We are convinced that for off-piste skiing it is necessary to possess of a variety of ski and snowboard techniques and skillful combining of them. Objectives: Progress in skiing, which allow you to be confident off-piste and discover new routes and ski areas; obtaining necessary freeride skills. Learning how to work with avalanche equipment, choosing the right line of ascents and descents, the tactics of behavior in a group and decision making. But of course the main thing is the pleasure of skiing. For whom: progressing skiers and snowboarders, confidently skiing on-piste and want to develop further. As a rule, people who feel confident on-piste, already have the skills to successfully develop new routes. Dynamic balance, loading, edging, conducting, unloading and steering – all these elements are present in skiing, but require a delicate adjustment when switching to new types of snow and to difficult terrains. In off-piste skiing it is very important to be able making quick decisions, make quick turn, slow down or slide. To train those skills we will spend part of the course on-piste, where our instructors will estimate your skiing level and show corrective exercises. But as you know, you can only learn how to […]
Ski touring offers freeriders excellent opportunities to ride in completely new far off locations! Untouched deep snow has never been so close! Goals: Teaching the ski tour ascend techniques, teaching to use ski touring gear and take care of it, improving avalanche sensor operation skills, studying and analyzing snowpack, selecting safe lines of ascend and descend. Audience: confident skiers and snowboarders with previous backcountry riding experience. As freeride is becoming increasingly popular, those who prefer wild lands have to move further and further away from well-known tourist destinations. This is where ski touring and split board gear comes in. It helps you move not only faster, but also easier. At ski tour school, you will learn to use specialized gear. We will thoroughly study the structure of snow and avalanche risk assessment methods. You will acquire hands-on experience of selecting ascend lines and putting knowledge of mountain relief into practice. And, what’s most important, we will spend every day in a new location, finding new ski touring and freeriding opportunities. Program cost includes: two experienced instructors/guides assisting the group, rental of individual avalanche gear (avalanche sensor, shovel and probe), transfers. Scope of the program: improving riding technique; basics of avalanche safety; avalanche rescue; organization and tactics of riding on avalanche […]
Paragliding in Gudauri
Paragliding in Gudauri Paragliding with an instructor is an exciting adventure, which will make your ski resort experience even more intense! What do I need to fly? On a bright day if you see where paragliders are starting and landing, you can come to an instructor or his assistant (you can recognise them by their bright coats) and make an arrangement for a flight. If you want to order a flight beforehand or get more information, just call us: +995 595 16 22 55. You can also write us an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org How does it happen? First, instructor and his assistant prepare equipment for a start. After you’ve been safely buckled into a harness and checked for flight-readiness, the pilot commands to start. Then suddenly you can’t feel the ground under your feet, and you see the mountain, the skiers and the snowboarders, houses and the ropeway from a bird’s view. The flight lasts 10-15 min.: you’re enjoying strange new feelings, taking photos from above and just flying! But, as they say, you can congratulate a pilot only after a successful landing. So, the ground becomes nearer and nearer. The pilot helps you to position yourself properly before landing. When you […]
