A great way warm up before one of our Heliski packages by meeting our guides, experiencing the sort of gradient terrain you are likely to expect and take on board some technique pointers. It also allows us to assess you ability level before the Heliski / reverse Heliski day so as we can match the terrain accordingly. Further, its a great way to see what your resort has to offer with the added safety and confidence that a professional brings.

“Heliski Preparation Half Day With UIAGM Mountain Guide Or Instructor”

  1. Hello, I am vacationing next week, staying in Meribel and am interested in the HELISKI PREPARATION HALF DAY WITH UIAGM MOUNTAIN GUIDE package. I have a few questions. First, is the course taught in English? Second, are there still spots available? I know your website says to keep all days open, but is there a way to reserve a specific day in advance (i.e. how many days/classes is this run)? Lastly, what is the typical itinerary, (i.e. if I’m staying in Meribel, what time can I expect to get back). Thank you for your help!
