Dear Skiers and Snowboarders,
welcome to one of the best Heliski spots!
In April 2018, when the snow falls with a bit higher temperatures and the sunlight effects the snowpack in a positive way, we will offer you a week, in which we will ski some of the steeper runs and terrain, if conditions allow it. The idea to offer a steep camp came up in April 2017 shooting some stunning film with some of the world best Freeskiers. One of them is Sam Anthamatten from Switzerland. Next to his highest level in skiing he is also a UIAGM Mountain Guide and will be with us during that week.
We are always in search for new and great Heliski destinations all around the globe. In 2008 we did a scout trip to an incredible place, which is not far away from central Europe. The place is called Svanetia, in the heart of the Caucasus Mountains on the Georgian territory. Unfortunately after our first trip to that region political instability made further trips almost impossible. Meanwhile the situation has gone back to normal, even several local projects are set up to increase tourism in the country. So the idea of heading back to the “pearl of Caucasus” and establish a Heliski destination here with highest standards in quality and safety came into our minds. Now in 2018 we will go into our fifth season in the incredible mountains of Svanetia. This is skiing at its best inbetween the highest peaks of Europe, rising more than 5000 meters into the sky. 1800 square kilometers of stunning skiing terrain is just ours. While we still ski dry and deep powder on the more than 30 kilometer long Layla Range, best spring corn can be skied on the almost endless runs below the looming peak of Ushba.
Svanetia is an unforgettable Heliski destination.
If you look for a very special Heliski experience in 2018, we are sure Heliski Svanetia will be your destination.
We are really looking forward to share with you some of the best skiing and an unforgettable time in beautiful Svanetia,
Yours Flory and the Heliski Guideteam
