Type of Trip
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.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

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!
