Our team assures to make your stay in the wild mountains as safe as possible. Every participant will obtain obligatory avalanche equipment (avalanche backpacks, transceivers, shovels, probes). Before setting off the guides will instruct the participants of how to act on the slopes (avalanche safety training). Every helicopter is equipped with a first-aid kit which also has necessary equipment for transportation if injured. The connection between the guides, pilots and “earth” is obtained by using radios and satellite phones.
Reference: The Association of Mountain Guides of Russia was founded in 2008 with the aim of training Russian mountain guides in accordance with international standards. The Canadian Association of Mountain Guides, which has a wealth of experience in training guides, including for its own, the world's largest, heli ski industry, was involved in training domestic specialists.
As the students studied, they completed multi-day courses in mountaineering training for ski guides, first aid, avalanche training (with a certificate from the Canadian Avalanche Association), two ski tour courses, and an examination course. All courses were conducted under the guidance and in accordance with the methods and requirements of the Canadian Association.
