Freeride at Snow Valley mountain lodge. Kamchatka
Kamchatka is one of the most beautiful corners of the Earth and we have filmed these places more than once. Geysers, volcanoes, pristine forests and wild animals living in their natural habitat... To see it all and not to miss anything important, one has to ask for the help of the local experts. We have a longstanding cooperation with Kamchatka's reserves and national parks, and we have recently added Snow Valley Mountain Lodge to this list.
Snowboarding in Kamchatka is stunning. There are not so many places in the world where you can ride through the pristine wilderness with the view of volcanoes and along the slope of the volcano down to the ocean!
Snow Valley Mountain Lodge offers a wide range of activities for all tastes, including volcano freeriding and heliskiing. And that is how we met these guys, in the sky. We told them about the AirPano project, and they invited us to visit their lodge.
The feature of Snow Valley that we liked the most is the possibility to use a helicopter. It felt close to our spirit, so we came up with an idea to create a 360-video about freeriding in Kamchatka. We present to you the first part of the film. We would also like to share the official information about this mountain lodge for those who are interested in new places for snowboarding and skiing.
