You have no other chance. But our ski house, which we finished last year and put into service, is very warm, beautiful, spacious. People are resting here with their families until the evening, having a nice time in a different environment and going down again. ” said.

We have neighboring provinces. If beautiful environments are formed, there will be intense interest. If larger companies and hotels come into play, we will provide people with better services. We hosted tens of thousands of people here in winter last year. Groups from home and abroad came. Our aim is not to make money at the ski resort, but to provide good services to the people of our city. ”
