A cottage community is being constructed near a biathlon stadium on the Psekhako Ridge. It is a part of the Mountain Olympic Village: sportsmen participating in ski and biathlon competitions will live here during the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi.

The cottage community is being built near the Biathlon and Ski Complex: according the requirements of international sports organizations, sportsmen must be accommodated at the altitudes of their competitions. By virtue of the community’s good location, sportsmen will be able to get on foot from their comfortable cottages to ski and biathlon tracks within 10 minutes.

The cottage community is situated on a shore of a beautiful artificial lake executing not only decorative function: during competitions water from the lake will be used for creation of artificial snow.
