Description

Are you looking for an unforgettable heliskiing experience? Then this trip is for you! Spend a week exploring the most amazing powder areas of Prokletije, in Eastern Europe.

Also known as the Albanian Alps or the Accursed Mountains, Prokletije is a mountain range that belongs to the Dinaric Alps. It is located in the western Balkans, extending from northern Albania to Kosovo and eastern Montenegro.

This is one of the snowiest and most unexplored areas in the entire Europe. Its steep slopes are covered with top-quality powder snow and surrounded by beautiful lakes, rivers, and valleys, and the southernmost glaciers in the continent.

On this week trip (6 days of skiing) our base will be the Valbona Valley. Each day, after a 6 to 10 minute heli-flight, we will reach an awesome different spot. A large expanse of untracked terrain awaits us, we will enjoy drops of 400 to 1600 vertical meters! 

This tour is based on 4 hours of total flying timeIf you are one person or a group of four or less, we will share the heli with other groups with a similar skiing level. However, if you are more than four, you can ask for a private trip. Take a look at the extra information below!

About the guide

guide profile img

I grew up in Slovenia with Julian Alps as my backyard. Expeditions to Himalaya started when I was 17, started steep skiing at 15, climbing big walls at 13 and it was a natural progression to BASE jump and to become a mountain guide- a job that feeds my soul. I have been to several climbing expeditions to Peru, Kyrgyzstan, Tibet, Nepal and India.

I'm an IFMGA qualified mountain guide as well as an instructor for future guides, ski instructor, certified helicopter operator and a Heli Ski guide. Although my work took me all over the world my favorite place is still in the Julian Alps. Sharing the hidden places in my Home Mountains with my clients, guiding and teaching them to explore on their own is has been my biggest passion for the past few years.

Mountains are my passion. Winter or summer, climbing, flying through the air or skiing, it doesn't matter to me if I am guiding or having fun with friends. I simply get spaced out when I am in the mountains. Guiding for me is not a job - it is a state of mind and a lifestyle.
