The “Pearl of Siberia” – this Russian icon’s nickname – is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List as the oldest and deepest lake in the world.
It’s precisely the lake’s 600 km length and 1700 m depth which create perfect powder: the dramatic dimensions create similar effects to an inland sea.
Before the surface freezes, the water evaporates, heading toward the shores to meet the notorious Siberian cold. Nature’s magic takes over and the surrounding mountains are covered with a very light powder, even at low altitude.
Get your down jacket and hat, but don’t wait to discover this crystalline snow in the midst of the taiga. Adrenaline thrills and magical runs will quickly warm you up. Promised!
“Heliski Russia and Kamchtaka make for a trip of a lifetime : one you’d love to repeat each and every winter. The best heliskiing experience ever with exhilarating descents surrounded by a dramatic wilderness of ice and fire. Very hard to beat… You’ve got to go !”
