James Orr travelled out to Alagna for one last heliski trip in mid-April with Sunday Times journalist Sean Newsom.
Great late-season snow
The duo were able to enjoy great late-season snow, despite not arriving until 15 April.
At this point all the main lifts in the resort had closed, so they had the mountain to themselves.
The best ski guides in Alagna
James and Sean were lucky enough to enjoy guiding from two of our favourite ski guides in Alagna: Marco Locatelli and Roberto Valzer.
Your own private mountain
The helicopter collected all four from the valley floor and dropped them at Cavallo at 3600m. Marco and Roberto then guided the group down what was effectively their own private mountain.
