Description

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!
