More Info

Siberia is huge. If it were a country, it would be the largest in the world by a wide margin. It is also one of the coldest places on earth with some of the harshest winter conditions found anywhere. This means there are plenty of incredible places to head out for a backcountry skiing odyssey.

Away from the popular aforementioned ones, Luzhba is another great spot for some secluded backcountry skiing. Even more remotely located that Irkutsk, it takes at least three days to reach Luzhba from most parts of the world and you will feel like the only person on earth once you get there. Some steep slopes filled with great powder will make for the skiing vacation of a lifetime.

Farther northwest, the peninsula of Kamchatka is another excellent option for Siberian ski tourers. Due to its mountainous terrain and spectacular landscapes, Kamchatka has been referred to as the Mecca of freeride skiing, due to all of the diverse landscapes and high-quality powder that falls in abundance.

One of the many things that makes Kamchatka stand out from the rest of Russia are the stunning views. Many guides offer the chance to ski from the top of a volcano or mountain directly to the Pacific Ocean.

Everything was just perfect. Our local Guide Sergey showed us the best spots with really nice descends in amazing powder. His hut was very cute and our cook Tonja did a great job. Everything was just perfect. A dream came true. Thanks Sergey for the perfect guiding.

Last week I came back from a great week skiing in Siberia! The surroundings and the facilities were amazing! The snow quality was good, although due to the cold (between -30 and -40) the powder snow of 1 meter was pretty slow and quite tough to ski through. As well the tour guide Dimitri did an amazing job and I learned a lot from him. Thanks for organising this wonderful week and the service is great I have to say!

It was a once in a lifetime experience! The organisation of the trip was very good and the team excellent - funny, smiling, very welcoming and as well we enjoyed good Russian traditional food. The snow was outstanding – every line, every day - crazy powder snow! The guiding was totally competent, experienced - knowing the area like their own pocket, we felt their passion. I hope the lonely lovely Mamay valley, where you can admire thousands of stars at night (while going to the toilet or cooling off from the sauna :-), will keep its charm and gentle tourism for a long time. The trip was an amazing unforgettable experience.

Amazing skiing in Siberia with guys from \"Skiing in Russia\". Luzhba is very cosy and quiet place somewhere in Siberia. If you look for some new experience in skiing or snowboarding far from civilization - this place is the best choice. Beautiful forest powder runs without any competition with other powder-hunters  We have a week in November! and already Luzhba delivered lots of fresh and wonderful snow. \"Skiing in Russia\" guides organized everything: all transfers, comfortable lodge, amazing meal and main point - interesting and safe skiing. Trip to Siberia is one of you never forget. Sure!
