I have been the owner of the mountain guide office since 2004. My father was a mountain guide and I grew up in the Val d’ Hérens. I live now for many years in Verbier. I graduated from the l'école hôtelière de Lausanne in 1993 and then began my mountain guide training. Well travelled I have guided through the mountains of the Andes, the Himalayas, Alaska, Turkey and Greenland. I'm also a Swiss Snow Sports graduate and a dual paragliding pilot.
Plus de temps doit être consacré à la familiarisation de l\'équipement qu\'on portait dans nos sacs, pelle, sonde. Quoi faire si le guide est emporté par une avalanche, une deuxième radio devrait être porté par un des clients, comment utiliser les émetteurs de détresse lors d\'une recherche.
It was unreal thanks for a great day you guys are the best!! Can\'t wait to ski within you again!
Hi Gilbert, Thank you for the photographs and a great morning Heliskiing. Thanks and kind regards,
Bonjour Anne-Françoise, La sortie de samedi dernier m’a entièrement ravi : excellente ambiance, baptême de l’air paisible, parcours de toute beauté sous l’œil attentif et encourageant de Peter, bref un grand moment de ski, en prime sous un ciel parfaitement dégagé ! Bravo pour l’organisation, en ce compris la navette de retour et la livraison sur place des packs de sécurité. Merci pour tout et….à la prochaine !!!

Hello Gilbert, Thank you very much for such an incredible and memorable ski day! What an experience for our first time - we will definitely do this again. We felt very safe with your knowledge and guiding experience. I do believe the snow gods were on our side that day and week...tremendous! Many thanks again for a fantastic adventure!
Hi Gilbert, thanks again for a top day heliskiing with you and your team.
Cher Gilbert, Juste un petit mot pour vous remercier au nom de mon fils Axel pour cette merveilleuse journée que vous lui avez fait passer dans nos belles montagnes valaisannes. En plus avec un groupe sympathique, c’est une journée qui restera gravé dans sa mémoire avant qu’il ne reparte hier soir pour reprendre le cours de ses études. En vous réitérant mes remerciements, Meilleures salutations,
Hi Gilbert, I wanted to drop you and Cédric a thank you note. You have had a crazy patience with all my complicated wishes and you really helped making it happen. I really appreciated you help and it was a super great experience, something I will not forget. We felt extremely comfortable with your guidance and hopefully there will be a chance to go on another tour in the future. I am now officially addicted to the deep snow experience J. If you need a client statement from you on your website or anything, just let me know. Happy to do so. I can also post something on social media…. Cheers and thanks again!

Hi Gilbert, We are back home. We want to thank you once again. In our companies we are used to cooperate with profis and you are a real profesional. The last 3 days in Verbier were exciting, even demanding. Thank you very much and have a good and safe season!!!
Some times u meet people you call \"mentors\" in your work, or in your life. Very proud of the book of my friend and free-ride instructor for the last 8 years! In the book marked the steepest couloir I ever ride in my life (couloir d\'Arpette). Thank you Gilbert
