Russia: Siberia

Enjoy some early doors powder skiing in this untapped spot in Siberia where you can be the first to enjoy that deep powder and ensure an epic winter season.

"The perfect way to kick off the winter season"

For those of you who can’t wait to get your skis back on at the start of the season in December then Siberia is the perfect spot for you. Brush off the cobwebs in November with some fresh powder and enjoy the perfect way to kick off your winter season. With snow falling almost every day at the beginning of winter, this untapped region can provide some of the best powder you’ll ski all season. Whether you’re up for ski touring in Luzhba or a free ride adventure in Sheregesh, make Siberia your next pre season holiday choice.

"Accommodation of a traditional Russian hut"

Guests that choose to explore Luzhba will find themselves in a very small town with only a few huts, surrounded by undisturbed mountains all covered with deep powder snow. The accommodation of a traditional Russian hut, recently refurbished in 2011, allows guests to unwind in the evenings beside an open fire or soothe those aches and pains in the Banya (Russian Sauna). Enjoy some superb local cuisine whilst chatting with friends and preparing for the next day of epic touring. Most of the skiing is in the tree-line zone, with some big snowfields and couloirs, with the drop being 1200-1300m on an average day.

"Freeriding options in the ski resort Sheregesh"

Those looking to explore the freeriding options can head over to Sheregesh, a well know ski resort amongst local Siberian skiers. With its own microclimate, Sheregesh enjoys several meters of snow throughout the season from early November through to May. The area offers some perfect powder skiing in the surrounding treeline or backcountry routes with some awesome summits easily accessed by ski touring or split boarding. Within the town there is a good choice of modern hotels as well as simple bed and breakfasts. And, in the evenings, why not check out the local nightclubs or sit back and relax in the sauna. Whichever spot you choose, Siberia offers some great pre-season powder skiing, why wait until December when you could be hitting up the mountains in November!
