Went on their summer skiing expedition to Viluchinsky Volcano in Kamchatka. Was one of my favourite trips I’ve been on.
Totally professional and excellent logistics. Guiding was top notch. Great communication leading up to the trip.
Extremely good value.
Thanks to Grigory and Roman for an amazing week.

Amazing ski touring trip at Kamchatka. Grigory is a professional guide, very happy skiing with him. Everything was well organized. We also love the food, much better than we expected.

Had a fantastic adventure in Siberia. For me it was the best tree skiing I have done, great snow and a great bunch of guys!
Random goggle search lead to an excellent two weeks touring and cat skiing. Well organized, great crew and great skiing/snowboarding!

Great ski trip with all the good staff of Skiing in Siberia, good guide, good food, good sauna. Very authentic and local accommodations.

Week that we spent in Siberia, Priiskovoe (November 2017) was more than great and well organised. Sandwich in the snowcat was very tasteful, cooled beer and Banya, and of course a lot of powder skiing. Thank you all for that week, I’ll be back next year, I hope. Thanks to the guide’s Grigory, Sasha and Dmitry.

I really enjoyed staying in Luzhba Skitouring Lodge and skiing with you and look forward to do it again in the future. You guys are amazing!
We did enjoy the whole tour, the Country, the mountains, the snow, your guiding and organization. We would like to go back to Kamchatka or also other places in Russia, hopefully with your assistance. Meanwhile we’ll suggest your company to whoever could be interested.

Everything on the tour was planned and prepared very well, and Dimitry was a very good guide. I especially appreciate his flexibility so that we took the chance to climb Avachinsky volcano on the very first day. It was a hard day (jetlag…), of course, but also the day of the week with the best conditions. I also want to highlight that the food on the tour was excellent and exceeded by far my expectations. The only real disappointment of the trip was that we couldn’t reach the top of Vilyuchinsky volcano. But that was, of course, due to the weather which was not in our hands. And I anyhow appreciate that we did our best and did try it twice.

I had an awesome trip to Kamchatka, it’s such an incredible place! I was really impressed with all the organisation and our guide Roman was great, very relaxed but very professional throughout. It was also so good of him to help me organise surfing and kayaking after. I will definitely come back, maybe next year or maybe the year after.

Just an awesome trip in a very wild place, combining great ski on volcanoes and amazing landscape and wildlife. Thanks to you, Grigory for the perfect organization. I’ll never forget this month together and this adventure I’ve spent in Kamchatka.
C’était une super expérience, je vous la recommande!

I’ve had a great time and it was a special and rewarding trip to Kamchatka. The skiing surrounded by the beautiful nature had great impact.
I’ve got a lot of lovely memories. Especially we felt very good with the guiding and helpfull hands of our guide. He made us feel at home and was as well professional, kind and a great cook.

Well, one of the best adventure-travel agencies I know. Small but very comfortable and client-oriented! Providing wilderness trips in most beautiful places of Russia, and organizing skitouring and heliskiing all over the globe… Highly recommended!

The whole trip was absolutely fabulous I had three weeks of powder skiing, exceptional hospitality and a great cultural experience. Grigory Mintsev from Skiing in Russia who runs the touring in Luzhba went above and beyond to make my trip work so smoothly.
Luzhba is not going to be everyone’s piece of cake. Not everyone wants to skin up hill. The runs at Luzhba were steeper and the powder deeper. The quality of the guiding in terms of their qualifications and experience, attention to safety identifying optimum runs and general customer service was first class and as good as anywhere in the world. The accommodation at Luzhba was brand new and very warm and comfortable.
Reasons to ski in Siberia:
1. The best snow in Siberia occurs when other locations including Hokkaido do not have their best snow. So it is possible to ski the best time in Siberia and the best time at other locations in the one season if you have the time and money.
2. Great cultural experience. As well as Moscow I had some time in Novokuznetsk, Sheregesh town and Novosibirsk. People in Russia were super friendly and helpful. The ordinary people made it clear they were really pleased to have you there and went out of their way to compensate for the language problem.
3. Food. Had some great food everywhere but especially at Luzhba.

Amazing skiing in Siberia with guys from “Skiing in Russia”.
Luzhba is very cosy and quiet place somewhere in Siberia. If you look for some new experience in skiing or snowboarding far from civilization – this place is the best choice. Beautiful treeline powder runs without any competition with other powder-hunters.
We had a week in November, and already Luzhba delivered lots of fresh and wonderful snow.
“Skiing in Russia” guides organized everything: all transfers, comfortable lodge, amazing meal and main point – interesting and safe skiing.
Trip to Siberia is a one you’ll never forget. Sure!
- Moscow, Russia
Just want to take the opportunity to say thank you for the magic trip to Siberia and all the good you have done for us (putting in the track, cooking, joining us for après ski, …) We really had a fantastic time skiing through the forest every day in great fresh powder snow. Accommodation in local wooden huts with traditional Russian banya and the home cooked food made it a real Siberian experience – we miss the place already!

Thank you for the great time in Siberia. I had a wonderful time with the group and Sasha and Dmitry! Organization and service were on a high level! I have lots of snowboard plans and I’ll contact Skiing in Russia team again for other amazing places and trips.

Skiing with Grigory and Dmitry in Luzbha was awesome. The communication pre trip was faultless, and help and advice with visa (very easy). Transport from Moscow was super easy with guide all the way. Snow was great, touring each day from the lodge with lots of varied terrain – trees, bowls and waist deep powder (what’s not to like ). The lodge was comfortable with great home-made food shared with good company. Grigory and Dmitry are fantastic guides running a safe and fun operation. My only negative was the week went too fast! I for one, will sure be back for another trip.

Big credits go to Grigory and all the team for his tremendous efforts in re-opening Siberia and Luzhba, in particular, as a new world powder destination. This was my first skitouring experience that went smooth from very beginning and until the end of the trip. Logistic, food, accommodation and, of course, Grigory’s professionalism as a guide set a very high standard in every aspect of this adventure. And, of course, Luzhba. This is really a unique spot that every freerider should visit! Best snow and tree-skiing in my life!

Just perfect trip to skitour Kamchatka’s volcanoes.

I’ve been in Siberia and Kamchatka with Grigory and both trips were very well organized and super exciting. The choice of ski routes, lodges, food and logistics was great. When going to the trip with Grigory you get not just fresh snow, but wonderful experience in beautiful place.
- Moscow, Russia
Very well organised, safe and absolutely fantastic trips.
I’ve been with Grigory on five trips and will take more. Highly recommended if you are looking for powder and especially if you are ready for skitouring – almost anywhere on the globe. Ready to comment in detail personally, contact me if needed.

I’ve done skitouring program in Siberia. Had a great time over 10 days and felt that my skiing has improved quite a lot. See you all next year.

My trip to Luzbha with Grigory and Dmitry was a fantastic experience! Powder snow for 18 days in beautiful mountain forests, touring from a comfortable wooden lodge in the middle of Siberia, an adventure I will remember forever! Grigory runs a professional and well organised operation focused on getting the best snow in some amazing locations around the world, will be going on more trips with them that’s for sure!
Had another great trip to Luzbha, Siberia in 2015! This time we stayed in the new upgraded accommodat
