During winter fields expeditions 2000-2010 in Elbrus region seasonally freezing and main cryogenic processes in highland were studied. We detected, some cold winter thickness of active layer (seasonally freezing layer) can amount 1,5 m. Interaction between seasonally freezing, snowdepthand altitudewas studied. For example, on the south are slope of Elbrus by bellow below altitude of2450 m and at a thickness of snow more than 1 m the seasonally freezing wasn't observed. In addition, main cryogenic processes of Elbrus region were studied.
