The avalanche rescue service in Krasnaya Polyana

Rosa Khutor in southern Russia’s Krasnaya Polyana is one of the world’s newest ski resorts and the site of the 2014 Winter Olympics. Skiers and snowboarders from all over come here to carve up the slopes, but wherever there is snow and mountains, there is always the possibility of an avalanche. One of the main responsibilities of any ski resort is to prevent the chances of an uncontrolled avalanche. Nevertheless, there are some times when an avalanche is simply unavoidable, and that’s where Krasnaya Polyana’s avalanche control team comes in.
