SOCHI, Russia, February 6 (R-Sport) – The Sochi 2014 ski-jump facility will be complete in July, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak said Wednesday.
The K-95 and K-125 ramps of the RusSki Gorki jumping center have already been tested during the ski-jumping and Nordic combined World Cup stages this season, and received positive feedback from the athletes.
"The remaining construction works include the completion of the surrounding infrastructure that should be finished by mid-summer," Kozak said.
The center is situated on the northern slope of Aibaga Ridge in Krasnaya Polyana. The ramps are located at the junction of two ridges to protect athletes from sidewinds that could pose serious problems during competition.
The 2,500-meter-long ski track for the Nordic combined event is adjacent to the complex.
The name of the complex evokes associations with the designation of the venue and roller coaster, also referred to as Russian Mountains.
