Kamchatka Heli Skiing Adventure

© Photo by Max Baloo

Just imagine it. You’re flying high above the untamed peaks of the Kamchatka Peninsula in a Russian chopper. Suited up. Skis or board at the ready.

Kamchatka Heli skiing tour take takes you to soaring ridges blanketed in untouched deep powder snow, and the majestic volcanoes of the Pacific Rim of Fire in all their white winter splendour. Your helicopter touches down in the middle of nowhere – the summit of a towering and very-much-alive volcano. The Mi-8 helicopter is the ultimate chairlift, and the volcanic slopes of Kamchatka are the ultimate freeride. As the chopper disappears from view, the sense of isolation, and the sheer silence of the mountains is profound. Take a moment to meditate on exactly where you are – one of the wildest, most remote places on earth – then take a deep breath and away you go. This is pure freedom!

This incredible tour includes 4 full days (weather permitting) of heli-skiing with a total drop of approximately 15,000 vertical feet. Depending on conditions, possible locations include Viluchinsky (2,173 m), Avachinsky (2,741m), Mutnovsky (2,322 m) and Zhupanovsky (2,923 m). The program also includes a wide choice of optional experiences such as husky dog sledding, snowmobiling, hiking and hot spring bathing.
