"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 single member of the crew is passionate about guiding on Mount Elbrus. All we do 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 for it and always try to do everything possible for you to accomplish your goals. This is why we here. This is our job.
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 100% personal approach, deepest local knowledge and expertise, international western guiding standards, and decades of guiding experience on Elbrus, we proudly offer the most unique Mount Elbrus climbing experience in a small family-style group format. We pay attention to all the tiny details because they matter. I and every single RMH guide grew up climbing Elbrus and we know this mountain like no one else in the industry. We are local Elbrus yetis. We are the Tribe. And 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!"
