Safe journeys, everyone!

At Summit Heliskiing, we have from the start focused on ensuring safety and professionalism in our heli ski operations. We supported the development of professional standards, education and certification of local ski guides, and one aspect of this is building connections and networks within the industry To this end we proudly announce our affiliate membership of Helicat Canada.

HeliCat Canada is „dedicated to developing and holding its members accountable to the highest operating standards in the industry; to supporting research programs that will better our land use practices; to educating ourselves and the public about current trends in safety and risk management; and to promoting the continual improvement of the helicopter and snowcat skiing industry.“ As affiliate members, we aim to learn from their expertise and knowledge, providing our heli ski clients with the peace of mind that their adventure is in capable and secure hands.

Supporting professional standards for Icelandic ski guides

We supported the certification of the first Mountain Guide Graduates and the first AIMG ski guides this spring, and were honored to subsequently host the renowned Colin Zacharias, as he oversaw our heli ski guide training and reviewed our systems. Our wonderful all-Icelandic ski guide team boasts four of the five first certified AIMG ski guides, and both of the first experienced mountaineers who graduated the Mountain Guide program.
