On the Elbrus slopes a new line of a gondola ski lift had been opened in Late December. Its upper station is situated on 3846 m above sea level.
It was constructed by the same POMA ski lift company (France).
The new gondola ski lift is able to lift up to 1500 people per hour. 8-pax gondolas are spacy and comfortable. Now you can come up to 3846 m ans ski dowm to 2300 m. Over 10 km of a on-piste ski traces are now available on Elbrus. You can sli all year round as the ski trace under the new gondola lift lies upon the Garabashi glacier.
After the New Year holidays with a great number of skiers and tourista coming to the Elbrus region there will be a lower ski season with lower prices and less people on the mountain.
