Walt Cole (UK) from Russia writes:

Still very early days in the history of this resort. There are plans for over 50 lifts spread across 5 mountain villages, to be built since the resort commenced operation less than a decade ago. As of 2022, there are only 8 of those lifts built and a 9th is near completion, and just one of the mountain villages has been built so far but the second in under construction now. As fast as they build infrastructure and accommodation, it seems to not be enough. Demand is growing faster than supply, leading to accommodation shortages and spiraling prices. This should change as some large scale accommodation projects come online in the next 2 years. Ski runs are wide but need more gradient variety - blue, red and black runs are all of near identical steepness and width. There is tremendous upside potential for the resort and I would be confident that as the resort expands to fill its footprint and its demand profile of the next decade, decade and a half, that the niggles will be resolved and Arkhyz will overtake Rosa Khutor to become the largest and best ski resort in Russia. It has higher base, higher top, more vertical, better snow, better snow temperatures, much larger ski area. What it doesnt have yet are the cool bars and restaurants that Rosa has, it doesnt have almost any on-mountain restaurants (and bars), which make skiing in Europe so much fun, it doesn't yet have an airport less than an hour away (As Rosa has, although I am told that an airport near Zelenchukskaya (40-50 mins away) is planned as demand grows.
