8-day splitboarding trip in Mount Elbrus

Tobias, an IFMGA certified mountain guide, is eager to join you on this 8-day splitboarding adventure to the highest peak in Europe: Mount Elbrus (5642 m)

Offer periodApr, May
Skill LevelAdvanced

Type of tripNot specified


There it is: the highest mountain in Europe is a dormant volcano ready to receive you in its snowy arms. The 5642 meters on the west summit and the 5621 meters on the eastern side of Mount Elbrus, in Russia, are perfect spots to place our adventure.

This program goes like this: we meet in Moscow, then transfer to Mineralny Vody and afterwards to Tereskol. There, we acclimatize enjoying several splitboarding tours on the main ridge of the Caucasus. The incredible descents and views are enough to make you wish you can stay forever!

After that, we get to splitboard on the Soldatsky Pass and on the Pastucov rocks at 4700 m. On day 6, we start the ascent to the west summit of Mount Elbrus, at 5642 m. There, we get to marvel at unique panoramas and to snowboard our way down, on fast descents that will give you adrenaline rushes.

I want to provide the best experience ever on an unparalleled spot. Fortunately, I have the tools to do so, as a professional in these activities. You only need to have a strong background in splitboarding and to maintain a good physical condition to join.

Do not wait another second. Mount Elbrus is there for you to enjoy it! You just need to sign up and book it. I will take care of the rest.

Do you want to splitboard on other amazing spots? I have a one week program from Chamonix to Zermatt via the Haute Route.

About the guide

guide profile img

I am a IFMGA certified mountain guide and I'm passionated about nature. I was born in 1977 and before entering in the mountain life, I worked as a teacher in Borg Lienz.

I started training as a canyoning guide 15 years ago. Since 2009, I have also trained with canyoning leaders in Carinthia. Additionally, I have been on the road as a mountain and ski instructor. During the summers, I have guided a lot in Switzerland, where I took my guests to many mountains over 4000 meters high. My “motto” in the mountains and in life has always been the same: “Never stop exploring”

I work now for Carnicoalpin where our main objective is leading and accompanying you on steep mountains and great ski slopes with a particular focus set on safety.

For more information, please feel free to contact me. We can discuss about your wishes and the different options I offer. I will be really happy to be your guide and share a great moment with you!
