From Camp 2 to Camp 1 Eugene Voronov went by snowboard. We all were frozen at Camp 2 and tired as dogs. Only Eugene hovered over the steep slopes like a bird.

The team:

Catherine Pozdeeva (Khanty-Mansiysk), George Kuzmin (Moscow, Russia), Anatoly Mensky (Tyumen), Cyril Muraviev (St. Petersburg) and Oleg Pimenov (Latvia, Russia). Leader: Alex Abramov.
