The project

Northern Caucasus Resorts is one of the most ambitious projects in the Russian ski sector. The Arkhyz resort, created in 2011, is one of them.

After equipping the south slope of the Arkhyz resort with several ropeways including a 4-seater fixed chairlift, an 8-seater gondola and a 6-seater hood chairlift, NCR turned to retrofitting the heart of the resort, using an architecture that favours noble materials such as stone and wood, before undertaking the development of the north slope for which POMA built a gondola lift in three sections in the northern part of the Arkhyz skiing area, marking a major milestone in the resort's skiing experience.

This new link within the resort, up to a final altitude of 2505 m, opens access to new slopes traced in the snow-covered valleys or directly in the forest.

They talk about it

Arkhyz gondola lift

Our constructive dialogue with POMA is not only about the provision of equipment, but also about technical supervision, local personnel training and support for our company’s environmental initiatives. That is why we appreciate working with these professionals whom we can trust at all stages of the project.
