If local flavor and the personality of the ski village are as important to you as the quality of the slopes, then Dombay Resort is sure to capture your heart. The skiing is definitely first rate, with numerous runs for downhillers with any degree of experience. On top of that, the Karachay people have been nurturing this mountain gem for generations, and it shows from the moment you drive into the village.

No doubt you’ll leave with unique souvenirs, so leave a little extra space in your luggage. In addition, be sure to leave extra space in your heart to accommodate the local flavor. We’ll organize a cultural exchange over dinner with local Karachay, and you’ll experience their traditions of hospitality and respect for guests first-hand. Don’t be surprised if you re-evaluate your own cultural priorities after such an unforgettable personal touch.

Lodging convenient to the lifts and equipment rental shops are second to none at Dombay, as it’s only a two-minute walk to either from your accommodations. As a family destination, Dombay also offers tubing for children, as well as numerous day trips for those seeking all types of adventure (snow mobiles, four-wheelers, ice climbing, etc.). You’ll never lack for something to do in this gorgeous mountain gem.
