I'm visiting Gudauri on February 18th to 26th and I would be interested in doing some ski mountaineering in the area. Is Mt. Kazbek too early in the season to attempt? Are all of the 4000ers in the area at least 2-day trip away (approach on day 1, summit following morning)?
I have extensive ski mountaineering experience, also twice from altitudes above 7000m. I will also bring all necessary equipment but private guides may offer their services.
