Alpine skiing can hardly be classified as public. There is no shortage of those who want to get a dose of adrenaline. But suitable mountain slopes are quite far away.
To practice this sport, one should have both a certain level of well-being and character traits corresponding to steep slopes. Alpine skiing is a sport for the elite. For successful and independent people, for those who know their worth. It is this audience that usually gathers at fashionable ski resorts located on the alpine slopes of Switzerland, France, Italy and Austria. In all these countries, the highest level of infrastructure for skiing has been created - sports facilities, prepared tracks, modern ski lifts and hotel services. The only problem is that all this is located very far away, a trip there is associated with significant costs and with obtaining a Schengen visa. And what about those skiers who have neither the desire nor the opportunity to spend their holidays in the Alps?
In the Ural region
Unconditional traditional respect for Switzerland as the world capital of skiing does not mean that it has no alternatives. Have you heard about the sports complex"Gora Teplaya" and other Ural ski slopes? Unfortunately, they are less known than French Courchevel. The recreational potential of the Ural region has not yet been fully exploited. But the prospects for the development of tourism in all the Ural regions, from the north to the south of this mountain range, make it attractive in the future not only for Russian skiers. The Urals can become a place of attraction for fans of this sport on a global scale. The mountain-skiing complex "Gora Teplia" is only one of the successful investment projects. Currently, the sports complex is not yet fully equipped. It is located near the capital of the Ural region and is an example of how to properly invest in the development of the tourism sector in order to get the desired return on investment.
"Mountain Warm", Pervouralsk
One of the main advantages of this ski resort is its reach. Getting here is pretty easy. "Teplaya Mountain" is located less than fifty kilometers from the capital of the Urals, Yekaterinburg, near the small town of Pervouralsk. You should drive in a northerly direction along the Bilimbaevsky highway. The ski complex is very well located on the ground. This is reflected in the fact that all three of its permanent routes are oriented to the south and south-west. And this circumstance is an excellent natural protection from the northern winds, which could create some discomfort forskiers. Fans of downhill skiing are provided with three tracks with a total length of about two kilometers with a height difference of 135 meters. They differ in the degree of difficulty: the side ones are more suitable for beginners, and the central one contains rather difficult sections.
Service and mode of operation
Downhill tracks are periodically processed by special equipment and maintained in accordance with the accepted andinternational standards for this sport. Visitors to the mountain-skiing complex "Mount Teplia" can count on the use of lifts and training in the primary skills of downhill skiing with a qualified instructor. There is a sports equipment rental. Those who don't have enough thrills can even rent a quad bike. The sports complex is designed for a one-day stay. There are catering establishments and a guarded parking lot. Accommodation in hotels of the city of Pervouralsk is possible. The ski complex accepts visitors from mid-November to mid-April.
Prospects for development
Alpine skiing is actively developing throughout the Ural region. Its prospects are due to both the growing popularity of this sport and the general tourist attractiveness of the Ural region. Many of those who happen to be in the Urals for the first time in their lives note with surprise that in its natural expressiveness it is not inferior to Switzerland. And by the number of mountainslopes suitable for downhill and slalom, far exceeds it. In addition, a trip to the Urals does not require a Schengen visa, and staying here is much cheaper. The development of tourism in the region can bring significant profits to those who decide to invest in the development of the region's ski infrastructure. A positive aspect is the administrative measures taken in most of the Ural regions aimed at supporting and developing the tourism business.
Teplyaya Gora, Perm Region
This, founded in the nineteenth century, a historic village in the northern Urals due to the similarity in the name is sometimes confused with a popular ski base in the vicinity of Yekaterinburg. It does not yet have a direct relationship to skiing. Nevertheless, the village is very promising in many tourist destinations. Among other things, in this area there is no shortage of mountain slopes suitable for downhill skiing. The shortage here is still felt only in the sports and service infrastructure. On tourist maps, this area appears mainly as a starting point for hiking in the northern Urals and rafting along the rivers Koiva, Vilva and Usva. Even despite the fact that the weather in Teploya Gora is not always comfortable, these places have their own stable circle of fans who will not exchange these harsh lands for anything else. It is difficult to single out the season in which the northern Ural foothills would lose their beauty. These places are attractive primarily for those whodreams for some time to break away from the usual benefits of civilization. You can go here throughout the year. You can get there by train by train "Perm-Teplyaya Gora" or by bus along the same route. Travel time is approximately five hours.
