Down fog and clouds, over 1300 m sunny weather, for a pity, the summit itself was in a fog. Skiing through "Gate" was on very icy surface, lower part was excellent. More details at: http://www.mountainski.eu/191/ski-kamchatka-2013-overview-of-our-activities-in-april-may-2013
Nice climbing on skis and crampoons. Extremely strong wind on the summit. Different variations of ski descents.
Summer climb. Crampons were useful, but not essential. Great view from summit.
The route up to approximately 2000 meters was climbed on skis, then in narrow steep couloir crampoons and skis on backpacks. Excellent weather and snow condition!. Only first 250 meters were pretty icy and gliable, then skiing in high speed and middle and long turns. Viljuchinskij brings best skiing at Kamchatka-peninsula.
