Highlights

 
     

    This 1-day heliskiing trip in Verbier starts from le Châble or La Croix de Coeur. The alpine and prestigious peaks offer us magnificent deep powder ski runs throughout the winter and spring.

    We will choose the exact itinerary of the day in the morning or even during the flight, to make sure we go where the snow and weather conditions are the best.

    We will go to one of these destination: Rosablanche (3336m), le Petit Combin (3663m) or le Plateau du Trient (3315m), the best spots in Valais for heliskiing and unique freeride sessions.

    I will organize your day according to your whishes, the place you stay and depending on the availability of the helicopter company.

    A typical day starts at 8.30 am with a briefing and a good cup of coffee. We check the equipment we take off around 9.30 am from Châble or la Croix de Coeur.

    Feel free to contact me if you plan to come to le Valais and wish to organize one or several days far from the crowd, into an unique mountains environment, full of powder snow and awesome ski runs.

    About the Guide

     
     

    Attracted by the mountains since childhood, I started with climbing and alpinism. I then discovered my passion for ski touring.
    I started a Young&Sport instructor training to lead young people in the mountain, accompanied by guides. This experience inspired me to become a mountain guide, and I got certified in September 2015.
    I work in a guide's office with other guides friends as Stéphane, Raphael, Christian and Jean-Luc, mountain leader.
    What I love the most: make people enjoy, allow them to discover a region, laughing, everything in a safe way.
    So if there's something you wish, if you dream of exploring a region or country, don't hesitate to contact me.
    See you soon for new discoveries!

    We discovered a great and safe touring trip at back Montfort via a small ascent on the “Mont Calme” with our guide Yann. We had great powder and great fun and felt very safe thanks to the experience of our guide Yann. Do not hesitate to hire him!

    Just back from an amazing powder skiing day with Yann in the Valais. Loads of nice turns in the powder in a breathtaking landscape. Full of energy, Yann is very professional & safe and at the same time relaxed & fun. We had a great time!
