ACMG Ski Guide Ski Guide
I am originally from Kamchatka and I have devoted my time to exploring the mountains of the region from childhood. I've been guiding in Kamchatka since 1999 and run guiding projects, organised avalanche courses and worked for the Russian Mountain Guides Association (RMGA).
I am one of few Russians who participated in the Canadian Mountain & Ski Guide Program, and the first and only Ski Guide in Russia to be certified through the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG Ski Guide).
My travel and guiding experience includes many great destinations, such as Kamchatka, Siberia, Caucasus, Japan, South America, Canada, India and Antarctica to name a few. Even though I am based in the Chamonix valley now, I spend several months each year in Kamchatka and Siberia ski touring and skiing and I believe them to be one of the best mountains in the world.
