Mt. Elbrus Ski: Reid & Team Set Up on Mountain, Take Some Turns

Thursday, June 20, 2019 - 5:42 PM PT

Yesterday we had a nice hike at the Cheget ski area, reaching 10,000’ and getting some beautiful views of the Caucasus.

Today we woke up at 6,800’ and by early afternoon had ski toured up to 14,000’. This was with the help of three gondolas that we shuffled all our gear on and off, en route to our camp here on the mountain. One of my favorite days on these trips is the first day we get to ski - a reminder of why we’ve come all this way with all these heavy bags. Everyone was psyched to ski today. I think we’ll do it again tomorrow…

It’s good to finally be in position here on Mt. Elbrus. Acclimatization and rest is the plan for the next couple days.
