Rosa Khutor set to be in the top 50 largest ski resorts

“The increased size takes it from outside the top 100 to 48th position worldwide on piste length,” said Chris Schrahe of PisteLength.com, a business which accurately measures and certifies the size of ski areas and publishes and annual report comparing ski area sizes.
“With regard to vertical transport capacity by the lifts it climbed from 98th to 28th,” he added.
