Mountain Guide

I'm a IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide from Verbier in Valais. For the past 15 years I have been working in most of the heliski bases around the globe. For the moment, I'm focusing on Val d'Aran in the Pyrenees and Ayder and Ayladar in Turkey. I'm guiding there with a team of IFMGA guides. If I'm busy when you try to book a heliski day or tour, you'll be skiing with one of them. Join us and experience amazing skiing in less classic destinations!

The best team in the world



Nice team, very well organized (hotels, transfers, helicopter), good safety management, although there was not as much snow as usual, the guides made the extra effort to find the perfect spots and conditions and succeeded. This a was a great week, I came alone and joined a fantastic group.
