Here also is included the area for the cross country skiing, which give the opportunity for the about 80 km common length.
For the summer season are provided variety of tourism activities, including walking- tours, eco- paths, safari photos, mountain baking, horse riding, hiking, flying with delta planer, fishing, gathering herbs, wild fruits and mushrooms, swimming pools, toboggan gullies. This is a serious precondition for the growing of the resort accommodation up to 18 000 times.
