    Ayder is a resort located in the Rize province of northeast Turkey. This lovely area full of green becomes unbelievably charming in the winter. Enjoy the wonderful experience of taking a helicopter and going downhill on your snowboard across this area on this heliboarding tour in Ayder.

    About the 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!

    What People are Saying about Thierry Gasser


    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.
