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.
Skitouring in Luzhba, Siberia
Cool video from Luzhba Skitouring Lodge, filmed in December 2017.
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.
