Rosa Khutor is the largest of the four Krasnaya Polyana ski resorts. With the allocation of the XXII Winter Olympics to the Black Sea metropolis of Sochi, many new ski resorts were developed within just a few years in and around the previously sparsely populated (300 people) town of Krasnaya Polyana. read more Nowadays, multi-storey buildings belonging to American and Western European hotel chains, which line both sides of expansive promenades on either side of the mountain river, feature a mix of neo-classical spa city architecture with hints of the Stalinist period. The Olympic gondola leads up to a 1100 m high plateau upon which the Olympic Village is located. The ski resort begins here. Two additional gondolas lead up to the 2320 m high Rosa Peak with its high alpine terrain. The ski resort will be further developed and will be completely open to the public after the Olympic Games.
