  • Was in distant 90s and it so happened that hit recently. Impressions the most positive. Long was not skiing, but there is space for maneuver for people of all skill levels. Tickets sell at the bottom, it is worth 300 p to the top, where you can take the equipment rental or purchase-whatever you like. There is a hotel. Parking lock Park, stoned to problematic. Along the road you cannot Park-hanging sign, seen of Inspector on a poor Protocol. Very comfortable lifts-is in the form of chairs and booths. Saw not dismantled ski lift, probably for some days works for those who are nostalgic about. Raises until the middle of the mountains and up to the top as you like. From the very top, of course, fun. Several tracks, all the cool. Ibid. lessons from kids, so cute kids ride. Many companies intact families with children. There are just walking, nobody interferes. Each lift there is hack to help on any issue. At the top and in the middle there is a cafe where you can grab a snack. In General, "mountain air" has changed drastically for the better, not worse now than Japanese neighbors.

  • It was great! Go to fonikulere and breathtaking! Height! View! From the top is a unique and unforgettable views! There are restaurants, where to eat and drink! Indescribable delight! Nature, the sky, the air-it's all just wonderfully! Perfectly to visit this place at sunset!

  • Vacationing at many ski resorts in the Alps. STK "mountain air"-is no different. The same lifting equipment, the same ski infrastructure (including equipment hire, cafes on the slopes, etc.), the same superb views of the neighbouring mountains and nature. Skated here 14.03-16.03.2017-a bit unlucky with snow, snow is not enough and already heavy, melted. But it is the same in the Alps-the abundant snow, something missing ... In any case, were pleasantly surprised and very happy!

  • Great ski resort very close to the center of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk town. However, English speaking services, just like in the rest of Russia, are lacking. There is a Russian cafe on the top station selling typical Russian snacks and drinks (no English menu or English-speaking staff).
  • Got a chance to overlook a stunning view from the cable car window. Definitely worth of riding.
  • Billions on weather. No snow. One track is working and that all the hillocks. Lifting cost 300 ₽. Service no. Horseradish I drove here from Moscow.

  • The best place to ski in the far East. Trails for every level of riding. Good service, comfortable lifts. Tasty food on the mountain.

  • Everything is fine when there is snow. On weekends, the small queue on a lift. Would like to see more tracks with lighting
