Food and accommodation

All accommodation and all your meals are included in the trip cost. The hotel in the Baksan Valley is pleasantly situated and friendly; rooms are double, facilities are en-suite but some being shared between two rooms. Accommodation in Adyr-su Valley is in the lodge of Ullu-Tau Alpine Camp - totally for 25-28 people. This is the only place you can accommodate in springtime in the area. For the ski-touring the camp will provide lights snack. You have not except hotel comfort at the alpine camp but fantastic ski-touring routs with unbroken slopes and superb views will compensate it. On Elbrus itself we stay in the huts with mattresses. Food while staying at the mountain hut on Elbrus is prepared by our own cooks from fresh foods supplemented by supplies. As the variety of foods available in Russia is rather limited we recommend that you bring with you a small selection of "goodies" - chocolates, nuts etc. which you are particularly fond of. These will be useful especially at times when the altitude might reduce your appetite for main meals or when you need energy for the final summit push.
