The Rosa Khutor Alpine Center (Russian: Роза Хутор) is a ski resort located 40 km (25 mi) from the Black Sea. Rosa Khutor will host all Sochi 2014 Alpine Skiing disciplines: Downhill, Combined (downhill and slalom), Giant Slalom and the Super Giant Slalom. The total length of the competition tracks is 20 km.

The name originates from the geographical name “Rosa Khutor”, located at Aibiga Ridge along the Rosa Khutor plateau near Krasnaya Polyana.

All slopes were developed by Bernard Russi, a world-renowned ski architect from the International Ski Federation. The majority of the slopes at Rosa Khutor face northeast, with the backside slopes facing southwest.
