Frosty winter is coming to Moscow. And although mountain skiing and snowboarding are one of the most popular winter sports, cross-country skiing can bring a lot of moments of joy. About a hundred beautiful trails for cross-country skiing appear in the capital every winter. Find some of them in this article.

KOLOMENSKOE

The route stretches along the outskirts of the Kolomenskoye Reserve, down to the embankment of the Moscow River. It makes 7 km one way. The track is fairly flat and dense.  There are no slides, but in some places in the forest along the embankment you can climb higher (10 meters) and roll with the wind. Rental is located at the fairground (where honey is sold in the fall). The rental office is open from 11.00 to 19.00. Payment in cash only.

TIMIRYAZEVSKY FOREST

Locals like to go skiing here. The territory is flat, without slides – so no fun for extreme lovers. But here it is very convenient to teach children skiing. There is no rental, so take everything you need with you.

IZMAILOVSKY PARK


There are traditionally laid ski tracks in the park – long and short. So you can choose one depending on your skills. There are three rental offices - at the main entrance, at the Sokolinaya Mountain and at the Severnaya Square. A deposit is an ID or 3000 rubles (cash only). By the way, it is now convenient to come here from other districts of the capital using the MCC. The station "Izmailovo" is located right in front of the entrance to the park.

SOKOLNIKI

What is the advantage of this place? Here you can not only ski, but just walk in the park and have a snack. The length of ski tracks is 11 km. Snow is laid by snowmobile in such a way that the ski track does not lose shape during the thaw. There is a rental here

FILYOVSKY PARK


There are three ski tracks in Filyovsky Park. The shortest - 1 km, the longest - 5 km. Rental (near the main entrance) is open from 10.00 to 22.00.

POKROVSKOYE-STRESHNEVO


One of the most popular national ski trails is located here. The length is 5 km. There is no rental.

OLYMPIC VILLAGE PARK 

Here is a professional track where you can train with instructors. To do this,  you will need  an adidas Universal card. The length of the tracks: 3 and 5 km. There is a rental service here.

TRAINING AND SPORTS CENTRE "PLANERNAYA"

Excellent conditions for skiers. There are long slopes, and flat grounds. The length of the tracks: 5, 10, 20 km. There is a rental service available here.
