Possible changes to the itinerary
The programme outlined above will be followed whenever possible. However, it may be necessary to modify this programme before departure or during your holiday for reasons beyond our control, such as poor weather, dangerous snow conditions, the political situation, flying conditions, flight delays, etc.
A heli-skiing trip is an adventure in which not everything can be foreseen. Despite the care we take in preparing your trip and our extensive knowledge of the country and terrain, we can encounter difficulties. Heliski Russia will always do its best to make your trip unforgettable, but we must also ensure your safety. We will do everything we can to make sure you have a successful holiday and that you go home full of fantastic memories and the desire to ski with us again.
Unlike classic heli-ski companies, who bill flying time based on the vertical descent skied, we base our calculations on the actual amount of flying time. This method is not only more transparent and more in line with the true cost, it gives us the opportunity to adapt our programme to conditions and therefore explore the best areas in which to ski.
Hence, a good day will give us 7000 to 10,000 metres of vertical drop for around 2½ hours of flying time. The flying time indicated for each package is the average achieved on each trip. When the weather prevents us from flying all these hours, we will reimburse you the hours we do not fly.
While it boasts no ostentatious luxury, the lodge is very well equipped, offering a high standard of comfort to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
Behind the log walls of the Wood & Thermal, you’ll find a spacious dining room, a lounge where you can enjoy a drink at the end of the day and also a sauna, gym, billiard room and projection room.
Outside, there is a heated swimming pool and a barbe- cue area.
Not to mention the heliport … yes right there! in the garden !
Breakfast and dinner are taken at the lodge.
Meals are varied and based round mostly local products (sea food, salmon, soups, etc.), together with vegetables and dairy products.
On ski days we provide picnic lunches based round Kamchatka specialties. We also provide snacks (energy bars, etc.).
On down days, lunches will be taken at the Lodge.
Bottles of water will be available in the helicopter throughout the day.
