It will become sharply warmer in Krasnaya Polyana: should ski lovers worry?

Sharp warming is expected in southern Russia. According to the Gismeteo service, today the thermometer in Sochi will rise to +14, and next week it will be even hotter: from Tuesday to Thursday it will remain +17 degrees.

For lovers of winter Sochi beaches and generally relaxing by the sea, the news is positive, but for fans of alpine skiing, the forecast makes them nervous – in the Sochi mountain cluster the air will warm up, although not as much as on the coast, but it will also warm up significantly – up to +15…+16.

In the chats of the resorts Krasnaya Polyana and Rosa Khutor, questions periodically arise from those who are planning to go south in the near future to go skiing. Here is one of the requests: “If in a week there will be a plus temperature of +10 on the tops of the heads, will it be possible to ride or is it unlikely?” However, experienced skiers reassure: they say that at the tops, that is, at the upper levels, there will be no such temperature, a maximum of +3, and the only thing that can interfere with an active ski holiday is heavy rainfall and avalanche danger. This is confirmed by the resorts themselves. “Warming will not affect our work in any way, because while there were snowfalls, we compacted the trails well, plus the artificial snowmaking produced plenty of snow,” head of the press service Kristina Khishchenko told TourDom.ru.

Those who definitely won’t have to be nervous about the weather are those skiers who have chosen other slopes for their holidays – the weather is fine there. Although in the Caucasus – at the Elbrus, Arkhyz, Dombay resorts – it will also become warmer, but not as radically as in Sochi. But in other popular winter holiday destinations it will be, as expected, frosty. In the Murmansk region, where the Bolshoy Vudyavr resort is located, temperatures from –8 to –16 are expected in the coming days. On Sheregesh in the Kemerovo region from –2 to –16. At the Manzherok resort in the Altai Territory, everything is less stable: from +8 to –10 on the Celsius scale.

Meanwhile Moscow fails snow – the height of the snowdrifts the day before reached 60 cm. It was just a little short of the record. According to the head of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia, Roman Vilfand, the highest snow depth for the capital was recorded on February 18, 1966, when the snowdrifts grew to 65 cm.
