Dear Friends!

Let us inform you that RUSSIAN BIG MOUNTAIN, the main event of FREERIDE in Russia will take place from 14 FEBRUARY to 17 FEBRUARY 2001.


Let us tell you that a bit earlier we wanted to change the area and to comp in another region of Caucasus - in Krasnaya Polyana for making the visit of participants of last year competitions more interesting, in order you would discover new areas, new mountains. But having visited now this resort, we decided to refuse Krasnaya Polyana since the weather is warmer (because Black Sea is near), and therefore snow conditions are worst. That's why we decided to organize this year the Russian Big Mountain in the same area as last year, near Elbrus. The accommodation will be at the same resort, in the same hotel - "Cheghet" but the competitions will not be on the same mountains as last year but on the new ones, on new slopes. In this way we'll get the best option: we'll have excellent snow conditions - a lot of snow and will discover new mountains.

Right now the representatives of the Organizing Commitee returned back from Caucasus where studied the resorts near ELBRUS and we are to tell you that there is A LOT OF SNOW, it continue to snow by now, and the weather forecast is very good for January - it will snow and snow. Hence, we'll have much more good luck this season in comparison with last year. By mid of January I will go to Caucasus, Elbrus area for taking pictures there and will be able to send them by e-mail in order you'll have an idea about the mountains/slopes where we'll ski.

If you need invitations for our event don't hesitate - contact us, we'll be happy to support you sending letters of invitation by telex to Russian Consulates in your countries.

Looking forward to hear from you soon.

Best regards,

Competition Director
