Winter recreation in Dombay


RTG TV host Denis Golovko visited one of the most breathtaking places in Karachaeva-Cherkessia, tried his hand at snowboarding and downhill skiing and reached the very top of a frozen waterfall.

In the very heart of the Caucuses, surrounded by mountains, is the village of Dombay – a favourite destination for Russian climbers, snowboarders and skiers. Everyone who comes here is looking for a hearty dose of adrenaline. Dombay, which is located in the Karachaeva-Cherkessia Republic, was developed from the beginning as a mountain resort. In the 1920s a number of hotels and ski areas popped up almost overnight on land that was before wild fields. The modern resort is still today geared toward those looking to relax and enjoy themselves by partaking in snow sports.
