What is the most important after a long day of heliskiing? We believe, this is a delicious and nourishing meal. This important part of your heliskiing experience will be handled by our experienced chef and kitchen staff.
The focus is made on high quality Kamchatka ingredients such as reindeer (venison), fresh fish, Kamchatka king crab, seafood, local plants and berries and anything what nature provides in the region. Those with special dietary needs will not have to worry, for our chef is well versed in the ways of various diets.
It is important to start the day right and the first meal of the day should not be skipped. Breakfast includes a large variety of options from muesli, yogurt, fruit and berries to freshly baked breads, different kinds of eggs and traditional Russian bliny.
Lunch in the field
Lunch tastes better outside, and is typically eaten in a well-chosen picnic spot while out skiing. Our big lunch box includes delicious soups, sandwiches, smoked Kamchatka salmon, tea, coffee and plenty of snacks to keep you fueled for skiing and snowboarding.
Once per week we may run a little barbecue party in a picturesque place like a Pacific Ocean coast.
At the end of the day we invite everyone to try apré ski snacks along with hot soups and cold drinks.
Our talented chef will take good care of you, serving 3 course dinners along with our kitchen staff. Evenings are spent in the dining area where we feast on local dishes focusing on fish, seafood, venison and local plants and vegetables, followed by traditional Russian desserts.
At our bar we have a good selection of locally brewed beer along with spirits and wine. The refrigerators throughout the property are always well stocked with a selection of mineral water, juice and beer.
