LAKE BAIKAL: HELISKIING ADVENTURE IN RUSSIA

SIBERIAN FOREST

Within the magical, white boreal forest - the taiga - spectacular Siberian powder waits for you.

PEARL OF SIBERIA

You’ll ski on the shores of the oldest and deepest lake in the world, a UNESCO heritage site.

NATURE 360°

With exceptional panoramic views and extremely diversified topography, this area is exemplary of south-west Siberia.

YOUR DESTINATION: BAIKAL, THE WORLD’S OLDEST LAKE

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!
