Hello! I climbed Elbrus after enjoyable 3 days spent on its glaciers skiing and trekking around, waiting for good weather. The best part was to ski Elbrus all way down. It took 8hrs up (with touring-skis on up to Pastuchov's Rocks) and only 1hr to ski the slopes down (with taking some rests during descent to avoid any form of "overoxygenation"). The waether was beautiful, sunny, with some clouds over the main range.
I would recommend to take skis up there since it is really fantastic!
Beautiful mountain, very impressive.
Also stunning trips to neighbouring valleys - Adyl-Su, Irik, Irikcat,...
Have a nice day! Dusan
