ELBRUS CAN BECOME THE MOST REQUESTED AND POPULAR MOUNTAIN SPORTS RESORT IN THE WORLD

M.Ch. Zalihanov

Last century mountain tourism and ski mountaineering became widespread in all developed Western countries. To our country the population’s craving for mountains and mountains sports came with some delay. During the Soviet period tourist centers, mountaineering camps, and a bit later, cable ways with ski centers, hotels, etc. were built in the Caucasus. The dissolution of the USSR prevented the further development of this process. Following the dissolution of the country the political situation in Checheno-Ingushetia and Kabardino-Balkaria also hindered the development of rich recreational resources of the highest European mountain- Elbrus. That time foreign and our tourists, as well as mountain skiers, preferred foreign sports centers to high-crime Caucasus. Currently the situation has settled down and native and foreign alpinists, tourists and mountain skiers once again come here. That enables the further promotion of this important field of livelihoods in the Caucasian republics of the Russian Federation, the sustainable development of their mountain territories.
