Ski touring in Siberia – Mamay Canyon

13 – 21 December 2020

Ski adventure in Siberia – infinite cold powder, virgin savage nature and Russian domesticity

We embark on an adventure in Siberia nearby Baikal lake – the deepest in the World. This region is famous with the fact that in November and December before the lake’s waters get frozen a huge amounts of light cold snow falls. Its quality remains unchanged for some long periods due to specific local climate and also due to spruce, Siberian cedars and classic Russian Birch forests.

Mamay canyon is our target for this tour. It offers excellent skiing conditions with climbs up to 1000-1100 meters daily. Terrains have everything – forests, snow pillows, open alpine slopes, chutes up to 400. Having this, it is understandable why locals (and we also) do recommend skis not less than 110mm width under the foot.

Along with all these amazing ski conditions in Siberia our adventure would not be so cool without local life’s colour – simple and nothing in common with the modern western lifestyle. We are going to stay in a mountain hut completely isolated in the nature. It has some basic facilities only. An on-site chef will take care for us preparing some local specialties. Apart from the standard 3 meals, each day after returning from the cold Siberian “smoke” an afternoon snack will be waiting for us.

This program is suitable for people experienced in ski touring and deep snow skiing. Basic avalanche safety knowledge is recommended.

Note: We keep the rights to change the program in case of force majeure circumstances.

* This program will be conducted with minimum 4 and no more than 8 people.

* Reservation should be no later than 30 days before the program. Reservation is considered confirmed if payment is processed within 3 days after booking.
