CLIMA AND SNOW CONDITIONS: The weather conditions in the country are quite similar throughout the area. Continental climate with hot summers and harsh winters with very low humidity. The minimum temperatures in the Luzhba area in December are around -10/-15°C. A very favorable condition for maintaining dusty snows for long time. Since mid-January, very low temperatures are frequent (-30°C).

In the areas we will explore the quality of the snow is unique, very deep and dry. It is common to sink more than 50 cm. It is therefore recommended to have with us fat skis (Minimum 100mm under the boot).
