Discover Mamay Valley, a remote ski touring destination close to a major natural wonder in Siberia: Baikal Lake.
Siberia is a land of breathtaking landscapes, covering almost 30% of Russia. Mamay Valley is a small beautiful valley tucked in the Khamar–Daban mountains, very close to one of Siberia’s biggest natural attractions: Baikal Lake. Famous for being the largest and deepest lake in the world, Baikal Lake receives tourists throughout the year. During winter, the area is an amazing ski touring destination, although it’s only visited by small groups. There’s only one mountain hut in the area, which can host between 8 to 10 people.
We can adapt this trip to different skill levels, but it’s important that you have previous off-piste skiing experience and know how to manage deep snow. You should also be in very good physical conditions.
We’ll meet in the city of Irkutsk and return there too.
The mountain hut is normally reserved from Saturday to Saturday.
Possible daily schedule – depends on weather and snow condition.
Season: November – March.
