Description

If you are a ski love, come and discover one of the best ski touring spots in Russia: Koryaksky Volcano!

Located in the southern of Kamchatka Peninsula, Koryaksky Volcano has 3456 meters and its an adventurous place for ski mountaineering. It offers many couloirs and lines with vertical drops up to 2700 meters.

I propose a 9-day program during while we’ll visit Petropavlovsk city for then attempt Koryaksky volcano for skiing the best slopes. We’ll rest in a comfortable mountain hut. Besides the technical part, we’ll have the opportunity to appreciate the incredible landscapes that its nature offers.

The ascension can be done in 2 or 1 day depending on the abilities of the group:
  •  2-day ascension program: In this itinerary we’ll gradually ascending the first day to advanced camp and the second day to summit. Afterwards, we skiing down to mountain hut. This option is easier physically but it reduces the choice of the ski routes when we descend.
  •  1-day ascension program:  We start ascending at 3 am in the morning. Once on the top, we descend skiing to mountain huts. In this case, the itinerary is more challenging but it gives us the freedom to choose the down route.
Preparation

Due to the nature of the terrain, participants must have a high level of skiing in varied snow conditions with 3 years of ski tour experience. Additionally, it’s necessary to have an excellent physical condition and also be able to skiing up 2000 vertical meters every day.

Do you have any interest in skiing in Koryaksky Volcano? So, don’t hesitate in getting in touch with me. We’ll have the time to discuss your doubts and organised a program that meet your expectations. I will be glad to be your guide and make you live a great experience! You can’t miss it!!
