Join me on this catskiing week in Siberia (Kuznetsk Alatau), near Priiskovy, Russia, and we will freeride ski down and around some of the best mountains in the country, with wide open slopes, deep and fresh powder, and tree-lined forests making for an unforgettable and spectacular scene that provides the perfect backdrop to our skiing.

Priiskovy is a village located in the Siberian mountain range of Kuznetsk Alatau, in the South of the region. It is internationally renowned as an excellent freeride skiing location, owing to its relative remoteness and isolation that ensures the scenery and terrain remains pristine, untouched and fresh.

Basing ourselves in Priiskovy for the week, we head out each day for our freeride skiing between 9am and 7pm via snowcats featuring 14-person cabins.

There are several mountains that we can choose to ski on each day, with highlights including Semeynaja (1293m), Stolovaya (1320m), Transvaalskaya (1386m), Ivanovskaya (1391m), Zaozernaya (1657m), Gus (1460m) and Panfilovskaya (1335m).

Each slope has distinct characteristics, ensuring that there are constant and new challenges on each one, and the powder is unbelievably fresh and deep owing to the heavy snowfall this area endures.

The smoothness and openness of the slopes is a freeride skier’s dream, with little vegetation to get in the way and occasional rocky outcrops to navigate.

Due to its isolation and remoteness, population density is very low here, making for a blissful experience all around, with little to no chance of running in to anyone else.

After a full week of skiing we finish our adventure, weary yet delighted at having been able to freeride ski in such exemplary conditions, and in such a special place.

This week of catskiing in Siberia is a true bucket-list item – book now to tick it off!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
