Description

This 9-day holy Armenia ski touring is an unusual program that will surprise you in the best possible way!

Armenia is located in the South Caucasus mountains. It has one of the most ancients civilizations around the globe. It was part of the Silk Road and is the oldest Christian country in the world. Plus, it was inside the Soviet Union until 1990. So there are many mixed traditions.

Another amazing features of this country are the many different landscapes that form it. It has deserts and eternal snow. But most of all a great deal of mountains, volcanoes, canyons and high plateaus because 97% of its land is higher than 2000 m.

And on this trip we’ll go to the best skiing spots: Mount Ara (2575 m), Mount Tezhler (3102 m) Mount Hatis (2529 m) and Fox mountains. And while we do this, we’ll also try some of its best cuisine and wine. Plus we’ll visit traditional monasteries.

But most of all we’ll experience the famous Armenian hospitality!

So please contact me, I’ll be happy to guide you to this 9-day holy Armenia ski touring. I’ll take you on an amazing adventure you will never forget.

About the guide

guide profile img

Originally I'm from Altai, a little-known Siberian mountain region. I grew up and developed as a sportsmen and guide in Altai and the Tian-Shan mountains. Since 2010, I live in St. Petersburg and work a lot in the Caucasus region.

Since 2011 I am learning in the Rus­si­an Moun­tain Guides As­so­ci­ation (RMGA), under auspices of the As­so­ci­ation of Ca­na­dian Moun­tain Guides (ACMG). In 2015 I passed the Ap­pren­tice Ski Guide exam.

My main work des­tin­a­tions are Russian and CIS mountain regions as Altai, Khibiny, Tian-Shan, Kamchatka and all Caucasus. I specialize in ski tour and climbing projects in uncommon mountain regions of Russia and CIS.
