Ski-tour & Backcountry

Ski-touring in Kamchatka is a special kind of philosophy. It is a freeriding experience for those who would like to stay away from civilization, to live in the mountains without facilities usual for everyday life. Tents will accommodate us and give us a chance to see all possible constellations.

 

Do you know they are often called Million Stars Hotels? Ski-touring program is for those who would like to admire new views and have new emotions with every step up the mountains. On top you will feel happy, satisfied and balanced.

We invite you to go the massif Vachkazhtsy located 80 km from the capital city. The highest pount is 1556m. In winter time it is possible to find different treks varying in level of complexity. We are going to stay in the tent camp and cook on gas stoves. Just like in Big Mountains.
