Mt. Elbrus: Reid & Team Make Some Turns from 16,000’

Acclimatization by Ski Doo is one advantage of having skis here on Mt. Elbrus. For a little morning activity on our rest day, we caught a snowmobile ride to 15,000’, and climbed up to 16,000’ in steady winds. We actually had some visibility on our descent this time and were able to enjoy the turns a bit more than yesterday’s whiteout run.

We spent the afternoon making preparations for an alpine start in the morning. If the forecast verifies, we’ll have a nice clearing trend throughout the morning and hopefully summitable conditions. We’re feeling psyched and ready.

Mt. Elbrus: Reid & Team Enjoy Acclimatization Ski Tour

Today we awoke to blue skies above and beautiful views of the mountain, but as we set off on our acclimatization ski tour, the clouds followed us. We spent the majority of the day in minimal visibility - the Elbrus ping pong ball. Strong solar radiation made for uncomfortably warm temps, which combined with the whiteout was a challenge to our motivation. But we persevered, and climbed to the top of Pastukhova Rocks at 15,500’.

We “skied by braille” back down the route to our camp and were greeted by Dasha our cook with delicious soup and fried chicken. A very successful acclimatization ski, despite the clouds…

Mt. Elbrus: Reid & Team Take Some Turns on the Mountain

We finally got to ski on Mt. Elbrus today! We had a nice acclimatization tour up to 14,000’ in wintry snow conditions. All that rain down low has equaled nice snow quality up high, and aside from the altitude our turns felt effortless.

This morning we did the three gondola “duffel shuffle” - nothing like ski lifts for approaching High Camp (beats walking!). We’ve got ourselves nicely situated at our home here at 12,600’. Everyone is feeling good and in good spirits. We’re psyched to go a bit higher tomorrow..

Mt. Elbrus: Reid & Team Acclimate in Cheget

Last night we slept to the sound of heavy rain, and this morning we awoke to the sight of heavy rain. We decided to let it subside before heading out on our acclimatization foray. Luckily it did, and we were able to get the blood flowing above 10,000’ with a little help from a chairlift. The clouds partially broke for a moment in time, and we were treated to our first glimpse of Mt. Elbrus. We are ready to go set up shop on its lower flanks starting tomorrow, and most excitingly put skis on our feet. Stay tuned…

Mt. Elbrus: Reid & Team Arrive in the Mountains

A van ride, an airplane ride, another van ride, and we’re in Cheget. Super smooth sailing through our travels today, ski bags and all. Yuri is the local Russian guide who will be joining us on Mt. Elbrus, and he greeted us with a warm reception at the airport in Mineralyne Vody. We’re excited to finally be in the mountains.

Mt. Elbrus Ski: Reid & Team Explore Moscow

We had a great first day with our crew, stretching our legs on a city tour of Moscow. Our guide Victoria took us on a circuit of the Kremlin, Red Square and St. Basil’s Cathedral, after which we enjoyed a nice lunch at “the restaurant of many menus”. All is great with us.

Kerry!!!  Wish I could be climbing next to right now! ...and not just to carry your tent ;) Also, so far all the comments are for you. Did you send out bribes because I didn’t get my share?  I’m on venmo. 

You got this!  Can’t wait to see you on the summit.

Miss and love you so much! Good luck on the climb. Stay safe. Say hi to Allison!

Chile Ski: Reid & Team Termas Bound

As promised, the storm hit Araucania last night. After a nice evening sunset on Villarrica, the rain came. We retreated from our camp this morning with heavy wet snowflakes falling from the sky, very happy to not be high up on Lanin. Now we are on our way to Peumayen, a beautiful lodge and termas (hot springs) outside of Pucon. This is our last night in Chile, and one to celebrate - this trip has been top notch. Great crew, great skiing conditions, a lot of great weather… Every year I’m always amazed how fast this trip goes.

Tomorrow we head for the airport and home to the US. Thanks for following along!

Chile Ski: Reid & Team Ski Some New Terrain on Villarrica

With a gnarly low pressure system poised to strike our intended high camp on Lanin, in my experience the windiest mountain in the world, we decided a more prudent plan would be to focus our efforts on skiing some new terrain on Villarrica. This meant foregoing our two day attempt on Lanin (with the forecast, our odds of summiting were minuscule) so with a team consensus we decided to spend an evening camped on Villarrica instead.

Today we traversed around the mountain to the east and found a very long run down snaky lava tubes full of corn snow. We skied three runs today totaling 5800 vertical feet, and now we’re about to have dinner at our Villarrica camp. Another fun day in Chile - hoping the weather is merciful tomorrow.
