About the Heliski trips in Verbier

The Academy has teamed up with Swiss I.F.M.G.A Mountain Guides to create an experience not to be missed. Many people find the thought of heli skiing exciting but daunting and haven’t gone because they have the misconception that it is for the expert skier, when really there are many routes for most levels.

The only difference with heli skiing is that there are no other skiers around, no chair lifts and fresh snow!  However we have had many people say that they would have much more confidence if they had Warren alongside them. Therefore we have now introduced this idea. Warren is at hand to give confidence and coaching on the trip helping you use the correct technique for the terrain making the experience both memorable and fun.
