Skiing in Siberia/Skiing in Russia operates in Siberia and Kamchatka peninsula. After many years of heliskiing, ski touring and ski mountaineering all over Russia, we have selected these key spots which provide the best snow and terrain, along with a great cultural experience. Each place we want to share with you is unique; every location has its own special characteristics. The one thing they all have in common is being an amazing place to ski.
At the same time, if you are looking for a customised ski trip to a part of Russia we don’t mention, we will be glad to organise it for you with the same level of safety and quality provided on all our trips.
Our ski season starts in the middle of November and continues right the way through to mid-June. This long window should enable everyone to find a convenient time to ski in Russia.
Kamchatka is a magic land, full of adventures. You will encounter the Pacific ocean, geysers, hot springs, diverse flora and fauna. And, of course, volcanoes. Hundreds of volcanoes are situated in Kamchatka, 30 of which are active. Amid astonishing landscapes you can climb to the top of a volcano and almost feel its energy; it has the ability to make you feel completely content and free. We've been skiing in Kamchatka for more than 20 years; each time we feel unique emotions, and each time is like the first time.
Besides guiding in Siberia and Kamchatka, our founder and lead guide Grigory Mintsev runs skitouring and heliski programs in many exciting ski destinations. He works in Japan, India, Argentina, Chile, Antarctica, Svaneti (Georgia), Canada and Morocco to name a few. In the summer he does customised backpacking trips in the wilderness of Kamchatka peninsula. To get more information, please check his personal website - Climb to Ski.
Besides our skiing programmes, we offer

Mountain and avalanche safety
We provide mountain and avalanche safety programmes: Pre-planning, operation and supervision for all activities in the mountains of Russia. We work in cooperation with the Canadian Avalanche Association and the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides on all these projects.
