FAQs: Heliskiing and Catskiing in Albania

What should I know about Heliskiing and Catskiing Albania?

Albania is a beautiful country of wild and rugged terrain. The undeveloped landscape is home to mountains and forests, with elevations high enough for substantial snowfall in the winter. This is a recipe for greatness as far as skiing is concerned. Many heliskiing programs offer rides to the snowiest regions, taking advantage of the premium powder that falls from the storms of the Adriatic Sea.

The Pindus Mountains towards the southern areas of the country offer additional spots for quality skiing. Because of its rugged terrain, a high fitness level and skiing proficiency are necessary to ski safely and comfortably.

Why should I choose Albania for my Heliskiing and Catskiing adventure?

Massive Snowfall!

From about mid-November to March, the threat of snow keeps powder hounds on the look out for scenic and solitary runs in Albania. When it snows, hitting the mostly-craggy landscape is a ski dream come true, because the deep snow pack remains untouched. Dropping onto the most hard to reach places all but guarantees you will have exclusive access to the most delectable pockets of powder in this Balkan wonderland.

Variety of Runs!

Its vast countryside and oft-forgotten mountain ranges leave a landscape of diverse and natural obstacles. Gorgeous tree-lined runs, steep drop-ins on thin ridges, open glades that slide down for miles.... you get the idea. For heliskiers who can't decide which feature of skiable terrain they like best, this will cure your indecisive mind. Albania has a never-ending wealth of natural objectives, so you don't have to build your heliskiing trip around much more than the territory.

Happy Solitude!

Chances are you don't like waiting in lines, be it for the best resort runs or the queue for the chopper. Heliskiing in the Dinaric Alps and other Albanian territory ensure you will have premium access in a serene environment, from flora and fauna to untouched powder. No sharing lifts all day. No skiing through slush. Heliskiing in Albania means nothing but the finest ski conditions for as long as you want them. And, of course, without the crowds.
