If you’re looking for a skiing or snowboarding adventure that you could call “a black diamond in the rough,” Russia is it. You may have skied in the Alps, or shredded powder in Canada, but nothing compares to the adventure of exploring the wild and exciting terrain, and the untracked powder of Russia. A ski trip in Russia is the chance for the adventure of a lifetime, skiing or snowboarding through the beautiful, vast landscapes of this country that few get the chance to visit while enjoying learning about a new culture, tasting new foods, and meeting new friends.
Throughout Kamchatka and the Caucasus, two of Russia’s most popular skiing regions, you can expect major vertical and long lines running down the slopes of some of the most remote places in the world. Many of our trips offer a chance to dig your skis into the powder and tackle steep chutes, cliffs, spines ridges, gullies, and bowls and some of the best tree skiing on the planet. Kamchatka is a volcanic region where you’ll see nature’s sleepy giants, volcanoes, transformed into snowy peaks. You might even have a chance to see and ski on an active volcano or other areas known for their majestic views of the ocean, two traits which together have earned the region the name “the land of fire and ice.” The annual snowfall in Russia is impressive and dependable, often making for excellent early season ski trips. Skiing through this untamed terrain isn’t for everyone though, so most of our trips are suited for advanced and expert skiers as well as those who are comfortable with hiking and skiing in all conditions.
