Skitur in Arkhyz
10.03.2022 - 20.03.2022
Winter does not stand still, and the calendar gently hints that March is the first month of spring after all. In search of good snow we climb higher than Abkhazia and Krasnaya Polyana - to Arkhyz. Comfortable altitude, interesting relief and proximity to the sea make us come here for the third time in a row and, as always, each of our trips stays in our memories forever.
Location and format
The resort of Arkhyz, located on the northern spur of the Main Caucasus Range. Ski touring and splitboarding with and without ropeways. A little-known, unpopular place yet :)
Plan of the programme

13 March

Arrival in Mineralnye Vody, transfer. Check-in, evening briefing


March 14 - 19

Trekking in Arkhyz with use of ski lifts, snowmobiles, pick up by cross-country vehicles to the start and exit points. Easy approaches, untouched fields and stunning beauty and silence of the mountains, surrounding us and gorgeous air. In the middle of the programme we do obligatory avalanche training, showing the guides how to locate, search for and dig out the victims.



March 20

Short day - party at the barbecue area by the house with good music, soulful toasts under the starry sky.



21 March

Departure, transfer to the airport. With those departing late, visit Kislovodsk and some beautiful place along the way.

Accommodation
Large house with living room, all amenities. A nice, quiet place away from the crowds of tourists. We have a barbecue area with awning, parking, WiFi. Detailed photos of the house are available.
Nutrition
The kitchen at home, but there are many good cafés and restaurants with quality food on the mountain. If we go away from resorts we go to local cafes or buy and cook grilled dinner, even if it's daily. Caucasus after all :)
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 tourists who have visited most of the iconic places on the globe before - Arkhyz is one of the best for ski touring and splitboarding. A huge region for ski touring - endless untouched fields and couloirs of different lengths and exposures, something we know how to make!
Equipment
A classic skiturist or splitboarder's kit, plus an avalanche kit. 5-watt digital radios with tangents, full avalanche kit. Telescopic poles, thermos. Set of light thermal underwear, goggles or cap, sunglasses, SPF30+ sunscreen.
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.
