Cat skiing is Siberia
Priiskovoe village is located in the spurs of Kuznetsk Alatau near the border of Khakassia and the Kemerovo region. Throughout the century, the village was attracted by gold diggers who founded the mine. Nowadays, the Priiskovoe still attracts people by its real gold - famous Siberian cold smoke powder. It is located at an altitude of 800 meters and is surrounded by mountains with a height up to 1500 meters. Geography of the region contributes to the fact that the snow here begins to fall abundantly in September-October, thus guaranteeing 100% powder skiing/boarding for the rest of the months.
Our cat skiing followed by RMGA guides will take place on open bowls, fields and forest terrain. Every day we will ski 8-12 runs, depending on the weather and the condition of the group. The relief is suitable for experienced riders and for those who are just starting to make their first steps in freeride. We will be happy to share our knowledge and techniques with you.
WHY CAT SKIING?
Cat skiing is comparable to heli-skiing but it costs way less and you ski every day. No down days due to weather! Similar to heli-skiing, the skiers are led by a ski guide and followed by a tail guide. You can expect to ski every day and you will ski between 2500 to 3500 metres per day.
