Not for everyone, but it's the masses that don't need it. Most of my friends asked: "Why do you need it, to drag yourself up the mountain for 3 hours, for the sake of 15 minutes downhill? In terms of regulations it was very correct to walk a little on the day of arrival and work out the turns, I think it is possible to devote this day in principle to training, if a similar group will be, all the same hesitated the second day, in the end broken bindings Dimas, with me in general a separate story, I had to build and dismantle the split 50 times this day, not to slow down then in the following.
Very unique without so many people, infrastructure, etc., huge uniqueness with such a relatively good transport accessibility.
The beauty of nature is unparalleled, there are plenty of opportunities to go skiing, even with the presence of megascalers who met us on arrival.
The work of the guide.
No complaints, everything was clear and to the point, with an emphasis on the main aspect-safety. As I wrote, it was possible to be more engaged in the first day, to go with a reconnaissance, to check snow, without inundation by skiing.
Only good. Unusual experience of skiing, ski-touring. The slopes and the snow is awesome, great team and atmosphere. I would gladly come again. I should add that of course it's better to go straight from Kuznya, you can take the train-electric trains and prolong the program for a day or two, making a break after 2-3rd day of ski tour or half-day relaxation with a sauna, the change of regime and time felt, loads, it was a breaking day, though not critical. Call, more).
