The area
This region offers probably the most potential for heliskiing in Russia, with an endless variation of descents that will astonish even the most seasoned of heli-skiers. Bordering the Central Caucasus highest peaks and the most northern subtropical area in the planet Western Caucasus mountains, the area of Arkhyz perfectly combines high altitude alpine skiing with top quality deep powder thrill riding


Village and the Hotel
Arkhyz is a beautiful and peaceful village with only 600 inhabitants. The mountain resort was founded on 1923 at 1450m and due to its mild climate and natural water source step into the famous chain of Caucasus balneological resorts.
Our lodge is a former mountain residence of Mikhail Gorbachev, the first president of USSR. The house and the rooms are super spacious and show traditional style standards of Soviet political elite. A huge garden surrounded by century old pine trees is a perfect place for shashlyk dinner BBQ after a day of skiing.
