Ski resorts near Moscow

Ski resorts near Moscow and Moscow region

The territory of the Moscow region is predominantly flat, and therefore finding a suitable natural relief for organizing a ski resort is not an easy task. Therefore, many ski resorts in the Moscow region were created as a result of creating an artificial relief. The climatic conditions of the Moscow Region and the Moscow Region for the organization of ski resorts are favorable: the region is in a zone of temperate climate with an average winter temperature of about -9.

Today, many resorts in the Moscow Region and the Moscow Region are an unusual combination of complexes of various levels of service and comfort, from traditional small cottages to modern sports and entertainment centers with European-level service.

The main concentration of ski resorts in the Moscow region is observed where there is a small area with mountainous terrain. Such territories are located near Dmitrovsky highway, in Sergiev Posad, Zvenigorod and Istra.

The most popular centers located in Dmitrovsky district are Volen park, Yakhroma and Sorochany parks.

If in Yakhroma the maximum length of the route is 450 m, and the height difference is 70 m, then in Stepanovo, respectively, 960 m and 90 m.

All tracks are equipped with lighting and snowmaking systems. The first are important for skiing in the evening, at night and in cloudy weather. And the second – for good quality snow on the tracks, and sometimes (in snowless weather) and just for the presence of this snow.

In addition, all routes are provided with lifts. There are 11 such lifts in Yakhroma (7 tow ropes, 3 baby lifts and 1 conveyor lift).
