The Elbrus territorial search and rescue service, search and rescue units from the Krasnodar and Stavropol areas, the Southern regional search unit from Sochi and search and rescue services from North Ossetia and Karachai-Circassia are concentrated in the settlement of Terskol.
On Wednesday, the head of the Russian Emergency Ministry's Southern regional center, Ivan Teterin, participated in the inspection of the suspected location of the snowboarders. He flew over the area with rescuer workers.
Seven young people from Moscow are believed to have taken a walk in the mountains and never returned.
