Luzhba, in fact it is not a village but only a small railway station located in the heart of the remote mountains of southern Siberia. Thanks to the heavy snowfalls and low temperatures, we will have the opportunity to ski on snow of rare and exceptional quality.
After the transfer from Novokuzntensk and the first two days skiing in Sereghesh, we will reach our refuge in Luzhba where we will stay for the remaining 4 days of skiing. Every day a different route in search of the best lines skiing on one of the most amazing snows on the planet.
Private groups (min 6 pax) can choose different dates depending on their needs. ( At least before of the 15th of January)
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).
