Bang for Your Buck & Amazing Views

Bang for your buck

Day pass cost 30 euro (Jan 2017). Ski rental was 5 euro for the day. Limited ski range and pretty old school (1995-2005 carving models).

Awesome views on clear day, like when I was there. Some steep long runs. Vertical is nearly 1500 meters.

Hitched there in the dark and didn't need the permit that I'd read about. Were armed soldiers at checkpoints before Chechnya area.

Was sunny when I went and was little snow, though I was only there a day. Could have been more snow if I stayed longer. Off-piste would have been better if more snow, watch out for crevasses though!!!

Cheap as chips accommodation about 10-15km down the road...stayed in a nice little lodge with free local food and chai tea. Also had sauna and double bed, that I thoroughly enjoyed. All for 10 euros!!! Found on web search.

Didn't hang around town at night so can't comment on nightlife.
