Avachinskaya Sopka is an active volcano of 2741 meters high. This volcano is the nearest one to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, it is located 30 km away from the city, and one of the most visited. The last eruption was recorded in 1991, but even now there are steam columns above its summit — Avacha is “breathing”.

The bottom and the slopes of the Avachinsky is a perfect spot for mountain skiing and snowboarding. Height difference here can reach 1700 meters, while the length of tracks is 5–7 km. Slopes of steepness from 15 to 35 degrees will be appreciated both professional freeriders and beginners. Snow cover of the volcano is dense due to strong winds, powder is rare.
