Description

Join me for this fantastic 7-day heliskiing trip to the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia’s Far East!

Kamchatka is a volcanic peninsula in the east of Siberia, stretching toward the Pacific Ocean. Due to its unlimited and untouched slopes, it is considered a winter paradise.

This “Fire and Ice” programme is the perfect option for a first heliskiing experience in Kamchatka. We will ski on different slopes every day, with the possibility of exploring almost 15000 km2. In the evening, we return to our comfortable and cozy hotel. In the evenings, you can either eat at the hotel or go out to discover different restaurants in Elizovo.

This magnificent region was a forbidden military zone for a long time and didn’t appear on any maps. It wasn’t until the 1990’s that it became possible to access this wild territory, which is now classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

During this trip, we’ll discover this exceptional land of fjords and volcanoes that have descents of up to 3000 metres! You’ll have the chance to explore a landscape full of geysers and thermal springs.

This will be much more than just a heliskiing experience, it is a real journey! Imagine volcanoes, the beach, a rich and wild fauna…all this awaits you at the end of this volcanic peninsula.

I strongly recommend this exciting heliskiing trip to Kamchatka. My aim is to provide you the best conditions throughout the trip. Thus giving you total satisfaction. But above all, I guarantee you the highest level of safety.

Please send me a request if you wish to come to this amazing place. I fell in love with Kamchatka the second I saw it and now I spend several months here every year. It will be my pleasure to be your guide and ensure you have the time of your life over 7 extraordinary days!

If you want to explore more of Russia, I can also take you heliskiing in Krasnaya Polyana.

Accommodation

7 nights in hotel *** in double room (possibility of single room with supplement)

Disclaimer

The above program is given as an indication and remains feasible as it is ideally. It can be adapted, before your departure or during your stay, due to imperatives beyond our control: weather and snow conditions, political situation, aerial rotations, air delays, etc.

More info

We take 1 group of 12 people by helicopter MI-8, with 8 hours of flight (about 25 000 meters). This stay is ideal for a first experience of heliskiing in Kamchatka. On the program: different slopes every day, almost 15 000 Km ² to explore and each evening return to the same hotel. Helicopters: The helicopters we use are 'MI-8 biturbine', the most popular model in the world, renowned for their power and reliability. They are chartered from a private company, Kamchatka Airlines, who guarantee the upkeep and maintenance of these helicopters in line with International standards. The flight team, for this 20 passenger helicopter is made up of two pilots and a flight engineer. Our pilots have many years experience flying in the mountains and have been working with us for many years. They have proven their capabilities on numerous flights and have shown their aptitude for taking wise decisions in uncertain weather conditions. Flight time: In contrast to other Heli-ski companies who base their flight time on the vertical meters skied, we prefer to base our calculations on actual flight time. Not only is this method better for you, closer to the reality of the costs, but it also allows us freedom to adapt our program depending on conditions, giving us the possibility to explore the best sites. So a good day will give you 7000 to 10000 meters of vertical descent for around 2h30 of flight time! The flight time allocated for each trip is based on the average number of hours used throughout each trip during the season. If the weather conditions do not allow you to use all these hours, we will reimburse them to you.

About the guide

guide profile img

I have been a mountain guide for almost 20 years. But I'm not only a guide...
The mountain is the thread of my life. I am a member of the Chamonix Guides Company, ski instructor and teacher for many years at ENSA (National School of Ski and Alpinism), I am very experienced in the mountains. My experience is multifaceted since I partake in varied projects, as a trainer and first aider at the Chamoniarde de Secours (an association that contributes to the development of mountain safety and to promote alpine environment knowledge), technical supervisor of the freeride competitions organization, or safety advisor and rider in several freeride videos.
My favorite?... The Kamchatka, heliski's promised land. In 2005 I created a heliski agency in Russia, to share my passion organizing exceptional ski journeys.
