Backcountry ski in Siberia
Many people think about siberian winter as cold and dark. Nevertheless it can be beautiful and amazing. We're going to arrange winter tour to mountains of Kuznetsk Alatau in Southern Siberia on border of Kemerovo region and Khakassia republic.
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 highly recommend to take avalanche rescue detector, shovel and probe.
Temperatures are vary from -10 to -30. Last winter was quite mild with temperature about -10..-15.
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 you can try snowshoeing. It is easy, fun and calm outdoor activity.
