The Tarcu Mountains in the western part of the Southcarpathian Mountains is the winter sports area with most snowfalls in Romania. The highest peak is Vârful Căleanu, 2.196 m. The Mountain range offers mostly easy terrain, a good selection of runs that have up to 800 m vertical drop. This resort is ideal for heliski enthusiasts and freeriders who like to enjoy and take it easy.
Safety is out highest priority
As adventure sports, freeriding and heliskiing are associated with risks and dangers that can cause harm to one’s health. These activities take place in a mountain environment where special attention to hazards and strict adherence to safety rules are essential to reduce the risks.
Before their first flight out to the backcountry, all guests are required to attend safety briefings highlighting awareness of risk, best practice guidelines and emergency procedures in the event of an accident. Each guest will be trained in the use of an avalanche transceiver and other safety equipment.
For the flying comfort and safety of our guests, we have chosen one of the best rotorcrafts in business aviation – the Eurocopter AS350 B3 Ecureuil. This small single-engine helicopter has excellent aviation, technical and flight safety features. It provides the fastest, quietest ride as well as the highest level of passenger comfort in its class.It is designed to carry out the most demanding missions, including flying at high altitude and in extreme weather conditions.
"Don't let inexperience in the deep stuff hold you back!"
Heliskiing isn’t only for experts, which means lots of guests are looking forward to day one in real pow conditions. Because hey, outside of heli or cat-skiing, a lot of us just don’t get opportunities to enjoy untouched backcountry perfection. If you are confident on blue and some black runs, are good physical shape but do not have powder experience, you are also ready for heliskiing.
Our base is situated in the ski area Muntele Mic, Caras-Severin, which is ca. 150 km from International Airport Timisoara at an altitude of 1.520 meters.
