"Total safety doesn't exist in the mountains."

Therefore, the best way to enjoy your experiences is to be accompanied by professionals. We only work with well known professionals.

Our guides are all professionals and IFMGA qualified (International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations).

Our ski instructors are all IASS (International Ski Instructors Association) qualified. In addition to these qualifications, all our instructors and guides have avalanche and first aid training.

Your guide, ski instructor or mountain leader is the only one responsible for choosing the itinerary routes that you use. He will take in to account your wishes and adapt them to the conditions and the terrain.

The helicopter company, Air Glaciers, is the second largest in Switzerland. Apart from providing private transport, its main activity is mountain rescue and the transportation of materials for large-scale building work in the mountains.

Renowned for having the best pilots in the field, they have numerous employees who are both guides and helicopter pilots.

Working closely with the avalanche research centre, our guides are continually checking the avalanche danger information database. They decide on the itinerary according to this information.

All our clients are provided with safety equipment; this will include an avalanche transceiver, a shovel and a probe. Clients will receive a brief safety talk on the subject and further to this all guides will be equipped with a first aid kit and a radio transmitter.

For safety reasons, we would ask that our clients arrive in good health and are insured in case of accidents or illness. You should have private third party insurance as well as insurance that includes repatriation in the event of an accident (this should include helicopter rescue). Should you need any assistance organising insurance we will be happy to help.
