Heliski with Chemmy Alcott

Thursday 7th to Monday 11th March 2019

James Orr Heliski is delighted to announce that four-time Winter Olympian and BBC presenter, Chemmy Alcott, will be hosting a one-off heliskiing adventure for us in Alagna, Italy in March 2019.

This unique trip includes three days’ skiing off-piste with a qualified mountain guide, as well as a full day of heli-skiing including two drops.

Chemmy is looking forward to the trip:

“There are very few ski areas in Europe that I haven’t skied, so to explore a region I have never been before is really exciting. And knowing I will be hosting a great crew and sharing my passion through amazing experiences like heliskiing really is the icing on the cake!”
