Your equipment:

  • Dress for a similar climate to the Alps
    The helicopters are heated and you can store some equipment inside.
    We recommend multi layer clothing and spare gloves and goggles. Due to high winds the wind-chill factor
    is often an important consideration, and we recommend extra protection for your face and the use of a helmet.
  • The skis
    (possibly equipped with a ski touring bindings and skins) should be selected for big turns on untracked slopes
    with varied snow conditions, from powder to crust and icy slope entrances (due to steam from active volcanoes).
  • Your ability
    Your should be comfortable with varied snow conditions, have good control in difficult snow conditions and have a good level of fitness since most of the runs are between 1000 to 2000 vertical meters in length.
