Kamchatka Big Volcano - experts only

Our goal is to land on the very top of the biggest volcanoes, ski the steepest couloirs and ride the longest runs in small groups of expert skiers only.
Unique snow conditions in the spring make it possible for skiers to ride some of the most challenging and exciting lines impassable during the rest of the winter. These ideal snow conditions mean skiers can descend from the very top of the volcanoes down some of the longest and steepest slopes. The skiing, although incredible, is challenging and therefore this week is reserved for expert skiers only.
Some of the areas in which we’ll ski:

The North and south faces of the Koryakski volcano (3456m), the southern slopes of Zhupanovski volcano (2960m.), the active crater of Avachinsky volcano (2700m), east couloirs of Aag volcano (2310m), Opala volcano (2475m) and Viluchinskiy volcano (2175m).
