If you want to get the blood pulsating, outrageous freeskiing is on offer in this unique part of the world. Snowcat and heliski operators in the Caucasus will show you backcountry riding you’ve only dreamed of. Sure, the region is gaining popularity, but there’s still time to ski or ride this untamed terrain before word gets out.
