Hello RMI family. The team had a great flight from Moscow to Mineralyne Vody. We met Vladimir who will be with us on the mountain. Judging from his light heartedness, I am predicting we are going to have a few laughs.

We drove to Cheget, which is a destination for skiers. Our hotel is situated in the foothills of Mount Elbrus. I do have to admit my surprise. The last time I was on the south side of Elbrus I didn’t remember such a beautiful and charming hotel. I am glad we are staying two nights here to acclimatize and prepare gear. After all, there’s nothing wrong with First Class, even if it’s in the mountains.
