Experience level required

We offer trips for intermediate, advanced and expert skiers. Ideally you will need some off-piste experience. As a minimum, you should be comfortable linking 10 turns in powder snow on a slope equivalent of a red run to join one of our trips. If in any doubt, simply give us a call. We also offer pre-trip skills workshops where we will cover the basics required for joining a heliski trip.

Safety First

Heli-skiing is truly a phenomenal experience and our aim is to find the best snow available whilst taking the greatest precautions for the safety of everyone involved. Snow and weather conditions will be carefully scrutinised in preparation for your trip. Everyone joining our trips will need to carry an up to date airbag backpack, transceiver, shovel and probe. Naturally we will brief you how to use them, but if you are unsure, we also offer a half day Essential Skills Workshop and Off-Piste Technique Workshops (details on the pricing page) to ensure you are ready for your trip.
