2011 Elbrus Season!

On the approach. Anatoliy Savejko photo

Elbrus season is just around the corner! The snowy slopes of the highest peak in Europe awaits climbers and skiers alike. We've have three trip dates available in June and July, with the Elbrus Ski Descent option on our June 19th trip. Skiers can join us for some great schussing down the slopes of this 18,450 foot peak! And climbers can acclimatize on Elbrus on our July 17th trip and then immediately afterwards climb Kilimanjaro on our Elbrus and Kilimanjaro Combo for a Seven Summits whirlwind!

You have probably heard from our many recent blogs about our client favorite guide Ossy Freire who led the Elbrus climbs last year. He will be joining us again for all three climbs of Elbrus! Climbers love the great stories Ossy has to tell about his climbing adventures in Asia and South America. His encouraging words help climbers achieve their goals and keep a great outlook on the difficult climb ahead.

"Ossy was not only a great guide but he was a friend to myself and all of the climbers on the trip. Beacuse of him, I will book another trip with Ossy and Mountain Madness in the future." ~ Fred M. Elbrus '10

In a continuing effort to improve upon our trips, we found a new hotel located directly across from the Kremlin at the Assembleya Nikitskaya! This four star small hotel will provide a comfortable and relaxing experience before and after your summit climb. The suites offer great views of the country's capital and it's central location makes it easy to explore the city on your down time.

Check out the Elbrus Ski video if you haven't already seen it! We hope to see you on the slopes!
