Meet the team

Arnaldo Giavelli : International ski instructor

Born in Valle Stura Arnaldo is an excellent Italian qualified ski instructor and it is thanks to his local knowledge that we have been allowed to create our heli-ski base in the valley. He knows these mountains by heart as they are his back garden, where he spends his summers hunting and fishing and winters skiing.

“I am waiting to greet you and show you around this stunning valley which i have know from my earliest childhood.”

Bruno Roche : International mountain guide

Based in Chamonix and an expert skier, Bruno discovered Val Stura 5 years ago with his friend and client, Denis Smyslov. He is renowned for his willingness to help at all times, and his focus on even the smallest needs of his clients to help create the perfect day.

“Valle Stura heli-skiing is magical because it remains one of the last places of complete wilderness and pristine beauty, We want to keep it that way, which is why we cater only for a privileged few and avoid the crowds.”

Yoann Boutin : International ski instructor

Yoann has travelled the world skiing and competing as a member of the Pro Ride World Tour and more recently team manager for the Dynastar Free ride team. Each time Yoann skis in the Stura area he is able to ski new lines.

“Everytime I come here I am reminded that it is one of the top 10 secret powder areas in the world.”

Denis Smyslov : The joker in the pack

Denis has heli-skied and ski toured all over the world, and he considers Valle Stura to be the best area anywhere for him and his friends. Valle Stura has become a secret garden for it concentrates all characteristics a ski lover would dream of…

Leaving Moscow by 6 am, on the slopes by 10 am, finishing the day with a wonderful “Barolo” wine and exceptional home cooked Italian food shared with friends, this exhilarating routine has become a classic escape for Denis.

“My goal is to continue to introduce only a limited number of skiers to this unique area, while retaining the principals of respecting nature and the environment.”
