Measure your skiing speed using the SPEED TEST at the Krasnaya Polyana Resort Race Zone. Suitable for intermediate ‘skiing on parallel skis’ and for practicing downhill skiing in the giant slalom.

The race zone is a 150-meter-long sports piste equipped with a professional time tracking system. Here, riders and athletes can test their skiing skills and compete with each other by measuring the time of each descent..

From December to March, the race zone operates between 1,460 m and Polyana 960, on the ‘blue’ Transit piste. You can descend to the race zone on the ‘blue’ Krasnaya Polyana piste or the ‘red’ Ozernaya piste.

From March to May, the race zone will operate at an altitude of 2,050 m in the Circus-2 mountain valley.

To use the sports piste, you must familiarize yourself with the rules of conduct in the race zone and purchase special tokens. To measure your speed, drop a token into the special token holder at the start of the piste to activate the time meter. You can start descending after the time meter becomes active. The result of the run will be displayed as soon as you have finished descending the piste. If your result is not displayed on the electronic scoreboard, please report it by telephone: +7 (988) 400-46-06.

You can learn how to ski downhill in the resort's race zone by taking lessons with instructors of the Krasnaya Polyana Resort.
