Mike from Russia writes:

The chairs and the rope replaced a year ago or so, so it is now more stable, but still very slow.
Conditions are very tough here; wind and steep slopes, never groomed. But when snowy it gives you incredible freeride. Avalanches are common here so you should know where and when to go.
It's tough, but cheap and excellent food pays off.
