Alex Abramov, from Georgia:
Today our group "Pink Skis" was finishing acclimatization and arranged snow and ice training on the slopes of Kazbek. We climbed 300 meters up to the chapel and then had fun walking on crampons, in rope teams and learning how to use ice axes. Tomorrow, early in the morning, we leave for the ascent. Now the wind is very strong - 50 km per hour, with gusts up to 70. But, thank God, the snow stopped falling yesterday. We hope for the best.
