Advanced skiing/powder snow skiing Rosa Khutor

Krasnaya Polyana already had a reputation as a freeriding Mecca before topics such as the Olympic Games were considered in Sochi. The heli-skiing service offered by a French company in the last millennium also had an influence on this. A part of the previous heli-skiing area is now located within the borders of Rosa Khutor. The Rosa Peak offers excellent off-piste terrain and even some of the prepared slopes are pretty challenging.

Information for advanced skiers, freeriders
