Would you like to enjoy an exciting Siberia ski touring adventure? Then join me on this amazing 9-day program in Luzhba.

Luzhba is a small train station in the middle of Siberia, where there are just a few huts surrounded by mountains that are covered with deep powder snow. The snowpack is protected from the wind by trees – mostly spruce, with some Siberian cedars and classic Russian Birch. Low temperatures and very little moisture keep the snow light and fluffy, perfect for ski touring adventures, like the one we will set on!

We will begin our program by meeting in Moscow. From there, we will transfer to Novokuznetsk and then to Luzhba, where we will spend 5 full days out on the slopes. Finally, we will return to Moscow. You can find a detailed itinerary below.

Please keep in mind that we will be skiing in a remote location, away from lifts and resorts. Therefore, we will have to skin up in order to ski down, and this will require you to have both a good fitness level and prior skiing experience. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you every step of the way.

So, are you ready for an exciting Siberia ski touring adventure? Then contact me now and let’s start planning this unforgettable powder snow experience!

Or, if you prefer, you can join me on an unforgettable Mamay Valley ski touring program!

About the guide

guide profile img

I'm an IFMGA-certified guide and have been guiding for the past 15 years.

I got the chance to do beautiful ascents like the Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, Mont Cook, McKinley, 7000m Peaks in ex-USSR, technical climbing In the Caucasus, new climbing routes in the USA, ski-touring in Alps, Russia etc.

I'm an expert in the Elbrus region. I know every corner of it and will be happy to guide you to the summit, at 5.642m high, skiing or walking.
Please get in touch with me and let's leave together for a wonderful adventure in the incredible Caucasus mountain range!

I work together with a group of guides, so if I'm not available, one of my colleagues will guide you!

My favorite saying: "We will either find a way, or make one".
