Formerly known as Gornaya Karusel, this top-notch ski resort was constructed for the 2014 Winter Olympics ski-jumping events. Today it boasts 12 modern lifts, plus 30km of high-quality piste amid the rugged terrain of Mt Aibga. There are some memorable views of neighbouring mountains and countryside from three transfer levels at 960m, 1450m and 2200m above sea level.

The resort is a pretty great summertime playground as well, with 7km of mountain bike tracks and four hiking trails taking in forests, fields and waterfalls. The so-called Adventure Park is a ropes obstacle course, strung between the trees at 1460m. There's even an indoor water park (open year-round) with a glass-domed roof showing off mountain views.
