Rising to a height of 3,796 metres, the Pigne d’Arolla is the highest drop-off point around Verbier.
It is the favourite mountain of heli-ski purists and snowboarders as most of the runs are on a steady gradient and all converge upon the Arolla heliport, making several drop-offs a day possible. This is why the Arolla area is often called Switzerland’s “Little Canada”.
Combining the Pigne d’Arolla with a second drop-off on the Rosablanche returning by ski to the slopes of the 4 Vallées is a great option from Verbier.
The northern slopes of the Pigne d’Arolla overlook the Val d’Hérens and the village of Arolla, the southern descend gently down to the Val de Bagnes via the Brenay Glacier whilst the north-eastern slopes plunge into the famous Grande Dixence Lake.
The classic itinerary takes you down to the Vignettes refuge and onto the Pièces Glacier. The Alpine scenery of the Tsijiore Nouve is majestic and unreal.
The famous north face of the mountain, which can be admired longingly from Arolla, is an “extreme run” with some sections steeper than 50 degrees. This was skied for the first time in 1974 by André Anzévui and in 1998 Gilbert Crettaz was the first to snowboard down.
Skinning options via the Col de l’Evêque and the Col des Ignes are perfect for those who like their touring.

Rising to a height of 3,672 metres, the Petit Combin is on the border between the Val de Bagnes and the Grand St. Bernard valley. When viewed from Verbier, it can be seen to the right of its big brother, the Grand Combin (4,314 metres). Its summit appears flat with sharp inclines down the north face.
From its peak, the 360-degree panorama stretches from Mont-Blanc to Cervin, taking in the Bernese and Vaud Alps in between. Looking south, you get a wonderful view of the magnificent and imposing glacier on the north face of the Grand Combin.
The Petit Combin has many and varied freeride runs depending on the chosen itinerary.
The classic runs, without particular difficulty, lead down to Fionnay village via the Corbassière glacier or to the village of Bourg St.-Pierre via the Boveire glacier.
The Follats Glacier run gets increasingly popular when there is enough snow to bridge over the crevasses.
The north-east face, the most arduous itinerary of the Petit Combin, is less-frequented and less-often feasible.
The north face was skied for the first time on March 28, 1958 by Denis Bertholet, Hubert Cretton and René Marcoz.
The Col des Otanes and the Col l’Ane provide some ideal skinning options for those who like their touring.

Rising to a height of 3,300 metres, the drop-off point for the Trient Glacier is on the Col des Plines to the south of the Trient refuge.
The small Trient massif is markedly different to other areas of Valais with its sheer faces of granite like those of Chamonix.
The French border and the Chamonix valley are but a 30-minute hike from the Col des Plines.
The heli-skiing in the Trient massif offers a panoply of outstanding descents of all ranges of difficulty and there are some good skinning options, recommended for those who want to discover less-frequented itineraries.
The standard descents are from the Val d’Arpette to the village of Champex via the Col des Ecandies, from the Saleinaz Glacier to the village of Praz de Fort and the one finishing in the Chamonix valley via the Col du Tour.
The magnificent runs down the Trient glacier and the Orny bowl are also great classics.
For fans of steep and extreme faces the Arpettes corridors will, without a doubt, tick all the boxes of those who love it vertical.

LThe Rosablanche rises to a height of 3,396 metres and lies 3.5km to the south-east of Mont Fort. The summit can be easily reached ski touring from Mont Fort.
The Grand Désert Glacier slopes gently northwards down to Siviez; this classic run is ideal for intermediate skiers who want to experience the thrill of a heli-ski drop. The ‘straight-line’ run down the Vallon of Severeu to Fionnay can be steep in parts and should only be undertaken when snow conditions are stable.
The runs down the Vallon de Prafleuri, the Mourti Glacier and the Fenêtre d’Allèves finish in the village of Pralong (Val des Dix) and necessitate some skinning.

A section of the runs down the Prafleuri and de Mourti glaciers edge the famous lake and imposing dam of Grande Dixence.
If you are setting off from Verbier, make sure you have enough time to get back to the 4 Vallées lift system from Les Collons.
