Caucasus Ski Traverse 1996

This party planned to make the first high level ski traverse of the central section of the Russian Caucasus from Verkhny Balkaria in the east to Terskol in the west. There were a number of team changes during the build-up to the trip, but eventually the above three completed the most complex and remote 136km central section between Bezingi Alpinists' Camp and Verkhny Baksan. This involved a total ascent of over 5,000m and took 11 days.
