"I want to personally thank you for visiting the RMH website. I welcome and appreciate you here. Being local on Mount Elbrus, I’m an International Mountain & Ski Guide with more than 10 years of ultimate guiding experience on Elbrus and more than 65 successful guided summit ascents. Having studied professional Mountain Guiding in Canada BC, and coming back home to the Caucasus Mountains, I was the first local on Elbrus to bring the International Mountain Guiding standards and the western knowledge to the Elbrus guiding industry.
I have put all my heart and soul into everything we do at RMH. We exist because every member of the crew is passionate about guiding on Mount Elbrus and RMH philosophy. Everything we do at RMH is a reflection of that passion. I’ve spent years forming the Dream Team of Guides. INNOVATION, RMH PRODUCT, and PASSION – that was my focus. We know, what is takes traveling to Russia across the ocean. There are lots of logistics and stresses coming with getting a Visa, organizing flights, and so on. Knowing and respecting that, we want to see every single RMH guest reaching the summit of Elbrus – the top of Europe. Safely, flawlessly and having fun. We work hard to maximize your safety, comfort, and success, and always try to do everything possible for you to achieve your goals.
We’re a family-owned and operated business, and in the third generation, I proudly continue the man’s work of my great-grandfather – Pal Phil, the Snow Leopard and the climbing legend of the USSR. He was one of the very first mountain guides on Elbrus, bringing international guests to the summit since 1930. It is a great honor for me to continue what he has dedicated his life to. I always knew I was born for this. I knew this is my destiny and I always followed my heart and had a vision of the future of the Elbrus guiding industry.
Today, thanks to our family-style personal approach, deepest local knowledge and expertise, international western guiding standards, and decades of guiding experience on Elbrus, we proudly deliver the highest possible quality on our Mount Elbrus climbing tours in a small 8-guest group format. We pay attention to all the tiny details behind the scene because for us - they matter. I and every RMH guide grew up climbing Mount Elbrus and we know this mountain like no one else in the industry. We are true local Elbrus yetis. We are the Tribe. We are different. We appreciate that you trust your Mount Elbrus climb to RMH! Please, feel free to contact me personally, at any time, with any questions you may have.
Welcome to the Tribe!"
