This time we invite you to experience an extraordinary experience in the Kaçkars. In our country, unfortunately it is not very well known, but it is very common in the developed world to discover high alpine skiing tours. The mountains in our country are very suitable for this enjoyable performance sport. Of course, in the pristine valleys of the Kaçkars during winter, being on the slopes is one of the most special tour-skiing experiences.

Alpine skiing is structurally similar, except for a few important changes to the skis we ski on the ski slopes. The main difference is the special binding mechanism that allows the heel movement to be released. In addition, thanks to a piece of fabric that can be attached to the bottom of the skis, the ski can move forward, but it does not slip back. This piece, which is an artificial imitation of seal skin, is called leather. For alpine skiing, which has evolved from ancestors known as telemarkans for centuries, sneakers used in the slopes are different and softer.

As you can come with your own tour skis, you can rent tour skis and equipment for a small fee.

In this tour, we will perform our activity together with a training that includes basic information about the alpine skiing. Skiing is a multidisciplinary mountain sport. We offer participants a multi-performance tour such as mountaineering, ski climbing and off-piste landing.

The most effective way to explore the peaks of the mountains is to use alpine skiing. Thus it is possible to take long distances effortlessly.

Participants in our program can participate in the skiing alpine skiing. Don’t miss this extraordinary mountain sport experience.
