Description

My team of 3 IFMGA mountain guides works in the Greater Caucasus. This is the principal mountain range in Caucasus Mountains. Our base is in Gudauri, which is a renowned ski resort. In fact, it’s amongst the most famous in Georgia. And it’s just 120 km from the International Airport Tbilisi.

The heliski area is around Mount Kazbek (5047 m). Moreover, it extends over many subranges in Georgia. We can access 2000 square km of incredible mountain landscape. For example, there are high towering peaks, deep valleys and large alpine bowls.

There is so much to choose from in terms of terrain! The different types of runs and levels of steepness can accommodate all levels. It does not matter whether you are a first time heliskier or an expert freerider. We will find your ideal playground!

Many of the landings are over 3000 m. The highest is up to 4200 m. Or, if the weather and snow conditions in the higher areas are not suitable, we go to lower areas where we can also find excellent slopes. These runs end as low as 1200 m in the bottom of the valleys.

On average, in a 1-day program you ski or ride around 3000 vertical m. And on a several days program, the average is 4800 m per day.

I offer you here a 3-day classic package, which has an all-inclusive heliski experience. Indeed, it’s an unforgettable adventure of snowboarding or powder skiing. In fact, this outstanding mountain holiday is a perfect opportunity to discover the fascinating traditions of Georgia.

Does tasting the Georgian powder snow sound interesting? Then please contact me and let’s organise an unforgettable ski trip together!

Disclaimer

The price includes 12,500 vertical metres of skiing, with applicable refund based on 9,000 guaranteed vertical metres if weather conditions or other impediment preclude safe flying and skiing. <br> 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).

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!
