Description

I want you to join me for a week of heliskiing in Krasnaya Polyana in Russia.

West of the Caucasus, on the Black Sea coast, and less than 70 kilometers away from Sochi, the small village of Krasnaya Polyana is a perfect winter getaway. While it is much smaller than Sochi, and has less tourists, this village has all of the same advantages. Some of the highlights include, fresh powder, comfortable climate, beautiful scenery, and several 3000 meter peaks to gaze at. There is so much to see and do here that a week might not be enough!

Made famous because of the 2014 Winter Olympics, the Sochi area is a skiing paradise. It is also worth mentioning that during those Olympics Krasnaya Polyana was home to many skiing events. However, the focus of this trip won’t be so much about the resort skiing, unless weather dictates otherwise. And in those cases, skiing at resorts such as Gornaya Karusel, Laura, Alpika-servis and Rosa Khutor isn’t a bad alternative. But, if the weather is on our side, you will have access to a helicopter that will take you to the more inaccessible parts of the region. The goal will be to find unskied areas that you can enjoy to your heart’s content. And because this is a week long trip, you will get to enjoy a different area every day.

Also, if the weather continues to smile upon us, there is the option for a 2-day getaway in the Arkhyz mountain area. Once there, you will get to spend a night in the Gorbachev dacha.

Contact me if you are interested in this week long heliskiing trip in Krasnaya Polyana. I know you won’t regret it.

And if you want to ski in another part of Russia, I can guide you on another heliskiing trip in Katchatka, Siberia.

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.
