Evening skiing in Krasnaya Polyana: Rosa Khutor, Gazprom, Krasnaya Polyana

Evening skiing is one of the most pleasant and romantic winter pastimes in the ski resorts.

During the evening skating, a special atmosphere and an inner mood that is different from the daytime skating is created. When you glide through the white snow on the illuminated tracks, and the stars "burn" above your head - this impression is bright, and the atmosphere is peaceful.

Evening skiing is also called "skating under the stars".

In Krasnaya Polyana (more precisely, in Esto-Sadka, there are no ski resorts in Krasnaya Polyana itself), all ski resorts offer evening skiing, of which there are three:

- Rosa Khutor

- Krasnaya Polyana (formerly Gorki Gorod)

- Gazprom, consisting of two slopes - "Laura" and "Alpika".

Each of the resorts is self-sufficient, is a full-fledged ski complex and has its own lifts, ski slopes and all related infrastructure: accommodation facilities (hotels, apartments, chalets), shops, cafes and restaurants, entertainment, activities and services.

All conditions are provided for skiers and snowboarders at the resorts. There are ski slopes at various heights, some of which offer evening skiing, ticket offices, luggage storage, medical posts, instructor services and ski equipment rental.

The trails, suitable for evening skiing, have artificial snow and lighting. There are lifts along and near the trails.

Before the evening skating, the tracks are re-prepared with a ratrak. There is a break between the day and evening skiing at the resorts (as a rule, it is 2 hours when the skiing is interrupted), during which the tracks are re-prepared for skating, which means that there will be fresh corduroy during the evening skating.

Another advantage may be that an evening ski pass is cheaper than a midday, morning or afternoon one.

In the evening, guests canrent ski equipment and equipment, classes with instructors, luggage storage, toilets, as well as a variety of food and recreation points at the resorts.
