Gubakha Skiing Resort
As long as we are in Russia and it's still winter we really wanted to do some winter sports. We were recommended to visit Gubakha as one of the most popular skiing resorts in Perm region. Phoebe is a professional skier and therefore was keen to try the slopes in Russia!
The hill is quite small but the terrain is very varied and challenging. Especially through the trees as it is quite dense. It is a great place to ski tour (hiking up) however, as the views are beautiful and it isn’t too steep. We had visited the place a few times already and last time I managed to persuade Ella and Athena to join me in a bit of skiing! We also sampled the local Azerbaijanian restaurant and befriended many locals. This was a great opportunity to practice our conversational Russian and to get to know typical ways of life. We even tried out our first banya experience, thanks to some very welcoming permians, something which Ella in particular really really enjoyed.
