Welcome to Sheregesh
Isolated and tiny Sheregesh is a mining village that has become the focus of a booming snowboarding and skiing scene in recent years. Those who make it here are rewarded with some of the most prolific snowfall in Russia, fairly uncrowded slopes and a raucous après-ski scene that would put many European resorts to shame. Out of season, Sheregesh has a lot less to offer, although you could use it as a base for day walks around the mountain ridges and through the forests. The journey here is an added bonus, winding through tiny villages and deserted country roads in view of the Gorniya Shoriya mountains.
