Where is Sochi, Russia? Powder7 is here for you.

By | 02/14/2013

Found it! Sochi is located on the eastern side of the Black Sea just north of Georgia and south of Ukraine. This will be the first time that Russia has hosted the Olympics (the Soviet Union hosted the Moscow Summer Games in 1980 for all you trivia nerds). Apparently they’ll be putting in close to $800 million in infrastructure and building new venues. Check out the video below to see what the Olympic venue might look like next year. This video was taken just last week. I saw lots of great snow, fences, security cameras, cool culture, and a shredworthy superpipe. Get stoked!

About Katie

Katie grew up skiing in Michigan. Ever since the beginning, she's liked to straightline it. Even after a couple years of ski school during vacation, she still refused to turn, much to her mother's chagrin. Katie has since learned how to control her skiing and can make turns. Along with skiing, Katie is the lone snowboarder at Powder7. She's a super fast, technically skilled, rider. She likes to do mad pow slashers and steep tree runs but also appreciates perfect groomers. She's ridden on slopes from Vermont to Michigan to Utah but spends most of her time riding Colorado. With her East Coast experience, she knows what ice is and believes she has never seen it in Colorado.
