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!
