Ski Kamchatka 2013 - overview of our activities in April-May 2013

We have returned from excellent skialpinism trip (April 25 – May 12) to Kamchatka-peninsula in May 12. From the skiing point of view the trip was excellent, as we did not use ski boot only during our departure back to Europe in May 12. Besides the fact, that the weather was not mostly pleasant, we succeed with four higher active and non-active volcanos, and with many smaller peaks. Some results: probably the first skiing from volcano Bakening (2278 m), Slovak men & women first skiing + Czech women first skiing from volcano Korjakskij (3456 m), etc. The trip was prepared by MountainSki.cz & Společnost Medici.

We were five: Haute Route by EUROwoman's heart

Editorial Recollections. – 12:39 pm Email received: „Do you want to go on the Haute Route?“ 12:40 pm: „Yeah“. 12:41 pm, wait; let me think about this, I have NO: money, time, equipment and physical condition. However, it has always been a dream for everyone even if they kept it to themselves. In January I learned that it's pronounced Ótrůt in case I still wanted to say that to someone. The whole business plan is only spoiled by Internet voting for potential participants and whether they would take / invite women, especially someone like myself.

Heliskiing & heli asisted skitouring in British Columbia in April 2013

We have been in British Columbia, Canada, from March 28 to April 8O. We stayed at CMH Galena lodge, where our task was to do heliski & heli asisted skitouring.

An international group of Czechs, Slovaks and Russians will go to Kamchatka-peninsula in the period of April 25 – May 12, 2013. We have mainly focused with our skis on volcanos in the north and south from Avacha bay. Secondly, we climb smaller peaks around, warm-up in some hot springs and eat some salmons. This is our fourth skialpinism trip to Kamchatka-peninsula. This trip is supported by: Tilak, Boatpark, Voda hory, Quillcz.cz and Spolecnost Medici.

Ski-touring & snowboard trip to Titov vrv (2748 m) in the Republic of Macedonia

During our winter stay in Macedonia we realized a whole day long trip from Popova Šapka to the second highest Macedonian summit Titov vrv (2748 m) in March 5, 2013. The weather was marvelous – sun, clear sky and almost no wind. Our group consisting of 25 people with ski-touring equipment, snowboards & standard skis met at the bottom station of the double-chairlift. We didn't want to spend time ascending to the summit of Antena, se we used chairlift.
