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!
