ORENBURG, November 16. /TASS/. Ski season at the Dolina tourist complex in the Kuvandyksky district of the Orenburg region will open in December, a source in the regional government told TASS. The season will begin later than usual due to weather conditions since there is no snow to ski on.
“The season in Kuvandyk will begin depending on weather conditions, is it set to start in early to mid-December. The staff has begun to make artificial snow to cover the slopes, when this work is done, the complex will open to tourists,” Orenburg region Vice-Governor Pavel Samsonov said after examining the complex.
