You will find yourself in one of the most adventurous and scenic places in the world making your fresh powder turns. This is an old and historic world that benefits from being so close to Europe and the Black Sea.

Svanetia is situated on the southern slopes of the central Caucasus mountains and is surrounded by some 3,000–5,000 meter peaks.

Our playground and base is located in the village of Mestia (1500 meters), which has always been regarded as the chief community of Zemo, or Svaneti province. Despite its small size, the town-let was an important centre of Georgian culture for centuries and contains a number of medieval monuments, such as churches and forts, included in a list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Heliskiing here is unique for many reasons. You will have access to a tremendous large area (1500km2) with a variety of slopes and descents perfect for Heliskiing. The Northern and colder faces hold the most Powder with some incredible scenic settings that you’ll never forget.

This place is unique not only as a Heliski destination but also the chance to experience the culture and the food and wine. (Georgia is reputed to be the first place in the world to produce wine some 8.000 years ago).

On non-flying days (caused by bad weather) there are a number of resorts and lifts we can utilize to ski the tree runs and ensure skiing every day even in poor weather. There is some interesting Freeride terrain located within the small lift systems of Tetnuldi and Hatsvali. Tetnuldi has high Alpine lifts and is only 20min drive away and Hatsvali is located in our Village and is a tremendous place for Tree-skiing when the really big snow dumps are happening and the trees are needed to be able to see!
Mestia has been on the map for some years as the getaway mountain resort for many Georgians, but is considered as a fairly new Heli ski destination with only one operator until recently.

See the full process from the moment you give us a call to when you skiing down the beautiful snowy mountains of Georgia right here.

The terrain really has a great variety and interesting descents. You will find everything from High Alpine Glaciers to runs below tree line. You can expect descents of an incredible 1.800 meters!

Most of the slopes in Svanetia region are above the treeline. There is a variety of steepness and that can often be adapted to skill level in the group.

Safety first, so skiing in the most steep terrain will only take place when conditions allow it.

Our base is Posta Mestia located in the very heart of Mestia, this hotel offers its guests stylish and cozy rooms with views of the breathtaking Caucasus mountains. There is a super restaurant serving local cuisine and a bar that will hear many tales of the day’s adventures. Besides you will find a heated pool and sauna in the basement.

We will be using AS350B3 helicopter with a highly experienced local pilot and qualified GMGA Guide, this means 4 guests’ skiers or Boarders per Heli + the guide. There will be max 8 guest sharing two Helicopters. These are versatile machines and perfect for the terrain. We will aim to fly 5 days with a spare day included in the event of a down day. In the event that weather conditions prevent flying, we will opt for skiing at a nearby resort.

The highest mountain in Georgia, Mount Shkhara at 5.201 meters is located in the province. Other prominent peaks include Tetnuldi (4.974 meters), Shota Rustaveli (4.960 meters), Mount Ushba (4.710 meters), Ailama (4.525 meters), as well as many others.
