Great ski ascend & ski descend  Sucess!

A great sunny day before Den pobedy - we reached the summit in the sun from the left side as the wind was from PK to Nalychevo valley. We stayed on the summit for about 1 hour. Followingly fantastic skiing down to Alpika plus hut. Later on ski ascend and ski descend from Velblud.

Variation of classic route with skis  Sucess!

A group of 4 people had reached the summit in very low temperatures and strong wind. Skiing was on completely frozen icy no-smooth surface.

It took me 3h from hut base to summit on the normal route. Unfortunately summit was in clouds that day.
