The Olympia ski lift is available all year round for guests with walking tickets (lifting without skiing), and in the winter season also with ski passes.

After climbing on the Dryad lift, you can already start riding, or, if desired, climb higher on the Tundra gondola cable car.

If you come by car, you can leave it at the lower station of the Rosa Khutor cable cars. There are also parking spaces throughout the Rosa Dolina and the Mountain Olympic Village (parking is paid).

In winter, there is a large outdoor parking lot at the Rosa Stadium mark of 940 meters. Parking on it is free.

The ticket offices are located at the lower station of the cable cars in the Rosa Valley, in the building "Shelter of the Winds" in the Mountain Olympic Village and at the Rosa Stadium mark.

The snowpark is located in the circus Ober Khutor sector, in the area of the red highway Ober Khutor. You can get to the stesh park on the Dryad and Daphne cable cars, there are several ski slopes around the lifts, so it will not be any problems to go to the lifts.
