Full description

Snowshoes are ancient contraptions made for walking on snow. Winter forests and mountains are gorgeous, but are quite hard to navigate through due to being cowered in deep snow, and snowshoes are just the things to help you not stay at home and enjoy the great winter outdoors.

Who uses them nowadays? Mainly hunters, tourists and geologists. In western countries, there is a whole snowshoeing industry! Many people are passionate about walking in snowy forests and some even run like that!

Why is it worth trying? This is a peculiar mix of feelings: something between excitement of a hunter, anticipation of discovery and the ability to run like a snow leopard! This makes you feel like a true adventurer! It is also easy and inexpensive and so is available to everyone.

We begin at the Gorny Pikhtovy Refuge (1,600m, upper Gazprom “Laura” cable car station). We’ll descent along the skiing track and immediately get to the forest. Here begins the winter fairytale – 40-meter high fir trees with their branches bent under a thick layer of snow, and tracks of wild animals on the ground. It’s quite possible to meet hares, foxes, raccoons or even chamois (a type of wild mountain goat)! On our way, we will stumble upon gorgeous sceneries of Main Caucasian ridge peaks.

Got bored walking around ski resort area and want to dissolve in nature? Then this experience is just what you need!
