Sochi - perfect weekend ski

Updated: Jan 17

If you like skiing or snowboarding, go check out the beautiful slopes, perfect dry powder snow and modern facilities in Sochi! The town of Roza Khutor looks like a Hollywood film setting aiming to copy the atmosphere of the Alps. But although it lacks authenticity it is very nicely done, with high quality lifts, stylish restaurant and even great slopeside restaurants for a tasty lunch and entertaining apres-ski! You can also stay in Krasnaya Polyana (Dolina 960), but this is a smaller area and further away from the main hub in Roza Khutor.


Flights are only 1,5 hours from Moscow, multiple times a day. Arriving there just order a GetTaxi / Yandex van which takes you to Roza Chutor in 40-60 minutes. We stayed in Azimut, which is quite simple, but cheap and of good value for money. Hotel choice is wide here, so check out booking.com for your preferred hotel.


Ski conditions are almost perfect: subtropical climate and proximity to the sea provide powder snow. The snow quality was better than in Europe! Beautiful forest slopes, although they are often a bit narrow when it's crowded. The only downside is lift logistics. It is not very well thought through and there can be long lines. And watch out in the afternoon for skiers who enjoyed a bit too many alcoholic beverages at lunch ;)


Even if you have only 2 days of skiing it is worth it!
