Helicopter or heli-skiing is a form of backcountry/freeride , which involves skiing on the untouched slopes of wild mountains using a helicopter as a lift.

According to one of the organizers of the heli-ski sports base, Hashim Ali Hashimoglu, last year about 400 tourists tried extreme sports, but this year higher figures are expected for the season.

“I can speak with confidence about the popularity heli-skiing and excellent tourist flow, based on early bookings. Groups of tourists will come from both near and far abroad,” said Khashimoglu.
According to him, for safety reasons, there are two tracks in the mountains - the so-called “black” one, for high-level professionals, and "green" for beginners.
