Heli-skiing tops the bucket list of many adventure seekers, and this ski season Design Hotels member Rooms Hotel Kazbegi in Georgia is offering travelers a chance to try it out in an unusual spot: the Caucasus Mountains.
In a package created with Gudauri-Heliskiing, guests can join a heli-ski tour led by a team of experienced Austrian pilots and mountain guides in helicopters granted almost unrestricted access to the mountain range, at altitudes between 4900ft and 13800ft above sea level.
Back at the hotel, guests can enjoy a restaurant serving traditional Georgian fare, a cozy bar with its own fireplace and cigar menu and a sun terrace offering views of the rugged landscape. There is also a lobby lounge, library, casino and indoor swimming pool.
The seven-night heli-ski packages are available from January 23 – March 19, 2016. The packages host a maximum of 16 people per tour and offer six days of unlimited heli-skiing. Specialized deep powder ski equipment is supplied upon request. The package includes one night at Rooms Hotel Tbilisi, group transfer, and six nights’ accommodation at Rooms Hotel Kazbegi, including breakfast and dinner at the hotel’s restaurant. Rates start from $7,500 per person, based on double occupancy.
