Description

Come with us on this challenging Greater Caucasus 6-day heliboarding trip!

During this  6-day heliboarding adventure, you’ll be exploring the amazing powder snow around Gudauri —Georgia’s most famous ski resort— with a team of three IFMGA mountain guides.  As the largest mountain range of the Caucasus Mountains, Greater Caucasus will be the perfect setting for heliboarding.

With the opportunity to also discover the surroundings of one of the major peaks in the Caucasus, Mount Kazbek (5,047 meters), skiers as well as snowboarders will enjoy this fascinating heliboarding adventure!

Experienced snowboarders as well as beginners will discover that there are  amazing runs here and depending on the weather and snow conditions, we’ll be able to choose between high areas (over 3000 meters) or lower runs. Keep in mind that we’ll be riding or skiing an average of 4800 meters per day. 

This heliboarding adventure will also be an amazing opportunity to discover Georgia’s traditions and fascinating culture. So if you are interested in joining us on this 6-day trip, don’t hesitate and request to book this trip!

Disclaimer

The price includes 29,000 vertical metres of skiing, with applicable refund based on 21,000 guaranteed vertical metres if weather conditions or other impediment preclude safe flying and skiing. In case weather conditions do not allow safe flying and we have to cancel the day, the following rules apply: I will try to reschedule your reservation to the next day, or if this is not possible, you will receive a refund for the deposit you paid with the following order: Multi-day package: the vertical metres you would have heli-skied that day will remain in your package; if you are unable to reach the guaranteed vertical by the end of your stay, you will then receive a refund for the unused metres (125 EUR per 1000 vertical metres unused). Decision to cancel the program is made in the morning of that particular day, once guides and pilots have carefully assessed the present weather and the weather forecast for the entire day. No refund will be given in whole or in part for unused days/runs/vertical meters/flying time within the package due to late arrival or early departure, sickness or injury, lack of fitness or poor skiing ability, etc.

About the guide

guide profile img

Our team gathers 3 IFMGA mountain guides whose main objective is to offer you quality heli-skiing and ski touring with European standards, in the Caucasus Mountains (Georgia).

Come and join us, away from the crowd, to experience something unique and truly exciting, exploring remote mountains and vast snowfields, setting foot on a high isolated peak and riding down spectacular slopes of virgin snow, getting "face shots" while soaring through deep powder...

The Greater Caucasus Range rises up as a majestic mountain landscape, between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. In its central part, ten peaks out rival the famous Mont Blanc in height. We have an extensive heli-ski area which encompasses over 2000 square kilometres.

Our team's commitment to safety and professionalism is paramount. We have chosen leading European helicopter companies to conduct our flights; they provide us with lightweight, powerful helicopters, and highly qualified pilots with extensive mountain flying experience. We are all internationally certified mountain guides with years of experience in heliskiing.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We would be delighted to let you discover our beautiful mountains and
guide you for some unforgettable experience in Georgia!
