More than 765,000 guests visited "Rosa Khutor" during the 2023/2024 ski season

It is a 10% increase from the previous year's 680,000 visitors.

The season ended on April 14, with skiing available from December 8. Guests had access to 105 kilometers of trails serviced by 32 modern lifts, 52 ski runs of various difficulties, and two snowparks. A gondola lift, "Tyrol," was reopened, connecting the resort with the "Alpika-Service" GK. The ski resort's school provided nearly 60,000 hours of instruction, and a new children's training program, "Reactive Snowflakes," was introduced. From December to April, 1,500 children participated in weekly children's races, and the "Hutoronok Cup" was held 11 times.

Based on school statistics, 80% of visitors preferred skiing, while 20% preferred snowboarding, a trend supported by an overall survey showing 64% of visitors were skiers and 36% were snowboarders. The "Dawn on the Run" program was the most popular service, with a two-fold increase in usage compared to the previous season. For the 2023/2024 season, the resort implemented an AI-based predictive model for lift lines, allowing guests to avoid major queues.

The park welcomed 29,000 visitors and now houses the largest alpaca farm in Russia, with four alpacas having personal caretakers. The on-site Peruvian cuisine café attracted 11,000 customers. The season also showcased several sporting and musical events, including a youth festival, a winter sports competition, and a snowboarding event. The Alley of Fame, honoring Olympic and Paralympic champions, was expanded with two new medals. In March, the first Eurasian Ski Resort Festival took place, uniting resorts from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, and Russia. The summer season at "Rosa Khutor" begins on April 28 and will last until November 2024...
