Description

Welcome to the best Heliskiing program of Switzerland: a guided and private heliski tour flying over Verbier, in the Canton del Valais. And, of course, skiing down among the wildest and untracked paths of Petit Combin, Trient and Rosablanche.

Let me tell you I come from a family of mountain guides here in Switzerland and I know the Verbier region better than anyone else. Therefore, I have planned this fun and unique 1-day trip where you can enjoy extreme skiing or just a quiet alpine tour.

Once we get to Verbier’s highest point by helicopter you’ll need to be ready for an amazing run back down! You won’t believe those pristine backcountry bowls in the middle of ice-falls and granite cliffs. It will be really exciting, I can assure that!

Are you wondering about the ski level? I am pleased to tell you that it’s not a problem. According to your backcountry experience and physical training I will get the perfect heli-ski run for you.

So, all you have to do now is to get in touch with me. It will be an honor to lead this program in a place I love so much. Do not hesitate to ask me all your doubts. Together we’ll plan an unforgettable heliski experience in Verbier**. Contact me now!**

I have been the owner of the mountain guide office since 2004. My father was a mountain guide and I grew up in the Val d’ Hérens. I live now for many years in Verbier. I graduated from the l'école hôtelière de Lausanne in 1993 and then began my mountain guide training. Well travelled I have guided through the mountains of the Andes, the Himalayas, Alaska, Turkey and Greenland. I'm also a Swiss Snow Sports graduate and a dual paragliding pilot.

Olivier our guide was excellent and we would use him again. Unfortunately, we didn't do any Backcountry skiing due to the poor and dangerous conditions. I think Explore-Share should have been more proactive in keeping us informed of the conditions and the fact that it didn't allow for backcountry skiing; we forfeited a day with our guide given the conditions were so bad and the only option was to ski on piste. Further, I would have expected Explore-Share to advise us of the extra cost of the avalanche gear (an extra 600 francs) in advance.
