All guides are certified by the Heli Ski US Association and adhere to its procedures and protocols.
All of our guides have extensive training in emergency care and most are certified EMTs. Every guide holds at very minimum an avalanche two card and has received extensive training in mountain safety, glacier travel, high mountain rescue techniques, and helicopter operations. Every guide at PNH has been trained by the foremost experts in the field.
PNH procedures for avalanche management include collecting weather data 365 days a year. Daily snow observations come from snow pit data collected by guides each day and shared through radio communication while in the mountains. Each day PNH has a pre and prior ski day meeting for its guide staff to compare notes and discuss what is happening in the field. It is important for our documentation to have all information from our guides.
Daily Guest Briefings
Each day guests go through an extensive safety briefing including the use of Avalanche transceivers and helicopter protocol. These briefings are for your insurance that you will be comfortable in the surroundings you are about to embark on.
