Few short movies about different Siberian corners will show you parts of Siberian skiing life. Skouring in Luzhba and Baikal Lake area, life of local people and beautiful landscapes. But of course, no one movie can transmit the beauty of real presence. Start skiing season in November, ski deep light powder, try Siberian cuisine, meet nice local people. All this awaits you in amazing Siberia.

Style Altitude - Luzhba Skitouring Lodge 2018
Life in Luzhba revolves around the railway, it's the only way people / supplies etc get in and out and most days we skinned alongside the track. The start of the tannoy announcement was always three distinct tones and I deduced that it sounded like the theme from The Saint TV series and then a bit more Googling and I found the chords. The goods train take nigh on 100secs to go pass and are made up of nigh on 70 trucks and are known as the Siberian Snakes but don't worry I speeded it up. Thanks to a great team for their company.

The Great Siberian Traverse
The Great Siberian Traverse documents a 6,000-mile ski journey through Russia, along the Trans-Siberian Railway. The documentary - created in collaboration with POWDER and Sherpas Cinema - showcases a fringe backcountry skiing community, deep Siberian powder, and skiing’s ancient origins.
We consulted the filming crew before their tour and are glad that they have made a really good movie.
Skitouring in Mamay
Wake up in the morning, bring a water from the river, stoke the stove and make a simple breakfast. Put on skins and climb on the summit to enjoy amazing view of Baikal lake. No phone connection, no internet, life as it was in the good old days. Real wilderness. Real life.
