Elbrus and Cheget Mountain statistics

This season

New season improvements

There are still queues at lifts, but most of the local snowboarders just pay $5-$10 to a ratrack driver and it brings them up anywhere they want, so they don't have to wait in the lift queues. And it's quite good, because then you can choose any starting point you wish.
