Environmental friendliness of the ski resort Gazprom Mountain Resort

The 2014 Sochi Olympic Games have been criticized due to the building of ski resorts in the previously undisturbed natural environment. The Psekhako Ridge, upon which the Gazprom Mountain Resort is located, was massively modified in order to build the access roads, which is very evident when there is not much snow. However, the encroachments made due to the construction of the ski resort are countered with many compensatory measures such as the project to reintroduce the snow leopard to the area. The exemplary connections of the ski resorts surrounding Krasnaya Polyana to the public transportation network are also very positive. In the course of the Olympic Games preparation, the region was also connected to the gas supply and must no longer heat with coal and wood, which also significantly improves the air quality.
