Jan, Feb, Mar
Type of Trip
Join me between January and March for some unique heli-skiing in the Caucasus around some of the highest peaks of Europe: Mount Elbrus (5642m) and Mount Kasbek (5033m).
The total skiing area is about 2000 square kilometers. An average vertical drop is 800m, the drops can be till 2000m. There is no restriction on landings. The skiing zone begins from 5 till 15 minutes from the hotel.
For the flights we use Eurocopter AS350B3e and Aerospatiale SA315B Lama, which enable skiing in little groups and getting into the most hard-to-reach places.
One guide will take up to 4 clients. One helicopter can operate with 3 groups at once, so the highest possible number of participants is 12.
All the guides have the international certificate IFMGA / UIAGM and know the skiing zone perfectly.
All the participants are given all the necessary avalanche equipment and are taught to use it.
To give you an idea on the price, it should cost around 6700€ per person for a 6-day package including the accommodation (4-star hotel), food, airport transfer, 14 hours of flight, the safety equipment (ABS airbag, avalanche transceiver, shovel and probe) and the mountain guiding assistance.
Feel free to contact me if you have any question and if you want to book a heli-skiing week with me. It will be my pleasure to bring you in the best skiing spots of this region that I know so well!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund.Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
The price is only an estimation.
