The aircraft are flown exclusively by pilots with extensive alpine experience, and our technicians guarantee the perfect maintenance of the helicopters, this guarantees you the highest possible standard of safety.
Where is Gudauri/Kazbegi?
Gudauri is the biggest ski resort in the Georgian Republic in the Caucasus mountains. It is located on the „Cross-pass“ approximately 100 km in the north of the capital, Tbilisi, at the junction between Europe and Asia. The Caucasus mountains stretch over 1100 km across between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea with some volcanos such as the Elbrus (5642 m) and the Kazbek (5047 m).
These mountains offer you a breathtaking panorama around the heliski area.
The amount we ski can vary from day to day, depending on weather and snow conditions, skiing ability and fitness of the groups.
