Tour description

What we offer is a sheer thrill on the best spots of Chornohora mountain range. We have one day to make a comfortable and unhasting ascending and some warm-up on the slopes of Kedrovatyi Pohorilets. Next two days we are making awesome lines on the fresh powder of Mt. Rebra (2001 m) and Mt. Shpytsi (1863 m). The last day we return skiing down via Mt. Brebeneskul (2038 m), Mt. Menchul (1998 m) and Chufrova mountain meadow.

  • Our adventure starts at the base camp located at the foot of Mt. Rebra (2001 m) in the area as if it was purposely created for extreme skiing. It’s a place where Chornohora mountain range and its spurs form a circus sheltered on all three sides. That establishes perfect conditions for snow gathering and preserving it from November to May.
  • Comfortable rest in a Warm Tent with an oven nearby the slopes, home-style delicious dishes are waiting for riders after freeride skiing. Convenient location enables reduction of stuff weight at the ascending stage and set your entire mind on freeriding.
  • Slopes various by their gradients and expositions allow choosing routes with different levels of difficulty even for beginners.
  • Mt. Shpytsi (1863 m) between the cliffs of which one can always find a fresh powder and a сolossal long slope of Mt. Rebra (2001 m) are considered to be special treats of this location.
  • Highland BBQ party near a camp fire emphasizes the adrenaline rush and enhances skiing pleasure.
  • Descent is one more adventure including ski touring along the mountain range and Menchul skiing down.
  • attention! The tour takes place in the border area, so, please, do not forget about travelling passport. It’s obligatory.
