Backcountry Basecamp is set up in the mountains of the Greater Caucasus at 1,820 meters above sea
level in a 45–60 min drive from the nearest town of Oni (Racha region). It is located in the north valley
in a forest area and has the most stunning vistas of the surrounding peaks. The location is accessible
from an old auto-road by both skitour and snowmobile.

Basecamp has direct access to skitour routes in both forest and alpine terrains. The diversity of runs is
the key feature of the location. There are options for different weather and avalanche conditions, and
wishes and fitness of a group: from shallow and relaxed fields to steep and technical slopes.
The highest elevation accessible by skitour is around 3,100 meters. Average vertical drops are 200–
400 meters in the forest area and 400–1100 meters in the alpine area. Predominant expositions are
North, West, and East.

Backcountry Basecamp features twin bed modules for guests, a spacious module for dining and aprèsski activities, an expedition banya (steam room) and a bio-toilet tent. It also has electricity (socket
