Splitboarding in the middle of Siberia next to Lake Baikal the largest freshwater lake by volume in the world. A great place for early winter as generally the biggest snowfalls are in November and December.
The best place for split boarding around Lake Baikal is the valley of the Bolshoy Mamay river, just 10 km from Baikal lake. It has the greatest precipitation in the region and very interesting terrain.
Mamay valley has a special micro-climate; winters here are warmer than in other regions of Baikal. In the beginning of winter (up until January), before Baikal is covered with ice, precipitation is abundant. Combined with stable cold temperatures, it brings a huge quantity of light snow. The main skiing slopes are on a North-West aspect where the valley is protected by mountains on all sides so there are no strong winds at all, which guarantees good snow and excellent riding. The mountains in Mamay are generally 1600 meters high and the average run is about 700 meters vertical.
