From Punta Helbronner there are numerous off-piste itineraries, from the easier Toula glacier to the numerous channels that furrow the mountain and descend towards Courmayeur. From the left flank of the Mont Fréty glacier, starting from the new Torino refuge, a beautiful gully flows into the basin at the foot of the Dent de Jetoula. The proximity of the glacier is an ideal setting for this exciting descent.


  • Day 1
    The descent takes place during the day with departure from Courmayeur, by cable car from La Palud 1370 Mt. to Punta Hellbronner 3428 Mt. Put on your skis along Punta Helbronner to reach the new Torino refuge, from where the descent begins. The first part is not too steep, then a jump of rocks forces you to deviate into the parallel channel to the right.
