        Forward and up, and there,
        After all, these are our mountains,
        They will help us! "

    Very cool! In childhood, he loved to climb mountains, dreaming that the army would have something similar (but in reality - a cook in the kitchen))))
    I sincerely envy!

    The presence and expansion of the number and equipment of such units capable of solving problems in mountainous areas is very important. Their absence in the first and second Chechen led to the well-known losses and withdrawal of the militants from the persecution.
    It is gratifying to see how the guys work. Forward lads. Get ready properly.

    Pleased with the article. Drew attention to the ascent and skiing in a bundle.
    It is sometimes difficult for civilians to get into the head that skiing does not guarantee failure in cracks, although it sharply reduces the risk. I didn’t dive into the ski holes, but fell through my chest into the spring sap. If someone from directly interested people reads the article, then try the same thing in ordinary hard climbing boots. If a person is normally skiing, then skiing down them is quite realistic, even decently laden. When climbing uphill, they are no worse than a ski tour boots. Of course, not all types of bindings are suitable for them, but this is not a problem. When you switch to normal walking from the skis, rocks, the ski tour boots become terribly uncomfortable, even if relax clips.

    I saw how they competed. Excellent preparation, and the equipment is at the level. If the Elbrus mountains run like that, then the "hills" of the Alps are a piece of cake for them! good

      Zaur, did you go there, in the Alps? ((Although the snow there is as clear and predictable as in the Caucasus, the Alps are majestic mountains, one of the most beautiful in the world, with huge differences in altitude. These changes and climate , slightly injected into a stupor when grapes are harvested near the glaciers. In the Caucasus, neither anywhere, nor in the Elbrus region, nor in Bezengi, there are no such elevations as in the "hills" of the western Alps.

        He visited, and rolled, and went to the backcountry, and I hope I will once again.
        I agree that for the average person who came to rest, the differences are very decent, but for these guys this will not be an obstacle, learn to be healthy. After all, NATO is not asleep. soldier
        But I don’t agree about the understandability and predictability of snow in any mountains wink

          Nevertheless, I insist on my own, in the Alps and the Caucasus, the snow is similar and behaves relatively predictably. For example, the Tien Shan snow is more insidious.

    I confirm that I went to the mountains in sketches, a nightmare, but skiing back even with a backpack is normal. The main thing is that the backpack is sitting tight on the back. In general, such a training is very useful for our army, especially for those who serve in mountainous areas. The main thing is that the equipment is developed, decent or purchased, in sufficient quantities, not saved as always ...

    Well done! Just let it not be a "one-time" event, but a permanent one. And not for the "chosen honors", but for ALL mountain shooters.
