Safety

All guides are certified UIAGM mountain guides. HHSG will provide 2 guides per group of 6/8 people. The first guide will always go first and set a line for the clients to follow, afterwards each client will go down one by one. The second guide will go last. In this matter we can take best control of eventual slides occurring while skiing.

We will provide the standard heliski items for all clients. These items include Mammut avalanche airbag packs, avalanche detectors, probes, shovels, etc. In the case of an emergency rescue or accident, we will fly in a rescue team and or doctors immediately should the need arise.

Prior to the first Heliski run your guides will give you an orientation on how to operate the provided avalanche devices, if you brought your own they will synchronize your avalanche search device with ours.

For precaution reasons the chopper will carry onboard a fully stocked base camp, with tents, sleeping bags & insulate pads, food, stoves, drinks, satellite phone & laptop, etc.
