THE ULTIMATE HELI-SKIING ADVENTURE
Since 2004, Kamchatka Heliski Team have shared their love for skiing and wide-open spaces by organising holidays for all those who are passionate about skiing. The Team, which pioneered heli-skiing trips to Kamchatka, came together thanks to a chance meeting between two insatiable skier-adventurers: Marco GAIANI, who holds the reins at Heliski Russia, and Nikolay VESELOVSKIY, at Vertikalny Mir.
Their motto? Never stop skiing!
WHERE SKIING IS A DIFFERENT WORLD…
Virgin wilderness, perfect powder and breathtaking scenery… Kamchatka is all that and more, every skier’s dream. Heliski Russia makes this dream come true by offering outstanding ski trips with high-quality services.
Working in association with the Russian company Vertikalny Mir, nothing is left to chance; each trip’s logistics are organised down to the smallest detail to ensure your holiday is pure pleasure.
After 23 years of heli-skiing around the world, Kamchatka is still my favourite destination. Conscientious organisers, pilots with long experience of flying in the mountains and the chance to ski unique volcanic terrain on the edge of the North Pacific, are just some of the reasons for working with Heliski Russia.
Kamchatka is quite simply the most unique heli-ski experience in the world. Steep and varied terrain, exceptionally long descents and great snow – it has everything. Descents that finish beside the sea, volcanoes venting their steam and hot springs… The trips organised by Heliski Russia are truly out of this world.
Heliski Russia and Kamchatka make for a trip of a lifetime; one you would love to repeat each and every winter. The best heli-skiing experience ever with exhilarating descents surrounded by a dramatic wilderness of ice and fire. Very hard to beat… You’ve got to go!
