You can try to make super extreme ski & snowboard descent from Ushba "Pillow" and even from some mountains around Ushba plateau - Schurovski peak, Chatyn..
This is still un-skied before eria - You could be the First.
It's a great ski adventures but rather hard,
as the altitude and conditions is not easy. It's the real EXTREME!!!
This is really the most magic mountain. Its singular and rather disturbing shape, the grandiosity of its faces, and its alpinist history have made a myth of the mountain that bears the name of Witches' Sabbath.
Ushba plateau - is a good place for extreme snow-board action. Jumps, free-ride from Ushba slopes - it's a magic of the great shape and scale of 1000 m "Mirror" rock on the back ground.
Climbing Ushba via normal route by the North crest to North summit from Plateau is not easy. It takes about 6 - 8 hours, depanding on the snow and ice conditions, to climb the summit.
