Sverdlovsk Region ski resorts get fewer visitors due to cold weather

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, January 19, 2016. The number of visitors at Sverdlovsk Region’s ski resorts was considerably less impressive during the New Year break this year than a year earlier because of cold weather, Gora Listvennaya Ski Resort informs UrBC.

‘We grew more popular after Turkey and Egypt became unavailable, but the outside temperature was too low for skiing between January 2 and January 7, so we only had 350 to 500 coming in every day instead of the usual 1,200 to 1,300. It was only on January 9-10 that the good weather set in and the number of customers rose back to normal,’ the resort representative said.

The ski resorts’ growing popularity is expected to help make up for the lower customer traffic during the winter break, weather permitting.
