One of the most snowboard-friendly resorts around St. Petersburg, Snezhny is one of the three major St. Petersburg resorts, located about 1.5 hours from the city near Korobitsyno village. It claims to be the only resort in Russia that has FIS (International Ski Federation) certificate. Even though there are only 4 runs, they are quite wide (85m), flat and are well looked after. There's also a snowboard terrain park and a board-cross run. Not too far there are two other resorts: Zolotaya Dolina and Krasnoe Ozero, so if you're bored with Snezhny, you can always move on.
