Heli Guides Training Course

21st of July, 2015

The 2015 Heli Guides Course is officially underway. The course offers training in all aspects of guiding, including industry rules and regulations, helicopter safety, rope rescue and field training, ski guiding, and more. Many NZ-trained guides hold key positions in heliski operations around the world including Canada, Russia, Greenland, and the Himalayas. Our multi-faceted course offers various opportunities for trainees to gain experience and provides a strong base from which to build a strong heliski guiding career. Keep checking the blog for photos and videos from this year's course! 

Day 2 of the course was conducted at the hangar, where trainees practiced giving safety briefings.

There were great weather conditions for Day 3 -- rope rescue training!

A few of our current guides joined in to review rescue techniques.
