The Kozelsky is an extinct dilapidated volcano 2190 m high that is situated 30 km from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The Kozelsky is located to the right of the Avachinsky Volcano if looking from the city, and is considered to be a “domestic” volcano. This is the closest to the Pacific Ocean volcano, one can see the coast of Kamchatka from its summit. Once the Kozelsky reached the height of 2700 meters and stood even with the Avachinsky, but powerful eruptions destroyed its top and formed 3 summits — Kupol (Dome), Zoob (Tooth) and Vostochnaya (Eastern). In summer the volcano is interesting for its vast slag fields and a glacier in the crater. There are also some mountaineering routes. As soon as the slopes become covered with snow mountain skiers and snowboarders assemble at the Kozelsky. There is a ski training base with a bar lift situated on the slope at the altitude of 850 m. You’ll be taken to the untouched slopes of the volcano by snowmobiles. The descent is quite steep — 35 degrees, while the trails are 4–6 km long.

Tour program


Gathering of the participants

We meet at the appointed place, get acquainted, check gear and drive to the place where we change to snowmobiles.


Transfer to the bottom of the volcano

After getting safety instructions and snowmobile training we drive to the bottom of the Kozelsky Volcano. We’ll make stops along the way to drink some tea and take pictures — the panorama of the Pacific Ocean and the Nalychevo Valley will be visible from there.


Freeriding at the Kozelsky

We’ll be taken by snowmobiles to the altitude of 1300 meters to rush down a steep slope. We’ll have 3 hours of freeriding with 5–6 descents. For those who’d like to take a breath we’ll have hot tea and sandwiches.


Transfer to the car park
Return to the city

Having got enough of freeriding we return to the car park by snowmobile. Then we drive back to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Estimated arrival time is 7 p.m.
