Kamchatka is “the land of fire and ice.” In this eastern region of Russia you can descend almost 2.000 vertical meters of soft fluffy powder, racing down the side of an active volcano while taking in breathtaking views of the sea. Nothing quite compares to the surreal experience of heliskiing in Kamchatka.
Kamchatka is a peninsula on the eastern edge of Russia between Asia and the tip of Alaska where hundreds of volcanoes stretch out across the landscape creating incredible views and epic terrain. This mountainous landscape is known for offering some of the best vertical in the world, with average rides of between 1.000 and 2.000 vertical meters, so you’ll have plenty of time to explore and enjoy the views.
The terrain of Kamchatka is massive, covering an area nearly the size of Switzerland, and throughout the region you’ll enjoy open snowfields and lots of steeps. This is the ultimate destination for steep and deep riders. With more than 20 meters of annual snowfall and a stable maritime snowpack, not only are you guaranteed great skiing conditions while in Kamchatka, but it’s almost a guarantee that you’ll never ski anywhere with more snow in your lifetime!
Because the skiing terrain of Kamchatka is known for being steep and challenging, this trip is best suited for intermediate, advanced and pro skiers and riders.
