    Join me in a 17-day ski tour around the most outstanding peaks and volcanoes of Kamchatka. A unique expedition with helicopter transfers! 

    Kamchatka is a 1250 km long volcanic peninsula located in Siberia, in the East of Russia. Its volcanic part, with more than 100 volcanoes, has been a World Heritage Site of Unesco since 1997.

    Kamchatka will provide us with amazing open areas where to enjoy the best ski itineraries. We can find ski descents and tracks for all levels. What is more exciting is that, during this adventure, our transfer will be a helicopter! That way we can use the time exclusively for skiing around the peninsula.

    We’ll climb several peaks and volcanoes if snow conditions and eruptive smoke allow us. If you want more details about the program, please check this sample itinerary:

    • Day 1: Arrival to the Petropavlovsk Airport and transfer to a hotel of the town or to another lodge in Paratunka.
    • Day 2: A transfer will take you to Kozyrevsk or Esso. We can spend the night in a hostel or a guesthouse.
    • Day 3: We’ll flight to our base camp by helicopter. We will define the site previously, according to the group level and snow conditions.
    • Days 4-14: We will climb and enjoy some ski touring in the following peaks and volcanoes: Ovalnaya Zimina, Kretsovsky, Tolbachik, Klyuchevskaya, Ushovsky, Kamen and Biezymyanni.
    • Day 15: Return by helicopter to Kozyrevsk or Esso. We can spend the night in a hostel or a guesthouse.
    • Day 16: Transfer by minibus to Petrop. We can rest and spend the night in a hotel of the town, in Elyzovo or in Paratunka.
    • Day 17: A transfer will take you to the airport where you’ll fly back home.

    So, don’t wait any longer. Get in touch with me and book your place for one of my departure dates of 2017. I can take to Kamchatka a maximum of 8 people. Tell your friends and let’s ski around this amazing peninsula!

    What People are Saying about Ivan Moshnikov

     

    This was my second trip together with Ivan Moshnikov. It\'s safe to say that everbody in our group absolutely loved it. We had a great time in Russia and it was an absolut blast. Even though we were not able to experience \"true Mamay snorking powder\" we still skied perfect snow for 7 days in a row. I threw my mobile in a corner in the first day and did not pick it up until 8 wonderfull days filled with skiing, amazing food, going to sauna and enyoing wonderfull company. However, if you a looking for a super lonely place, Mamay is probably not the right choice. The valley gets visited frequently by locals and other tourists. Still, there is enough place for everybody I think. 10/10 I will definitly come again. Many thanks to Yulia, Roma and Stepan!

    It was a great adventure! I got answer to the few questions I have prior my departure and the support to get the required document. Once in Irkutsk we met with Ivan and depart to Mamay Valley where we had unbelievable snow. Days with snow where enjoyed in the forest with unbelievable amount of powder and days with sun were enjoyed higher up on the ridges where we could enjoy nice views, untouched snow and 5***** powder! I would repeat over and over again. The hut is really cosy and we have all what we need for a week of adventures. The sauna is a good think to do in the evenings before great dinners.

    The skitouring in Mamay as coordinated by Ivan was absolutely fantastic! Our guide Roman Romanov did a brilliant job in finding the best snow and runs, taking all of our needs into account and was very professional. The hut was really cozy, the food delicious and the sauna after skiing were the ideal finish to the perfect ski day!

    It was great to be with Ivan. Above all, I came through him in an area that I otherwise would not have been able to travel. He really took good care of everything and I learned a lot. DychTau is a mountain that demands a lot from the beginning to the end!
