    Let me guide you on a full-week of private heliskiing in Ayder, Turkey. An ideal trip for those who want to experience the essence of heliskiing!

    With more than 4,000 square kilometers of available ski area, you will get to ski wherever you want because the helicopter can take you to any part of that area. Group of 1 to 3 people will get 6 hours of helicopter time, whereas groups of 4-12 people will get 9 hours.

    Not only will you have a helicopter at your disposal for an entire week, you will also have the chance to spend one or more nights in a remote village on the other side of the Kackar Mountain Range, adding some extra adventure to this trip.

    You will also be more than comfortable in the Hasimoglu Hotel. Inside, there is the Turkey Heliski Lounge, where guests can relax and watch movies on a big screen TV. There is also a fitness area with a gym, jacuzzi and sauna. There is a game room and two massage rooms available all day. Finally, there is also the Turkish Hammam just 2 minutes away that has 45 degree natural hot spring water.

    Would you like to join this unforgettable week of private Heliskiing in the Kackar mountains in Ayder? Send me a request! You will have so much privacy, you will feel like the slopes are just for you, like a beautiful, soft, white carpet.

    And if are looking for a more social version of this trip, you can also join me for a Group Heliskiing Guided Week here.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I'm a IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide from Verbier in Valais. For the past 15 years I have been working in most of the heliski bases around the globe. For the moment, I'm focusing on Val d'Aran in the Pyrenees and Ayder and Ayladar in Turkey. I'm guiding there with a team of IFMGA guides. If I'm busy when you try to book a heliski day or tour, you'll be skiing with one of them. Join us and experience amazing skiing in less classic destinations!

    What People are Saying about Thierry Gasser

     

    Nice team, very well organized (hotels, transfers, helicopter), good safety management, although there was not as much snow as usual, the guides made the extra effort to find the perfect spots and conditions and succeeded. This a was a great week, I came alone and joined a fantastic group.
