal firn conditions during the spring for breath-taking powder-runs.
