Ski Slopes On The Vorobyovy Hills

Three ski slopes will appear on the Vorobyovy Hills in Moscow.

      Moscow authorities submitted their plans for the development of the Vorobyovy Hills territory and the creation of new public parks in the city. So, the Vorobyovy Hills will become an all-season sports center. The guests of the park in winter will see three ski slopes, two cross-country skis runs, a run for ice cross downhill, a tubing run. The cableway will also be renovated.

      The sporting events of the global level will be held on the Vorobyovy Hills this winter: the first Russian Open Championship in Downhill Skating in January, and one of the stages of the World Cup in this kind of sport in March. Two new berths will have been launched on the Moscow River embankment by the summer. The program for creation of the public parks will be implemented in the city. Next year it is planned to create about 50 such parks in different districts of Moscow.

      Vorobyovy Hills, known as Lenin Hills between 1935 and 1991, is a hill on the right bank of the Moskva River and one of highest points in Moscow, reaching a height of 220 m, or 60–70 m above the river level. The observation platform, which gives a good panoramic view of the city, is on a steep bank 85 m above the river, or 200 m above sea level. The Luzhniki Stadium (formerly the Lenin Stadium), where the opening and closing ceremony for the 1980 Summer Olympics took place, is right below, across the Moskva River. Next to it is the Novodevichy Convent, with its Naryshkin Baroque towers.
