Many people think about siberian winter as cold and dark. Nevertheless it is very beautiful. We're going to arrange ski tour to mountains of Kuznetsk Alatau in Southern Siberia. There is enourmous amount of snow allowing great ski touring and snowboarding.
Main purpose is backcountry skiing in powder snow. Slopes are moderate covered with trees. Height differences are 500-700 meters.
Avalanche danger is low, tough we recommend to take avalanche rescue detector, shovel and probe.
Temperatures vary from -5 to -20.
Hut is equipped with heating stove, table, gas stove. There is a banya as well. Other facilities are very simple.
If you are not skier/border, we offer snowshoes. Snowshoeing is easy, fun and relaxing outdoor activity.
