How Sheregesh surprised tourists this season KXan 36 Daily News

The main sports and tourist complex of Kuzbass during these New Year holidays pleased fans of mountain skiing and snowboarding, first of all, with the presence of snow. It’s not too much this season, but everything is known by comparison. For example, in the resorts of the Krasnodar Territory at the beginning of January there was no snowfall at all. They were expected as manna from heaven, since they could not open all the slopes for skiing. So, in addition to Sochi residents, tourists from Moscow, Vladivostok, St. Petersburg, Simferopol, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Krasnoyarsk, Abakan and other cities, as well as from Belarus and Kazakhstan, rested in Sheregesh.

They began to arrive at the foot of Mount Zelenaya in November – Sheregesh differs from the vast majority of resorts in the early onset of the winter season, which does not end until mid-May. But the most farsighted people booked hotels and guest houses for the holidays in advance. Even so, the number of placements, which grows year after year, is still below demand. According to official figures, there are already about a hundred hotels here. Meanwhile, according to analysts of the online booking service Sutochno.ru, the price of rental housing in Sheregesh increased by 24 percent this winter (the average bill is 6.9 thousand rubles per day), which which corresponds to the average level of Russia.

How has the Kuzbass resort surprised you this high season? Regulars point out that they have finally begun to solve the problem of transport accessibility. First of all, we built a ring road from the village to the mountain, which eliminates long-term traffic jams. In addition, the snow on the roads is cleaned regularly and efficiently. It remains to make walking paths and sidewalks.

Secondly, we open a free transfer from the village to the mountain (sector E) and back, and we also organize additional parking lots near the ski lifts. And a single ski pass, valid in Sheregesh since December, helps reduce queues at the cable cars. Many people prefer to replenish the balance of an electronic mountain pass (2645 rubles per day) through a special mobile application.

Ski slopes have also been more carefully prepared for operation. And now you can ski on the slopes of Sheregesh even late at night: the first illuminated slope is equipped in sector B. In total, there are 26 trails at the service of tourists (including options with indoor sliders for beginners) with a total length of more than 56 kilometers and almost two dozen ski lifts. Kuzbass residents who have joined the loyalty program receive a cashback (ten percent) on the MIR card after paying for accommodation, meals, wellness treatments, excursions, etc. There are already thirty associated companies in the program.

Getting to the popular resort from other regions is now easier too. In December, a schedule of weekly charter flights from Moscow, St. Petersburg and other cities to Novokuznetsk began. Direct transfer to the resting place is included in the price of a single ticket. And luggage, including skis and boards in cases, is received by holders of such a ticket at the remote terminal of the Novokuznetsk airport, which opened in the fall in a service center right on the mountain.
