Heli-skiing and Cold War history collide in Salomon Freeski TV, S6 E04 “Glasnost Ski”
From salomonfreeskitv on YouTube:
“The Arkhyz Gosdacha (Архыз Госдача) sits in a remote river valley on the north side of Russia’s Caucasus Mountains. Built as a mountain retreat for the leaders of the Soviet Union during the Cold War, this lavish estate has played significant role in shaping the history of our modern world. Kaj Zackrisson, Mark Abma, and Mike Douglas discover it also serves as a fine stepping-off point to some of the best, undiscovered heliskiing on the planet.”
