The Russian National Olympic Committee is planning to build a new ski resort in Bashkiria
The Russian National Olympic Committee is planning to build a new ski resort in Bashkiria. Bashkiria Sports Minister Vladimir Samorodov said that an agreement had been reached between the National Olympic Committee's Leonid Tyagachyov and Bashkirian Prime Minister Rafael Baydavletov. The resort will be built in the flanks of the Maly Yamantau mountains in the Belorets Region of Bashkiria. Samorodov said the future ski complex and resort would be unique in many ways. The landscape and climate will provide for training and competition in practically all areas of mountain skiing. The flanks of the mountains drop 700 meters and the ski trails, which are 6-7.5 kilometers long, correspond to international standards for skiing. In time, Bashkiria could host the Russian and European downhill skiing championships, said Samorodov. He also said that the future site of the resort already has an infrastructure including electricity and automobile and railroad links. The unique conditions will also provide the chance to build a first-class health resort. The popular Bashkirian sanatorium Assy is also located nearby. The Bashkirians also intend to build a helicopter pad, sky and biathlon stadiums and a golf course near the resort. Inzera will cover a total area of over 2 thousand hectares and provide approximately 3 thousand new jobs. Part of the territory of the future resort is on the South Ural reserve and development there would require an agreement with the Russian government. Nevertheless, Samorodov says that 'the question shall be decided especially since the construction of the new resort falls under the control of Russian President Vladimir Putin.' The design of the resort is currently being developed. Builders will be determined by a tender. It is anticipated that the cost of construction will be financed by the federal budget, Bashkirian government's budget and private investors. Samorodov said that Bashkirian energy companies have already expressed their interest in the project. Bashkiria is currently home to 15 downhill ski slopes in Ufa, Sterlitamak, Salavat and other regions
