The Swiss Alpine Club has also published its own scale for ski touring, which is a very good guide.
Steep rocky terrain and exposed places prevail. The belay consists of wire ropes, chains, iron clamps, step pins and longer possibly vertical ladders. The difficulties can be mastered without belaying elements up to III (UIAA climbing scale). Surefootedness and freedom from vertigo, a good physical condition, some strength and endurance in arms and legs, and via ferrata equipment is recommended.
Steep to very steep rocky terrain and longer or very frequent exposed passages prevail. The belay consists of wire ropes, chains, iron clamps, step pins and longer, vertical or overhanging ladders. Clamps and pins can also be further apart. The difficulties can be mastered without belaying elements up to IV (UIAA climbing scale). Surefootedness and freedom from vertigo, a very good physical condition, strength and endurance in arms and legs, and via ferrata equipment is strongly recommended.
Vertical, often overhanging terrain, which is usually very exposed, prevail. Belaying consists of wire ropes, chains, iron clamps, step pins and longer vertical or overhanging ladders. Clamps and pins can be very far apart. In exposed and steep places, there may often be only one wire rope. In terms of ability, enough strength in arms and hands is required, as longer vertical to overhanging sections and smaller climbing sections up to II (UIAA climbing scale) are possible. A via ferrata equipment is a prerequisite! Not suitable for beginners and children!

Mandatory! Please make sure that the batteries are new and the device works.
Mandatory! Please make sure that the gas cartridge is full and that the backpack has been serviced. You should do this every 2-3 years anyway, preferably at a specialist shop.
Here you should take especially freeride skis, optionally also piste skis, because we will certainly go there whizzing. If you do not have suitable skis, please let us know so that we can organize something for you.
If you have any, please take them with you. It can easily be that we go on a tour with or without heli support. Do not forget to pack the skins.
If you are snowboarding, please do not take your park or pipe board, but a good freeride or big mountain board.
If you have one, please take it with you. It can easily be that we go on a tour with or without heli support. Do not forget to pack the skins.
Since they are easy to store in the backpack. Especially for snowboarders, they are very advisable when we need to push out somewhere.

Livigno in Italy is a real highlight for all outdoor activities in the heart of the Italian Alps!

Besides your ski/snowboard stuff, you should also take the following things for yourself:
Since you are on your heli-ski adventure in high alpine terrain, the weather can be very changeable and unpredictable. Therefore, we adjust the program daily to the weather and snow conditions to give you the best and safest experience possible. Nevertheless, here you get an overview of what your adventure could look like:
Day 1: Meet & Greet, preliminary discussion of the coming days, dinner together
Day 2: Material control and piste day. Why? So that our mountain guides can accurately assess your skills and thus also allocate the heligroups for the flights. Maybe there is already a flight! In the evening we all go out for dinner together
Day 3: If the conditions allow it, will be flown. Alternatively, you can go on a tour with or without helicopter support.
Day 4: If for some reason no flights have been made to date, the morning will still be taken as a backup.
Afterwards Farewell and a good journey home.
