With over 150 snow covered volcanoes, rising up to 3300 meters above sea level, Kamachatka, Russia has large potential as a back country ski destination. Infrastructure and the organization of sustainable back-country access needed a jump start. Combining efforts with the Kamchatka Ecotourism Society, Telemarkzone traveled into the back country to help provide a better understanding of what was needed to get sustainable back-country ski tourism off the ground. In this breath taking landscape, the potential for skiers willing to hike their way up the mountains is endless.
