Description

THE NEW RUSSIAN DREAM… Krasnaya Polyana is a small village located about 65 km from Sochi. This small village found itself under the spotlight in 2014 as it hosted the ski competitions for Winter Olympics. Sochi ski resort is often called the “Russian Courchevel”. It benefits from an ideal location with a time difference of only 2 hours with Europe and the nearby Adler airport, making it easily accessible.

SKI THE HEART OF EURASIA
The area of Krasnaya Polyana is located at the western end of the Caucasus, on the Black Sea coast and is surrounded by peaks over 3000 meters high.

My priority is to make you discover unskied and endlessly varied runs heliskiing but in case of bad weather, the fallbacks are sure… Real touristic complex Krasnaya Polyana has 4 separate resorts: Gornaya Karusel, Laura, Alpika-Servis and Rosa Khutor.

If the weather enables it, a two-day getaway in the Arkhyz mountain area, on the west side of the Elbrus range is an option, spending a night at the Gorbachev dacha (one of the secondary residences that belonged to Mikhail Gorbachev). With so many things to offer, the region would almost give the heebie-jeebies!

KRASNAYA POLYANA GETS EACH YEAR GENEROUS AMOUNTS OF POWDER FROM DECEMBER TO MARCH. A MILD CLIMATE, BEAUTIFUL SCENERY AND SLOPES OF ANY ORIENTATION AND ANY DIFFICULTY TOP UP THIS UNIQUE HELISKIING DESTINATION. I OFFER THREE DIFFERENT PACKAGES, EACH OF FIVE DAYS TO SATISFY ALL LEVELS AND INTERESTS.

Here is the program I propose:

SUNDAY
Morning: Flight from Paris, Geneva or Moscow, arrival at Adler-Sotchi airport. A guide of our team will welcome you. Then transfer to the hotel
in our private bus, about 30 minutes drive. Check in at the hotel, welcome drink and lunch.

MONDAY TO SATURDAY
On the first morning, security information and procedures around the helicopter and then heliskiing.

SATURDAY
Transfer to Adler-Sotchi airport. Flight back.

IN CASE OF BAD WEATHER
In case of bad weather not allowing the helicopter takeoff, it will be possible to discover the ski resort of Krasnaya Polyana, which offers beautiful routes in the heart of beech forests.

Please get in touch with me if you are looking for the skiing trip of your life 😉 It will be my pleasure to guide you here and make sure you come back home with unforgettable memories.
