There aren’t many places in Europe to ski comfortably in the middle of April. But Khanty-Mansiysk (Russia) offers a great opportunity to prolong winter! The final stage of the FIS Marathon Cup, “Ugra Ski Marathon” will take place in the oil capital of Russia on 11th of April 2015.
We guarantee perfectly prepared track that will be laid on the ice of the great Russian river Irtysh. Minimized vertical drop will allow not only professionals but non-professional skiers as well to cover 50 km distance. Your competitors will be the members of the Russian national skiing team.
At Khanty-Mansiysk, you also have a chance to get acquainted with the unique history of the indigenous Khanty and Mansi peoples of the North, to try their national dishes, and to learn about their ancient customs. Moreover, all skiing enthusiasts will have an opportunity to train on the tracks of the Aleksandr Filipenko Winter Sports Centre, where biathlon World Cup stages and biathlon World Championships (2003 and 2011) take place; and on the oldest ski track in town at the Dolina Ruch'ev stadium.
