Polina Kiseleva, director of Ol-Gul, told This Is Taimyr that this year the ski season in the northern city opens earlier than usual.
“The earliest time we opened the season was the beginning of November. This year has turned out to be a record one: because of the weather, the opening will happen a week earlier, on October 23. And the very next day we are waiting for everyone at our holiday. Welcome, it will be fun”, said Polina Kiseleva.
Citizens are expected at the health holiday this Saturday, October 24. The beginning is at 2 pm. The Ol-Gul administration asks the Norilsk residents to wear masks in the ski base building.
Skiing is popular among the Norilsk people. Every year they participate in marathons at Ol-Gul. The most popular of them is the Nornickel Ski Track.
