Our heliski operation is based in a ski area of Arkhyz. It is one of the most favourable heli-skiing areas in Russia, located at the border of three mountainous regions: Central Caucasus - Abkhazia - Western Caucasus, where the area brings together a diverse landscape, abundant precipitations and a lasting season (from mid-December to April), also a mild climate and considerable heights (the highest mountains are Pshish (3780 m), Sophia (3640 m), Amanauz-Bashi (3530 m). There are various slopes with a height difference of up to 1350 meters.

We work with professional mountain guides, having had many years of experience in different corners of the world. We fly with the best pilots, having passed a special mountain training. The helicopters are Lama, AS350 B3 by Eurocopter.
