Hitch a ride on a helicopter and get dropped off into the vast backcountry of Georgia, where thick blankets of fresh powder form exciting runs on challenging and intermediate slopes. Despite its wild beauty, much of the skiing community is focussed on the mountains of the Alps in the west of Europe, while the stunning mountains of Georgia lie largely untouched, presenting vast swathes of isolated slopes and picturesque peaks. Visit during the months between January and March for ideal heliskiing conditions.
Located in the Caucasus region in Eurasia, lying between Europe and Asia, the country of Georgia is an important area at the crossroads of various cultures. It is bordered to the north by Russia, to the southeast by Azerbaijan, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the west by the Black Sea. After an early period of unification, the borders of Georgia passed through the hands of various regional powers, including the Mongols, the Ottoman Empire, Iran and Russia.
The climate of Georgia is diverse, influenced by subtropical trends from the west, and continental trends from the east. Once reaching over 2,000 meters, alpine conditions predominate with year-round snow.
