One of the more popular ski resorts in the Caucasus region,
Dombai is a scenic mountain valley located at the confluence of
three rivers 37 miles (60km) from the Black Sea coast. Famous for
its pure air, Dombai is frequented mostly by Russian holidaymakers,
lending it a unique and lively atmosphere.
The facilities at Dombai are old and fairly worn, but there is a
tourist complex comprising 12 hotels and a recreation and sports
centre. Five lifts and three ski trackers operate on a
pay-as-you-go riding system serving varied pistes that cater for
all levels of skiers. The gentle slopes near the top of the
mountain are better suited to beginners, as the incline becomes
very steep toward the bottom.
