World-class freeriding in Russia’s remote Caucasus region. As wild and adventurous as skiing and snowboarding gets.

Krasnaya Poliana is an unlikely looking boomtown, but that's exactly what it is. It's at the frontline of the transition from communism to capitalism that is taking place right across this huge continent and, with nearby Sochi hosting the 2014 Winter Olympics, is set to explode in the next few years. At the moment, it combines an edgy, frontier feel with an antiquated lift system that accesses some incredible terrain.

Opening times


  • Early Jan to early Apr: 0830-1545/1600

Pros

Cons

 

One of the best freeriding resorts in the world.

Not a resort for beginners or intermediates.

 

Plenty of trees for flat light riding.

Antiquated lift system means big queues.

 

Great heliskiing facilities.
