Krasnaya Polyana Ski Resorts
Whatever the season, the ski resorts of the Krasnaya Polyana Mountains near Sochi have something to offer. From Gornaya Karusel and Gazprom to the highly popular Rosa Khutor, each ski resort boasts unique ski slopes designed for both champions and beginners. If you visit during the warmer months, the mountains still offer plenty of fun, from the rope adventure park to a family cycle ride.
Olympic ski slopesThe slopes in the Krasnaya Polyana Mountain cluster were chosen to host the 2014 Winter Olympics due to their beauty and quality. Long slopes for beginners and great off-piste opportunities make this place perfect for skiers of all levels. Before heading to the slopes, be sure to check the snowfall as the resort's ocean facing location can sometimes mean less snow.
One of the most popular locations on the mountain is the Rosa Khutor ski resort. Equipped with the latest advances in ski technology, the resort adheres to the highest safety standards. The modern slopes can easily accommodate 10,500 visitors per day, providing each and every one of them with high-quality service. The resort is equipped with modern ski facilities, including high-speed lifts that cover the 1,745-meter ride to the peak in just 25 minutes. A cutting-edge artificial snow system guarantees a winter season of up to 140 days a year, depending on the altitude of the trail, while the combination of subtropical coastal air and mountain air makes the resort’s snow particularly soft.
Family fun at Panda ParkThe mountains also offer plenty of experiences during the summer months. Connect with nature during a mountaintop yoga session, or fly high with your family at the Panda Park, a rope adventure park home to 450 meters of aerial adventures from climbing walls and rope ladders to a thrilling zip line across the Mzymta River. Alternatively, stroll or bike through the picturesque slopes of the Caucasus Mountains. Bicycles are available for rent, or you could try your hand at horseback riding.
