More Info

Situated just south of Russia and north of Turkey, Armenia and Azerbaijan, Georgia is a small former Soviet Republic full of mountains. While most of the country’s backcountry skiing is found in the northern Caucasus Mountains, the country does have a few other, even more low-key spots as well.

On the county’s southern border with Turkey sit both Machakhela Planned National Park and Mtirala National Park. While neither one of these has mountains as talla s those in the Caucasus, they both boast astoundingly beautiful scenery and excellent backcountry skiing in the winter, perfect for beginners who are just getting used to the sport.

We went heli-skiing with the HELIKSIR PRO TEAM, it was just perfect, from the first minute we arrived, we felt the magic... Perfect welcome, perfect security briefing, perfect material (ABS, Bieper), very clean chopper, perfect runs....we came back with a huge smile on our faces ! I can warmly recommend the Heliski Caucasus - Heliksir Ltd team if you are in Georgia and want to discover the powder of the great Caucasus. Despite the lack of snow in the resort, we rode only pow !! You will go home with a beautiful experience !
