Gudauri

Gudauri was formerly a luxury destination for the Soviet elite and is now recognised as one of the worlds best (and cheapest) heli-skiing destinations with skiing up to 4200m. The mountains offering heliskiing are well over 4000 metres high and skiers can expect to clock up around 10000 metres of vertical mertres on fresh powder fields during a weeks stay. Off-slope facilities are good and the climate favourable, being on the same latitude as Southern Italy.
