Krasnodar, 28 December. The new alpine skiing season has reportedly begun in Rosa Khutor, Sochi. Because of the weather, only some of the ski trails stretched along the Northern slope starting from 1,600 m above sea level opened on the first day of the season. The list of the working trails includes B-52, Plateau, Chalet, Rosa Star, Rosa Blade, and Triton. The cableways Olympia, Reserve Forest, Caucasian Express (up to 1,600 m above sea level), Quarter, and Chalet also began to work for skiers with accessories.
Various infrastructure improvement works had reportedly been completed at the preparation stage: new ski trails Calendula and Blackberry were laid along the Southern slope (thereby the total length of the pistes reached 105 km, making it the longest alpine ski zone in Russia); with the two new belt travolators, Veles and Pegasus, the total number of lifting facilities reached 32. A spacious open platform was built at the transfer point joining Wolf’s Rock, Reserve Forest and Caucasian Express cableways due to the dismounting of the tunnel. Thereby, the transport connection between the three cableways has become more convenient.
