BANNED IN FRANCE
Heli-skiing was banned on Mont Blanc by the French President Valerie Giscard after he skied it by helicopter. He appreciated the argument that had been put towards him for the ban that Heli-skiing disturbs the environment and causes a great deal of noise in relation to the number of people who can benefit from this activity. For these same reasons the 1st Mitterand government generalised this to the whole of France. Helicopters are now only allowed to be used in France for work, rescue or transport NOT Heli-skiing or Heli-boarding.
Skiers and Boarders staying in Val Thorens wishing to take part in Heli-Skiing or boarding have to travel to Italy or Switzerland in order to do so. Val Thorens Helicopters can organise helicopter and non-helicopter pick-ups and drop off's from Val Thorens to make your heli-skiing / heli-boarding dreams come true.
