    Hervé, a guide who just loves winter...


    BEST  Hervé HELIGUIDE  CHILE 2011 (49)


    Hervé , working with us in winter and also in the ESF Courchevel 1850, spend all his summer in winter, in the other hemisphere and works there as heliski guide.
    A great experience, and a real  passion for ski and powder…

    What about following him ?


    Hervé, tell us how you discovered Andes range ,the ride over there, and the Heliski in South america ?


    l start my career in Chili on the Magellan detroit side where l stayed 3 winters with seawiew and a lot of wind.

    After that I went working in Portillo, in the middle of the Cordilleres, majestic  and magnificient!

    With deep valleys, steep runs, and sightview on the Aconcagua all day long.

    The Lama was bringing us for heliskiing around the laguna del Inca and sometimes farer  close to the Argentina boarder. Between 3800 m and 4200 m , we were above the glacier.

    When Valley Nevado's ski ressort bornt, I went working there, and we start the heliski there with some French friends.

    A Bell “ 407 “ was used as a cab between Santiago, the resort and the international airport, and we kidnap it to discover new valleys.

    At the beginning of the 90’s we were skiing just close to the resort and little by little  we opened new runs in the north, and now we are running hundred per cent in the Paraguire valleys, which is 14 minutes flight from the resort.

    Incredible runs, lot of snow. Very step on the first 600 /800 meters and then when the valleys become larger, there are runs till 2400 vertical meters.

    We are now at the top, working with the same team of heliski guides and 2 to 3 machines (B3 AS 350), with small groups of 4 pax.

    We also organize private charters.

    Despite all those years of experience, I continue to train myself.

    In 2006 l followed with the military high mountains school of Rio Blanco a course about glacier technics, on the Juncal Valleys ( 6400 m), the same year l also followed a 15 days training course with Cedomir Marangunic doctor of the Ohio University, snow greatest specialist in Chili.


    How is it a winter in summer ?


    Since 26 years, I ski two winter per year, just because I love my job and  I have an unbelievable quality of life.

    I enjoy the sun between my two seasons.


    -You have been skiing all over the world, why do you love that much the south face skiing ?


    The Andes are huge, very often we ski in untouched valleys, and everything around us is wild and unaccessible.

    l enjoy  this “adventure way of life”, every days.

    Condors are flying around us, huge rabbits run in front of us …The rocks are green and grey because of the copper inside and it gives magnificent colors to our mountains..

    South face protect our powder… I like it…


    - In concrete terms how does it work the heliski in a big capital?


    That's the last trend for our americain guests…The charm of a very attractive and civilized town after a skiing day in the Andes, makes a magic contrast.

    Amazing restaurants, a first class gastronomy, unbelievable Chilian wines, very friendly locals, in brief, getting out of a 5 stars hotel as the W, or the Ritz to take the trooper to reach the first peak  in less than half an hour. It’s simply exceptional…

    - You have been a pioneer of the heliski in South America, tell us about your bests runs


    I have been working with a private company in 2004, 2005 and open runs that nobody had never skied before, offered me great pleasure and incredible sensations…

    Very aerial landing on small ridges and beautiful pick up close to the turquoise lagoon ….
    The dream for a skihollic….

    - So when do we go there ?


    We start our activity at the end of June, and  stop at the end of September.

    Joint us! To discover the South American powder…Between 3700 m and 4500 m, a magic kind of snow, small groups, and a lot of turns…
