Please submit any useful information about climbing Mount Elbrus that may be useful to other climbers. Consider things such as access and accommodation at the base of Mount Elbrus, as well as the logistics of climbing to the summit.
I was on Elbrus twice this summer, first time around 7-11 June and the snow was very low, maybe unseasonably but still the summit was not made. On our decent the snow was pretty much back to base camp. Second time i arrived base camp on 7th August and summit on 13 August. usual winds on approach to the saddle but clear weather. This was the case for all 4 groups departing mid July and roughly every 12 days until the 13 August.
Hi - I would like to know the general weather conditions on Mt. Elbrus in August. Could you please help me with that?
Can you tell me what the weather is like for the north side of Elbrus in July and August at the base and high camp areas?
Joel, the info you require is at snow-forecast. You can see detailed hindcasts for different elevations of Elbrus for recent years but this part of snow-forecast.com is for members only.
Assuming you are not a member of that site, I can't create a free login unless you provide a valid email address. Note that this info is only available for a handful of mountains that are not at ski resorts.
For Elbrus, you are in luck.
