Dombaj at a glance

Dombai is a small Russian village whose main claim to fame (besides skiing) used to be the fact that Maxim Gorky, a close friend of Stalin, had his summer Dacha in the mountains here, and the Russians established a ski resort in the area. The resort has a good snow record and if lifts are operational its possible to ski year round. The old chairlifts and cable car have been replaced by modern high capacity equivalents so the big queues that used to build up are less of a problem. The resort has cult status for off-piste 'boarders and skiers but is often dangerous away from the marked trails because of avalanche risk.
