The Ski Resort

Big Wood ski resort is located in North-West Russa on Mount Aikuainwichorr, the highest mountain on the peninsula of Kola, at 1,075m/3,527ft. You can look forward to 30km/18.6mi of slopes, most of them easy or intermediate. The 24 runs are serviced by a gondola, a chair lift, and five t-bars.

If you take t-bar K2 to the highest point of the ski resort at 1,047m/3,435ft, you should not count yourself as a beginner. At this point, only challenging runs go back down the hill. On the southern slope, snowboarders and freestylers find a terrain park located between runs 2 and 5.

The ski season in Kirowsk goes from November to May. During the polar night from November to January, most of the slopes are illuminated. The lifts operate daily until 6 pm, on Fridays and Saturdays even until 7 pm.
