The High Tatras in February

Hello everyone. I've a holiday in February and I have been doing some research on the High Tatras, mostly from this website and what people have told me. You people are the wise ones, teach me!

My experience:

I'm a good scrambler and hiker, done a bit of lead climbing as well (nothing more than VS). I've been climbing since 2009 when I went to university but never intensively. I've been to Scotland on three ...

Mer de Glace Ladders

I'll be in Chamonix next year. The ladders down onto the Mer de Glace, do folk attach on to the ladders as the desend or just crack on and climb down?

I've heard differing themes, so wondering if there was an etiquette in case those around start making noises about not doing it the right way?

Any particular knots used?

A Chamonix le 12 décembre

What should I do in Chamonix Friday?

I wanted to be guided for some hors piste Ski but not sure about the conditions... not much snow.
Is climbing Mont Blanc a good idea in the current and forecasted conditions?
What would be a good, relatively ez and with lots of ascent mountaineering climb?
Would the Mont Blanc marathon course be runnable or at least safe?

Thanks for helping.

Elbrus in winter

Hello, I was wondering what is all of your opinions on attempting Mt. Elbrus in winter?

I am already in Russia and transportation to the area isn't a problem. Do they physically close it down and not let people up there until the season officially starts? Is an expert guide kinda mandatory? I'm wanting to do this over the 10 days I get for Christmas break.
