Join me for a unique ski trip around the Elbrus Region, and discover some of the greatest spots of the Central Caucasus.

Many skiers and climbers come to the Elbrus region in spring, specially during the months of April and May. Then, you can enjoy skiing on the South part of Mount Elbrus and the North side of Mount Cheget.

The area is also great for freeride skiing lovers.

For those who enjoy ski touring, Mont Kogutai (3800m) is another very good option. You can reach the summit by ski and the descent on Cheget field is incredible: 12 kilometers of great riding!

For skiing in other places of this region is essential to go with a certified guide, because the terrain can be dangerous.

The Adyr-su Valley, in the South of Baksan valley, is also good spot for ski touring lovers. The highest point of this region is Mount Djailyak (4533 m). There’s usually enough snow until the beginning of the summer. This is due to its exposure (north faces) and altitudes (between 2000 and 4000 meters).

You will need to 2 months to require a permit for going on a trip there. Here are some routes that I enjoy in Adyr-su Valley:

  • Chot Chat summit (3800m);
  • Garvash pass (3700m);
  • Granovskogo pass (3800m);
  • Golubeva pass (3760m);

All those routes are on glacier, so you’ll need to bring your ice equipment and rescue kit.

Besides, we can combine our trip with a traverse from the south to the north side of Mount Elbrus (5642 m), as well as reaching its summit on the west or east side.

Please get in touch with me if you need more information about this region and/or if you want to organize several days of good skiing in this remote area where very few people go skiing.

Furthermore, you can check some other trips I organize in the Russian Federation, like Heliskiing around Elbrus & Kazbek and Ski touring in the Kola Peninsula.
