Marshals's team arrived to the Elbrus region on September 18. Yesterday we go to acclimatize to Cheget. Under Cheget shoulde we met last year's champion of  Elbrus Race - Sergey Fursov. He led a group to Cheget. In the evening gathered in the Elba hotel. Participants are actively preparing for the race. Sergei Surmonin and Boris S. Korshunov have the night on the Saddle. Marslals Vitaly Balyukin and Victor Kamenskih few days ago did a great route on Elbrus and also spent the night on the Saddle (they were forced to spend the night in a hut, because of bad weather. That mean they used the Saddle hut exactly as it was built for!!! They both were very happy of that night).

American Charles and Indonesian Dody also acclimatized - climbed up to Priyut11.

Information on the opening event: the opening will be held at the the same  place (uner old Azau ski lift station) on 20 September at 11 o'clock.
