Freeride touring at Lake Baikal
Mamai is Russian freeride touring Mecca in Khabar Daban mountain range. It is a small valley in Siberian republic of Buryatia where South Siberian mountains meet lake Baikal - the largest fresh water lake on earth. Why coming here to ski tour? The answer is obvious: the total amount of snow here reach...no kidding - 9 meters per season which lasts from mid November to the end of April or even later. This is the earliest you can start ski touring season in northern hemisphere. Prime time is from Mid November to mid January, just before the most coldest days come and waters of Baikal freeze till sun melts it again in April. The low temperatures make snow as light as dust, and frequent snowfalls come with at least 1 meter of fresh powder everytime, leavening the slopes pristine. Spring ski lovers will also be amused by snow quality and warmer temperatures in April and May. Ski Pro offers 8 day ski touring package lead by local IFMGA/UIAGM Guides in lake Baikal area which perfectly combines with SKI LUZHBA package to SKI TRANS-SIBERIA.
