This year our end of season ski tour took us away from the Alps to the Caucasus Mountains, Russia. A very different adventure, and the chance to climb the highest mountain in Europe - Mt Elbrus 5642m. Thanks Olly and Mountain Tracks for putting together a wonderful trip with great people.
Here's a 3 minute slide show (best viewed on YouTube) of the trip and a few stills to give you a taste...
