Russia: The first snowfall in the mountains of Sochi

On September 3 the first snowfall occurred at Krasnaya Polyana in Sochi. The usual winter precipitation in early September was a surprise for the locals. For example, last year the first snowfall occurred in early November – two months later.

The snow was seen on the CCTV cameras of the ski-lift of the Black Pyramid piste of Krasnaya Polyana resort. The height above sea level there is 2375 meters. At the same time the resort clarified that the temperature did not drop below 0 degrees Celsius.

Despite the unexpected snow in the mountains, in the coastal part of Sochi the weather remained usual for this time of year – around +20 degrees. However, all the beaches were closed due to the storm, and in the village of Loo, high waves broke a 70-meter stretch of concrete embankment
