Good morning! Did you sleep well? Yes, we know - your body hurts, you've gone to a lot of skiing. We feel the same. Every time we say to ourselves: "Do not get tired of it on the first day" - but no! What does a man who does months after months of nothing but sitting at his computer staring at the screen, really? No, not beer! (Beer comes later). He needs snow tracks, only traces of snow, nothing but snow tracks, the longer the better. That's why today, to treat your muscle pain, take your skis and snowboards and up the slope we go (there are many of them here). You better be a good breakfast - do not leave anything on your plate! How is the weather today? Perfect as always! The famous line from Alexander Pushkin's verses come to mind: "Frost and sun, what a wonderful day." So, go ahead!
Day 04 Go to Pesochniy Pass (1832m), climb to the top of the small Chimgan (2097m).
Did not you forget to take ski poles? The boots are OK? Then everything is fine. Today we are going to somersault in the snow! Sun overalls, gloves, boots and goggles will come in handy. By the way, do not forget about your camera, but be sure that it is right to packaged to protect them from moisture. Well, everyone is ready? Then let's go! At the beginning, while we are Kozlinoye gorge on foot, it's pretty easy. But once we escape from the street a real fun begins: You must lift your upper legs and sometimes they get out of snowdrifts. Actually it is a very funny pic: falling in the snow, puffing, weird trembling legs, are adult men and women continued to climb (normal people, she observed, diagnosis: "You are just crazy!"). But we know that. Madmen those who sit at home in front of their televisions and fat are We, on the contrary, are to lose weight in a very healthy and enjoyable way. Now sweat, we do, but it's not bad, it simply means we are warm. And then when we finally got the Pesochniy pass, we will be able to watch a truly enchanting beauty of the snow-covered ravine Gulkam. (By the way, you can enjoy the famous Gulkam canyon in winter and the snow should be deep enough, we can try to increase it). You have recovered your breath? Ready for Small Chimgan go? It's a pretty steep climb at the beginning, which is then at the top, almost horizontal.
We do not insist, of course, but do not you want to be awesome, just take surrealistic view of winter Charvak? That's where mystical begins ... Have as a snack, drink something hot (here we mean tea or coffee!) - And we make it!

Day 05 Paragliding (can you believe that?).
We bet you'll be really surprised today! Watch your leader guy at this shy and cute. What do you think he is? You'll never guess! Their leader is not only a cool climber and skier, his greatest hobby Paragliding! He is a very experienced pilot, who can not imagine his life without the possibility of at least once per week paragliding. In addition, he is a perfect teacher in this kind of extreme that can teach either (your choice) you. This fascinating sport or fly on a tandem paraglider This is a very nice red and white wings, which is meant for two people - a pilot and a greenhorn. Moreover, as a greenhorn you not to do anything but move the legs to gain speed to pilots to hear instructions, and then with ecstatic joy (or fear, or both) yell, hang happily on the belly of your guardian angels. A greenhorn could not even imagine to this day, that it is possible, as is flying in the sky (like Santa Claus's sleigh riding with deer team on Christmas Eve) and the endless white, snow-covered area under observation (Or are you a Santa Claus!). Fascination, happiness, adrenaline, eyes like saucers - these are all about you!
If you are not a greenhorn, but a really experienced pilot, and also brought his own glider (why not), then it's completely different! Their leader is not to keep secret the best places for paragliding, but instead is willing to share the information. You have to do is just try it for yourself immediately. Real pilots are as follows: they can not help trying the new environment - it is like a chronic disease, you can not get away from him ... And why would you anyway?
