Ski Season In Sochi Is Breaking Records
(Source: http://octour.ru)

This ski season in Sochi has become the most snowy in the past 10 years, the press service of the administration of the resort city said. The interlocutor of the agency noted that due to favorable weather conditions, the current ski season was breaking records.

      "The ski season at the resort "Gorki Gorod" in Sochi will last until May 20," the spokesman said.  According to him, at the moment in the mountains of Sochi, snow cover on the tracks is  1.5 - 4 meters, which makes it comfortable to ski up to a mark of 960 meters above the sea level. "In spring months, except for the opportunity to ski in the mountains, another attractive bonus will be the prices for ski passes, which are reduced by 50%," the agency interlocutor assured. He also said that the season at the resort "Rosa Khutor" ends on April 23.

      If you bother to take the plane from any Moscow airport to the city of Sochi, you will definitely never regret about it. This town is rather small, though one of the longest settlements in the world – it is stretched along the Black sea coast for about 150 km. Sochi is unique for its astonishing nature and spa facilities – few places on our planet can boast to have both the seaside and the mountains (the Caucasus – famous mountain system – is as little as sixty km away from the sea). Sochi is Russian New Zealand, except that it is not an island and not thousands km away from the Old World and there are no dangerous man-eating sharks in the sea and poisonous shakes and… ok, Sochi is much better than New Zealand. 

      Humid subtropical zone forms perfect climate – hot and sunny summers for suntan lovers and mild winters for mad-for-mountain-skiing ones. Water in the Black sea is known to have chemical composition almost similar to human blood – you can even drink it if you want to know how blood tastes (just kidding). However, you won’t have to close your eyes while swimming and diving, the water won’t make them sore as Mediterranean seawater surely would. The famous Russian ski resort Krasnaya Polyana is situated near Sochi – come there for downhill and snowboarding, heli-ski and freeride – this place is paradise for winter vacations. The town of Sochi is located near one of the largest Russia’s reserve parks. Its suburbs are a treasury of rare plant and animal species. You can find ancient gnarled yews and boxtrees, which are as old as eight hundred years or even more. Of course they are not sequoias, but their long mossy branches look fascinating – it’s like traveling in time to the age of dinosaurs and other strange creatures.
