This 9-day Arhyz-Dombay ski tour in Russia is the perfect chance to ski in the Caucasus and experience Russian culture!

The Caucasus mountain range is located in the west of Asia. It lies between the Black and Caspian seas and a large part of it is on Russian territory. 

This adventure will begin Minerálnye Vody, one of the doors to the Caucasus. And from here we'll begin the journey that will take us to 6 different peak between Arhyz and Dombay.

During the trip we'll stay in different hostels and mountain huts. At the end of the day, you'll share your day's stories with fellow skiers, while experiencing a real Russian alpine environment!

And, of course, I'll take you to some of the best slopes in the Caucasus. Your satisfaction is guaranteed!

So please contact me if you'd like to join me on this super interesting 9-day Arhyz-Dombay ski tour in Russia. It will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

About the guide

Originally I'm from Altai, a little-known Siberian mountain region. I grew up and developed as a sportsmen and guide in Altai and the Tian-Shan mountains. Since 2010, I live in St. Petersburg and work a lot in the Caucasus region.

Since 2011 I am learning in the Rus­si­an Moun­tain Guides As­so­ci­ation (RMGA), under auspices of the As­so­ci­ation of Ca­na­dian Moun­tain Guides (ACMG). In 2015 I passed the Ap­pren­tice Ski Guide exam.

My main work des­tin­a­tions are Russian and CIS mountain regions as Altai, Khibiny, Tian-Shan, Kamchatka and all Caucasus. I specialize in ski tour and climbing projects in uncommon mountain regions of Russia and CIS.
