Gennady, 30, Vinnytsia. There is a lot of entertainment in Krasia. After skiing, the day looks very fun. We sledged with the children, took a steam bath and took a walk in the mountains. And we will remember bathing in cast-iron vats for the rest of our lives!

Igor, 28 years old, Lviv. “It is very convenient that the lower station of the resort has equipment rental and a restaurant. There is a ski school with skilled instructors. It is also good that the cafe and other food outlets are located between 1 and 2 lifts.

Diana, 35, Kharkiv. “The longest gorgeous ski slope in Transcarpathia, more than 3 km long, shook. The descents here are designed for different levels of training of skiers, which is very convenient for beginners. In addition, there is a very developed infrastructure, so there is not a large concentration of vacationers. We were also pleased with the democratic prices.
