Where to ski?
For our guests we offer Bukovel Ski resort. It is a new large ski resort in the Ivano-Frankivsk oblast, 30 km southwest of Yaremche. It is Ukraine’s first European-class resort, with high-speed chair lifts, meticulously groomed slopes and snow-making machines, turnstyles for letting skiers through lines, and ubiquitous security personnel.
Bukovel currently boasts 16 ski lifts with roughly 50 km (31 mi) of pistes. There are 61 pistes sections of which 12 are Blue (beginners), 41 red (intermediates) and 8 are Black (experts). The longest piste is 5G at 2,106 m (6,909 ft). There are 11×4-person chair lifts, 1×3-person chair lift, 1×2-person chair lift and 1×T-bar.
