Sochi Travel Guide

Krasnaya Polyana

Krasnaya Polyana

Set 1,968 feet (600m) above sea level, Krasnaya Polyana, meaning 'red meadow' is fast becoming the most popular ski resort in Russia. Skiers and snowboarders here can enjoy the magnificent panoramic view of the West Caucasus.

Located just 25 miles (40km) from Sochi and the Black Sea coast, Krasnaya Polyana is sometimes called the 'Russian Courchevel" for its well-groomed pistes, good apr?Ęs-ski nightlife, and high prices. The resort owes much of its popularity to its excellent heliskiing opportunities, however there are good runs for beginners.

The resort is currently undergoing massive construction and renovations ahead of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, as it will host many events. Olympic facilities located in Krasnaya Polyana include the Russian National Sliding Centre (luge bobsleigh and skeleton), Psekhako Ridge (biathlon, cross-country skiing and Nordic combined), Roza Khutor Alpine Resort (Alpine skiing and snowboarding), Alpika Service Mountain Resort
