Ultimate snow experience for a skier or snowboarder
20 Jan 2016
Come and enjoy your heli-ski/boarding winter vacation in the heart of the Tien-Shan Mountains!
If you can ski, you can Heli-ski. You don't have to be an expert!
If you can ski intermediate runs at your ski area, then you can heli-ski with us on our heli-ski program. If you have ever dreamed of doing heli-ski in the mountains; have seen the movies of heli-skiing and doubted your ability to do it yourself – well, you can go heli-skiing or heli-boarding with us in Tien-Shan mountains where the powder snow is deep, the air is fresh and the experience exhilarating. Enjoy mountains over 4000 meters and spectacular views. Up to 1200 vertical meters of varied terrain includes glacier snowfields, ridges and cols. Mostly, the area has no ski developments and many side valleys and mountains are seldom visited but have good landing places on high mountain passes, ridges and glaciers where it is possible to start descents. Then the helicopter takes the group to another location. On a good day it is possible to make about 6 trips like that.
Heli-ski guides will select terrain within a zone according to snowfall, the weather, and your group's ability. Our guides are professionals, dedicated to safety and comradeship. We employ three guides for the program. The guides carry radio and can contact with the helicopter or the mountain rescue. They also carry emergency equipment.
We use the MI-8-MTB helicopters, which are known in many countries as good and reliable helicopters. It is powered by two turbo-engines and has a carrying capacity of two tons. It can carry a group of 15 skiers and boarders, depending on weight, plus the guides and the pilots. Two pilots fly the MI-8-MTB, which means extra safety. You can be sure that the helicopters are flown by very experienced pilots, who are very experienced in heli ski and mountain rescue flying.
