Powder skiing and Far East backcountry skiing (ski-touring)
Near Baikal lake, southern Siberia, the biggest pure drinkable water tank of our planet. From Moscou to St Petersburgh, we’ll fly to Irkutsk, on the edge of the Baikal lake, hard frozen from late January to May, where we’ll discover almost another continent. Siberia, where everything is oversized. Siberia is the huggest region of Russia, much bigger than all Europe. No lifts in Khamar Daban, where we’ll ski mostly in Mamai valley..
Our program includes backcountry skiing, ski-touring in steep forests of pines and cedars, and above the hoods, on the summits! Sometimes we’ll be bordering the south of lake Baikal, 190 km from Irkutsk (4 hours driving from Irkutsk), lake on which the heaviest trucks can be driven from late January!!
Good off piste skiers; we may also do some forest ski-touring
