Get Piste

Test the snow before the pros at the Sochi Olympic resort


Your next stop: Sochi.

Your goal: Deflowering new ski pistes in Krasnaya Polyana.
Because once Olympians and fans rain on the Russian resort village hosting the 2014 Winter Olympics, it'll never be the same.
So make your way this fall to Rosa Khutor, an alpine ski resort in the Krasnaya Polyana district with 37 miles of slopes, 15 lifts, and 5,700 feet of vertical descent. All alpine Olympic events will be held here, so it’s prime for Super-G practice if you’re game.
There’ll be heli-skiing, heli-boarding, and awesome off-piste ops if you’re looking for more action. And don't worry, they've got bunny hills, too, so it's fit for any ski bunny. 
This is the ultimate opportunity to conquer new slopes before the world’s skiing elite. And look out for President Putin and his latest hot sidechick, they’ve been known to frequent the area.
When you’re done, head to Trikoni Tavern for a beer and a cuddle-bunny.
And if it gets too cold in the mountains, remember Sochi has palm trees and a beach, too.
