Highland Abkhazia is one of the best places for Heliskiing in the Caucasus: a huge territory, varied terrain, great snow! Here you will find everything – from wide endless fields to excellent tree skiing or steep couloirs. Finally you will explore the amazing untouched nature of Western Caucasus!

The helipad is located in Abkhazia, a 10-minute drive from the Russian border in the Abaata Hotel. The transfer from Krasnaya Polyana to the helipad takes approximately 1 hour. From the Olympic Park 30 minutes.

We highly recommend you to stay at the Abaata Hotel  the night before skiing! This will allow us to fly to the mountains earlier, which is important, because in the mountains of Abkhazia the weather may go bad by noon, due to the proximity of the Black Sea. The hotel is very comfortable, there is a park on the territory, a heated pool, a bathhouse, a beach and a restaurant with European and national cuisine.

Refund

We guarantee a 100% refund or transfer of the program to other dates in case of force majeure circumstances. These include natural disasters, civil unrest, epidemics, decisions of public authorities that make it impossible to carry out our program.

In case the ABS system is activated outside the situation of the avalanche danger the payment is 15.000 RUR.

The reason for non-departure can be: non-flying weather, high avalanche danger, administrative reasons that are not dependent on the organizing company (for example, a flight ban). In case that such circumstances became known before the departure to the mountains, but after the group arrived to the helipad, the heliski organizing company will charge compensation in the amount of 10.000 RUR per person.

In case of non-departure for the reasons, depending on the organizing company (shortage of customers in the group, helicopter unavailability, etc.), we guarantee, at the request of the customer, a 100% refund.

Refunds are not made due to the inability to ski for the following reasons:
– illness or injury received both before and during the program;
– the impossibility of skiing due to fatigue;
– unwillingness or impossibility for the client to ride due to bad weather conditions or severe snow conditions (in the condition that safe skiing is possible on this day);

According to the decision of the guide, the participant can be removed from skiing if the level of his technical or physical training does not match the other group members – the participant significantly “slows down” the group, creates a danger to himself or other group members. In this case, the organizing company does not make any compensation.
