Abhazia skitour and backcountry
January and February 2021
In search of new locations and interesting lines, fate throws us into the snowiest region of the Caucasus - Abkhazia and Krasnaya Polyana. We are organising a completely new, combined and very intense programme. And the proximity of the Black Sea, these magical mountains, comfort and low altitude will make this trip extraordinary by all parameters!
Location and format
Krasnaya Polyana resorts + base in Abkhazia. Freeride at the best resorts in the country + ski touring and splitboarding in a still little-known, unpopular place :)
Plan of the programme
- flight to Sochi airport, transfer to Krasnaya Polyana

- freeride or ski tour at Rosa Khutor, Alpika or Gorky Gorod resorts (old style)

-Transfer to the base - crossing the border, dyutik by car to the lake Ritsa, snowmobiling along the picturesque road to the base. Check-in, warming-up descent.

- Skitour in Abkhazia. With and without snowmobiles for a lift. Untouched fields, space forests, cushions and epic views.

- Departure from the base, transfer to the lake Ritsa. Change of transport, transfer to seashore: sea, shashlick, vino. In the evening to the checkpoint.

- Freeride or ski-ride at Krasnaya Polyana resorts.

- Next days at will.
Accommodation

A large, new, very comfortable base with a hot stove.


Everything is very cool: wooden winter house, several floors, river, generator, hot water every other day, etc.

From the base will be available slopes of all expositions, in "ski-in & ski-out" format. If necessary, we will use snowmobiles for a lift to the start point.

Depending on the weather conditions, we may consider an overnight stay at the higher base on the pass, with a view of the sea.

Nutrition
The food is prepared by the cook. It's worth saying that we always pay attention to the food - it has to be plentiful and varied. All the same, it's a ski tour. Plus thermos and snacks on the mountain. The wishes of vegetarians are taken into account! We take liquor and stuff with us, as a rule, on the border there is a dutyqiq with funny prices.
Participants
Skiturists and splitboarders with good equipment. It is necessary to know how to use avalanche equipment, but we will show that too. The format involves riding in one group, which will become a family for the time being. It's mandatory to dig pits, we're as much about safety as it is about good skiing.
Riding
According to many experienced hikers who have visited most of the iconic places on the globe before, this is one of the best.
Our menu has it all: unspoilt fields and couloirs, relict forest and cascades of snow cushions. What we know how to make!
At KP we will ride at Rosa Khutor, Gorki and Alpika on our secret passes, because we have been familiar with Krasnaya Polyana resorts long before the Olympics ;)
Equipment
Classic skiturist/splitboarder's kit, plus a harness and cats to go with it. Obligatory 5-watt digital radios with tangents, full avalanche equipment. Telescopic poles, thermos. In case of overnight stay in the lodge at the pass, we take sleeping bags.
Some features
There is sometimes no cell phone service.
Profit

Probably your best ride ever :)


Significant improvement in your skiing skills: line selection for ascents and descents, a multiple improvement in avalanche literacy. Raising ski touring skills "to the sky" and interacting with a cheerful team of others like you.


You'll gain 200% of health, good endurance and crystal clear head on the exit. Tasting the tastiest water, making a few attempts to breathe in this air, and making sure that the stars and the Milky Way don't just show well in August.

The programme includes

- transfer by minibus from the border to Lake Ritsa and back

- transfer by snowmobile from Lake Ritsa to the base and back

- Guide services for all days

- Accommodation and meals at the base.

The number of participants is 6.
IMPORTANT
By popular demand, I am considering increasing the days in the programme to increase the stay at the base.
