Some info about Cat Skiing in Priiskovy, Siberia (https://priiskovy.com/).

At the end of summer 2019 we discuss where we would go skiing this winter. Japan was high on the list and some in the gang went to Niseko (again). We (Björn, Per and Daniel) wanted to try something different and started checking out Georgia and Cat Skiing there. Unfortunately, the first choice was fully booked and the second choice sounded a bit sketchy - "We think we will have the Hotel ready when winter comes" ... so we checked on. Daniel came up with the somewhat odd place Priiskovy in Siberia that no one had heard of. After much research and discussion we concluded that it was probably OK and we would not quit as organ donors if we went there.
So afterwards I can say that I haven't ridden as much untracked depth / powder snow since I was seasonal about 30+ years ago.

Cost
Flight ARL-Moscow-Krasnoyarsk approx. 6 tkr.
Full board 7 days including Cat and everything. Ca. 14 tkr.
Other cost - Beer for the sauna.

Trip
ARL -> Moscow approx. 2 hours, Moscow -> Krasnoyarsk approx. 4.5 hours. Transfer Krasnoyarsk -> Priiskovy (in a small bus that travels skitfort on slippery winter roads) approx. 6 hours. Quite a long travel time - recommend not to make the whole trip at once but instead split the trip with overnight stay.

accommodation
A Lodge (a former hospital, Bolnichka) in the small village of Priiskovy. Two floors, up to 45 guests, 4 shared showers, 3 shared toilets… Just beds, possibility of 1 - 4 pers / room.

Food
Full board, breakfast and lunch on the slopes with the same cheese / bread / spotted sausage / chai etc. - it was a bit hectic but was perfectly OK. Dinner -> this is not French cuisine (far away), but you get measured.

Skiing
Absolutely outstanding !!! When we got there it hadn't snowed in a long time - we still went untracked every ride. Then came the snow and then we went untracked again :) Incredibly good!

Other
Earlier, gold ore was mined in Priiskovy (until the late 1990s), today we feed on us tourists. There are 3 more companies that do Cat Skiing, but we didn't see much of them. You drive a lot of scooters here - you build a new hotel and a new lift at the Meteo mountain. We think this place will look completely different in a few years. Now it is a strange mix of old dilapidated wooden houses (where people live) and new buildings. So the recommendation is to go there before you have the new concepts in operation.
