Tracks for athletes and tourists will be divided on Mount Moroznaya in Kamchatka. Konstantin Khmelevsky, Minister of Sports of the Kamchatka Territory, spoke about this as part of a discussion on the development of extreme sports and tourism at the forum "Far East - Winter of Discovery".

“Moroznaya Mountain. We have plans for its further development. Today it is shared between both athletes and tourists. We started designing another route to separate the flow of tourists and athletes. The preparation of snow on these tracks is also different. It is difficult for a novice tourist on the artificial snow cover, which is made on Moroznaya for athletes. My opinion is that we should separate these two clusters, also for security reasons. And we should not focus only on sports or only on tourism. Development should go in parallel,” said Konstantin Khmelevsky.
