Inspection of Olympic sites

November 27, 2013, Sochi

Vladimir Putin inspected the Gornaya Karusel mountain ski and tourist resort, which includes the RusSki Gorki ski jumping facility and the media village.

Sberbank CEO German Gref briefed the President on the state of preparations at the centre, which is one of the key alpine skiing infrastructure sites for the 2014 Olympics.

The RusSki Gorki facility comprises the modern K-95 and K-125 Olympic ski ramps, and the specially designed artificial covering makes it possible to hold competitions there year-round.

At the media village, Mr Putin looked over one of the three-star hotels that will house journalists accredited to cover the Games.
