Krasnaya Polyana is the most sophisticated ski and snowboard resort in Russia and will be the host of the 2014 Winter Olympics. The lifts are fast and convenient, the runs are in a very good condition, the local rescue team is considered to be the best in Russia, plus lots of comfortable mini hotels at the village and cozy apres-ski bars.
