    Are you ready to experience some of the best runs in the Italian and Swiss Alps? So don’t miss these guided heliski tours!

    The varied and steep terrains of the Alps offer something especial for everyone, something you won’t find in any other place of the world. The Italian and Swiss Alps will make you fall in love with its high peaks, amazing glaciers and the most stunning vertical drops.

    The main reasons why I’d like to take my clients and friends to the Italian and Swiss Alps are the following:

    • A helicopter flight over this region is a really magical experience;
    • You will have the opportunity to ski on high mountain terrains;
    • The best vertical drop awaits;
    • Ski from the Monte Rosa and the Mont Blanc Massif, the highest mountains of the Alps!

    These heliski tours in the Italian and Swiss Alps offer many different options according to the landscape and challenge you are looking for. You will need a basic technical knowledge of backcountry and off-piste skiing. Prior experience in mountaineering is a plus and a good physical fitness is mandatory.

    Finally, let me share with you some of the spots we can overfly and ski, both in the Italian and Swiss Alps.

    About the Guide

     
     

    IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide

    I am a professional mountain & ski guide. I have been guiding now since 1994. I have always been into the mountains – skiing at age 4 and secretly sneaking away for overnight bivouacs in the mountains behind my parents house. At age 13, I decided to pursue my airy scrambles for something that looked a bit more fun. I went to work as an assistant bringing out other young teenagers on exciting hiking and more importantly to me, climbing outings. One thing led to another and before I knew it my world revolved around the mountains.

    At the age of 18 I moved to France to pursue my passions, later becoming actively involved with the French Alpine Club in Dijon and organizing outings and putting up climbing routes here and there in Burgundy.

    In 1992, I entered the infamous ENSA or French guides school in Chamonix and became the first American to receive international certification (UIAGM/IFMGA) through this prestigious school.

    Since then I have been making my living as a full time professional guide, climbing and skiing in many of the worlds great mountain ranges. I speak fluent French, some Italian and I am now learning German.

    Previously I have worked as a technical consultant for Petzl, and Grivel.

    If you are looking for a great adventure, skiing or climbing, please get in touch with and let's discuss about it.
