23-Июня-2007 – Посетить эту точку нам помог случай. Мы узнали, что на территории республики Хакассия есть чудесное место, где можно кататься на горных лыжах до июля. Это место называется поселок Приисковое, а находится он в отрогах Салаирского кряжа. Высота местных гор едва достигает двух тысяч метров, но снега здесь выпадает более трёх метров, поэтому на северных склонах он лежит до середины лета. Отсутствие подъемников и всякого сервиса не пугает настоящих любителей экстрима. Девятьсот километров от Новосибирска для нас не расстояние, поэтому собираем лыжи и вперёд.

Изучая маршрут движения, обнаружили CP в тридцати километрах от места катания на лыжах. Добавляем один день в свой график и посвящаем его посещению заветной CP.

23-Jun-2007 – We had a propitious occasion to visit this confluence. We have learned, that there is a wonderful place in the territory of Khakass republic where Alpine skiing is available till July. This place is called Priiskovoye settlement, and it's located on spurs of Salair ridge, in the republic of Khakassiya. The height of local mountains hardly reaches two thousand meters, but snow usually falls here more than three meters depth, therefore it's still preserved on northern slopes up to the middle of summer. The absence of ski lifts and any service does not frighten the real fans of extreme sports. Nine hundred kilometers from Novosibirsk city is not important distance for us, therefore we pack our skis and go ahead.

Having investigated a route of our journey, we have found out a CP in thirty kilometers from the place of skiing. We added one day to our schedule and devoted this day to visiting the cherished confluence.

The hunt goes on.
