The article considers heave metals (HM) concentration interaction with the heavy snowfalls according to the season layer of the snow-firn thickness data on the southern Elbrus slope on 4000 m over sea level. The research revealed the closest interaction between the maximal HM concentration in the seasonal snow-firn thickness and the intensive precipitations more than 10 mm. The main source of HM were the solid precipitations. 4000 meters over sea level correspond to the middle troposphere, but in winter the atmosphere is less contaminated, the Caucasus undersurface slopes to 3000 m, the HM occurrence nature becomes more clear.
