Important information

· The best time to enjoy ski touring in Elbrus region is in late March and during April (from North Side - April and May) when it is already not that cold and it is snowing a lot. It is possible to do a ski ascent of Mt. Elbrus in May and even in June, but there will be no snow in the lower parts of the route.

· Equipment. For the ski touring part you will need your normal skiing equipment plus special boots and skis for ski touring, helmet, crampons, ski crampons, pips (avalanche transceivers), snow probe and snow shovel. You can hire all equipment on the spot. Please, inform us in advance.

· Who are the guides? Our guides have been leading ski touring groups for years in this area. They know all the potential avalanche threats on the routes, how to avoid them and how to act in case of emergency. All our guides speak English and have radios and satellite phones. Guide-to-client ratio on ski touring part is 1:5; on the summit day on Mt. Elbrus the ratio is 1:3.

· Climbing Mt. Elbrus. You will gain very good physical condition and acclimatization after several days on ski touring. This will allow you to climb Mt. Elbrus. Success depends mainly on the weather. Sometimes in spring the snow is blown off the slope starting from the Lenz Rocks (4600m) and bare ice shows. In this case we leave the skis, put on the crampons, and the guide can decide that belaying is necessary. In May and June the snow conditions on Mount Elbrus make it possible to do a full ski ascent.

· Experience and skills. Previous ski touring experience is very important, because taking part in a ski touring trip requires knowledge of special techniques of ascent and excellent skiing skills, because participants don’t have to wait for each other to come up or ride down.
