Siberia has been always famous for its long and frosty winters.
Winter is, after all, the most Russian of
seasons, a time of fur coats, sleigh-rides and chilled vodka. Even in coldest
months of December - January city life goes on, on the nice days people enjoy
outdoor activities and winter sports. Most of the winter, it is about -15, -17 °C
during a day, which is OK to be out if you have proper clothes for subzero
temperature. Usually the layer of snow out in the plains and forests is 50 cm
to 1.5 meter, though in the mountains it may reach 2 - 3 meters.
The best time to come is from mid February till mid April,
when the day temperature rise from -10 to +2 °C, weather is sunny and calm.
Days are fairly long, there is still a lot of snow for skiing, Baikal is frozen and
a meter thick ice is incredible to walk or skate on.
