This tour will be a real discovery for those who are just trying freeride out. Only in Kamchatka you have endless expanses of snowy fields with unique views over volcanoes and the ocean; only here you can ski through stone birch forest, down volcano slopes, swim in thermal pools après-ski, and savour delicious seafood and fish dishes.
Required level of skiing: stable and confident on the slopes.
Minimum freeride experience, meaning if you fall, you quickly get up and continue on, without spending time on “collecting one’s thoughts.”
