Servicemen of the mountain company of the reconnaissance battalion of the Northern Fleet marines have begun preparations for a ski mountaineering competition. A training camp for a team of naval climbers, consisting of 10 marines, is being held at a training base in Apatity, Murmansk region. Some elements of mountain training “black berets” have worked at their own training base in the village of Sputnik. The mountain range was established there at the end of 2017.

The training camp will last until December 18. Its main goal is to prepare the team for the upcoming competitions, which will be held next year.

In the outgoing year, the Severomors took part in mountain triathlon for the first time. The Marines performed well at the Championship of the Russian Armed Forces in Terskol (Kabardino-Balkarian Republic), where they took fifth place, ahead of two opposing teams. Also, climbers of the Northern Fleet participated in the Sayan March competition of the 2021 International Army Games, which was held at the Ergaki Mountain Training Center in the Krasnoyarsk Territory. They finished seventh out of twelve national teams.
