You’ll arrive in Milan, and we’ll all meet at the airport before transferring to a nearby hotel.
We’ll start early and make our way to Bolzano. It’ll take 4 hours to reach Bolzano, then we’ll continue on to Merano before arriving at Martell Valley. We’ll hike from there to Zufall Hut, which sits at 2265m. This will be our home for two nights.
We’ll spend our third day ski touring the beautiful Mt.Pederspitze (3309m), or Mt.Madritschspitz (3265m). We’ll head downhill at the end of the day to Zufall Hut.
On the fourth day, we’ll ski to the next hut, the Marteller Hut (2610m). From there, we’ll do a ski ascent to Mt. Kollkuppe Marmota (3330m) before a downhill return to the Marteller Hut.

Day six will be the longest and most difficult day. We’ll tour to two peaks, Mt. Zufallspitzenat at 3757m, and then Mt.Cevadale (3769m). We’ll finish with a downhill run to the Casati Hut (3254m). If conditions are not good, we’ll ski directly to the Casati Hut.
On day seven, we’ll tour to the Branca Hut (2487m) via Mt.Pasquale at 3553m, or along the Cedec Valley. We’ll spend two nights in the Branca Hut.
On this day, we’ll visit Mt.Palon de la Mare at 3685m, Mt.Vioz at 3645m, or Mt.Tresero at 3594m. We’ll finish up at Branca Hut.

I'm an IFMGA-certified guide and have been guiding for the past 15 years.
I got the chance to do beautiful ascents like the Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, Mont Cook, McKinley, 7000m Peaks in ex-USSR, technical climbing In the Caucasus, new climbing routes in the USA, ski-touring in Alps, Russia etc.
I'm an expert in the Elbrus region. I know every corner of it and will be happy to guide you to the summit, at 5.642m high, skiing or walking.
Please get in touch with me and let's leave together for a wonderful adventure in the incredible Caucasus mountain range!
I work together with a group of guides, so if I'm not available, either Nikolay or Victor will guide you!
My favorite saying: "We will either find a way, or make one".
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
