Gazpromneft filling station #304

The journey begins! To make the road go smoothly, we recommend stopping at a proven gas station - fill a full tank of quality fuel, buy water and snacks.

Кулига парк

Ski Areas

A famous park, a real entertainment complex at any time of year. We won't stay in it for long. I think you can only take dogsled racing from the whole list. We're gonna have steeper slopes. On weekends the park is open from 10.00 to 21.00, on weekdays from 15.00 to 21.00, except Monday. On Monday, the park is closed.

Irbit State Motorcycle Museum

Making a little stop in Irbit. There's a motorcycle museum waiting for us from the local mechanical plant! Legends of the Soviet motorcycle industry! The motorcycle is the spirit of freedom! Four wheels carry the body, and two wheels carry the soul. On Sunday and Monday the museum is closed, on other days it is open from 09.00 to 17.00.

Загородный клуб "Берлога"

Svoi ya Nashi Café.

We're stopping for lunch in Regue. The locals recommend Svoi da Nashi Café. We take their advice and go there. Opposite the cafe is the Urals Gem Museum.

House of blacksmith Kirillov

For over 50 years, the master self-taught created and embellished his creation. Now many offer huge sums for this architectural monument. The house became a visiting card of the village and the region, as well as a bright example of the so-called naive art.

At last we have reached our goal - the ski complex "Gora Yezhovaya". It has everything, except the mountains and various ways to get off them, there are places to stay, cafes and restaurants. This is where we're staying for the night and this is where we're having dinner. The lifts are open until 20.00, except Saturday and Monday. On Saturday till 21.00, and on Monday till 18.00. So we still have time to go for a little ride and stretch out before tomorrow's races.
