Ski slopes at Sochi resorts are open today depending on the weather

Tourists at the Sochi ski resorts today are not particularly lucky with their skiing. The tracks operate unpredictably – they are sometimes opened and sometimes closed due to weather conditions.

After heavy snowfalls, the thickness of the snow cover in the mountains reaches 2 m, and the risk of avalanches is high. Therefore, only some slopes were open in the morning, and even then at altitudes of less than 1500 m. Towards evening, under snowfall hit skiers at the Gazprom Polyana resort, fortunately no one was injured.

And from the very morning, tourists followed the reports about which routes would open. Since only part of the slopes were periodically accessible, it is not surprising that there were sometimes large queues at the lifts. At the same time, skiing turned out to be akin to a lottery: “We managed to go down highway F once, and everything was closed. Four minutes of skiing in 3 hours is a success!”, “Perhaps today those who decided to stay in hotels turned out to be right. At Rosa Khutor we stood in line for 40 minutes in order to spend only 10 minutes on the mountain,” tourists write in ski chats.

As for evening skiing, from 18:30 to 22:30 at the Krasnaya Polyana Resort the operation of the “First Step”, “Uchebnaya”, “Krasnaya Polyana” and “Zvezdnaya” tracks has been announced. According to the morning report, several descents to Gazprom Laura should also open, but no updated information was received in the afternoon. Tourists should take into account that due to unstable weather conditions, access to the ski lifts may be limited at any time.
