Elbrus resort will officially open the ski season

On November 30, the official opening of the 50th anniversary of the ski season will take place in the Elbrus resort,- reports the press service of the head and government of Kabardino-Balkaria Republic.

For the first time, the cable car was launched here 50 years ago, on January 12, 1970. Since then, ski slopes on the highest mountain of Europe annually attract thousands of sports and outdoor enthusiasts.

On the opening day of the season, all visitors will find a pleasant bonus - the gondola cable car will operate for free from 11:00 to 17:00.

Under favorable snow conditions, it is planned to prepare the maximum number of tracks. However, in case of prolonged warm weather and lack of snow cover, the opening date will be rescheduled.

The festival program includes open amateur skiing competitions, as well as a massive retro-style carnival race in ski suits from the times of the USSR. The holiday will end with fireworks in the glade of Azau.
