Heli-skiing Safety Precautions
1. Make sure you have booked with a Reputable heli-skiing operator; ask regarding the safety and training procedures and if they hold a third-party liability policy - try Heli Guides for trips in Europe, USA, Alaska - HeliskiUS and Canada, British Columbia - Lastfrontier
2. Ensure the reputable heli-ski company runs through a Morning briefing that includes avalanche awareness, weather forecasting, and a check of your safety gear.
3. Get avalanche safety gear - when heli-skiing, you will be taken to the top of the hill and left to ski down, typically with a guide; make sure you have a working Avalanche Airbag, Transceiver, Shovel and Probe.
4. Be aware of the risks; during heli-skiing, you will face a lot of hazards on the way down. Be mindful of your surroundings and ask the guides questions about the planned routes.
5. Len to your Guide at all times; they know the terrain and have likely done the route 100 times; listen to their instructions and follow their lead.
Each Heli Skiing trip usually includes some time looking at the mountain terrain, often in a remote resort area. Some Heli Skiing trips can involve staying overnight in cabins or luxurious chalets.
You will most certainly be with a Guide, and they will have experience with the terrain.
Safety Equipment, such as an Avalanche Transceiver or other Ski Safety Equipment, is also a good idea. This item, as well as many others, can be purchased at our website: www.snowsafe.co.uk
