Elbrus is Europe�s highest
summit, yet is one of more accessible high-altitude peaks. This
trip provides fine skiing both in the vicinity of Elbrus and on
the mountain itself. There are runs of varying difficulty - for
top skiers and for �greenhorns� (novices). Different ski descents
are up to 15 km long. They all are very interesting and
breathtaking - along Mt. Elbrus and other exellent slopes.
Indisputably, Elbrus is wonderful place for relaxation and skiing.
