An exotic place off the beaten track, provides some rocky off-piste and two long, well-maintained runs for intermediate and advanced riders. However, relatively small riding area and remoteness make it not so attractive.

The best place to stay is the hotel on Gladenkaya mountain. They offer 6-bed houses for 1500 R ($55) on weekdays and 2700 ($85) on weekends (so, that's about $10 to $15 per person if you are 6 people). If you are not too many people, your best bet is Zharki hotel complex, which offers private singles or doubles for 600 R ($22) on weekdays and 900 R ($33) on weekends. The both hotels tend to get full on weekends and holidays, so it's better to come on Monday. It's also recommended to book and it can be done through a local travel agency or directly with the resort (but their English can be non-existent). If everything is booked, you might be able to find something in Sayanogorsk, but it's 40 km away.
