This absolutely unique Heli - Ski program can be organized in the
summer period, only with Kan Tengri Mountain Service . Without false
modesty we can say that only our company is operating this program.
This is our exclusive "Know - How ". You can ski in the summer on
slopes from an altitude of 4500 m up to 5800 m. In this program
you will spend the first week in alpine meadows at an altitude of
2200 m in comfortable tents on the bank of a mountain river and
in the nearness of coniferous forests. For five days in the morning
after breakfast, starting from the meadow full of edelweiss, an
20 minutes flight with a powerful Russian helicopter will bring
you between snow-covered peaks and mighty glaciers. The first two
days you'll be skiing from the top of an glacier with an altitude
of 4500-4700 meters, 7-8 runs a day each with a total height-difference
of 700-800 meters. (is this right???) It will give you a good acclimatization.
In this phase the descents are not steep and acceptable for skiers
at any level. The second phase has descents from the tops of 5000
- 5500 meters glaciers. The height-difference is 1500 m. The exceptional
group can have more than 4 descents a day. Any of them is a real
enjoyment for experienced skiers who ski well on icy and crumbed
snow. On fifth and last day of skiing the group has to decide whom
of the participants (sometimes the whole group!) will ski from Semeyonov
peak (5816 m). This is "ski - extreme". Only Kan Tengri's guides
have the experience of skiing-down from this top. The height-difference
from the top to the foot of this peak is 1800 m. Every descent is
a unique experience. But until now only one group has refused from
this adventure. The rest skied down very successfully, were the
helicopter awaited them with champagne. We guarantee skiing 15000
m of height-difference for the whole program. In the same time 18000
m is included in the cost.
