Mostly the area has no ski developments and many side valleys and mountains are seldom visited but have good landing places on high mountain passes, ridges and glaciers where it is possible to start descents. Then the helicopter takes the group to another location. On a good day it is possible to make about 6 trips like that. Your guide will select terrain within a zone according to snowfall, the weather, and your group's ability. Our guides are professionals, dedicated to safety and comradeship. We employ three guides for the program. The guides carry radio and can contact with the helicopter or the mountain rescue. They also carry emergency equipment.
We use the MI-8-MTB helicopters, which are known in many countries as good and reliable helicopters. It is powered by two turbo-engines and has a carrying capacity of two tons. It can carry a group of 15 skiers and boarders, depending on weight, plus the guides and the pilots. Two pilots fly the MI-8-MTB, which means extra safety. You can be sure that the helicopters are flown by very experienced pilots, who are very experienced in heli ski and mountain rescue flying.
