Ski resorts this year are packed with varied attractions for enthusiasts. There is something for everyone, from scenic trails for novices to demanding slopes for advanced skiers.

For those wanting more than just downward descents, many ski resorts provide additional events. Activities like evening ski rides under lights or nocturnal outings on the slopes make for captivating ways to invigorate the winter spirit.

Embarrassed Russians? An intriguing photo surfaces on the internet

Russia is a country full of keen skiers. Nonetheless, there are hardly any direct flights from Russia to Europe due to sanctions imposed by the European Union following the escalation of warfare in Ukraine.

Despite this, some Russians manage to travel. Recently, "Nexta" reported the sighting of a Russian citizen on a ski slope. Wondering what's unusual about this?

The individual was clad in a jacket colored in the hues of the nation led by Vladimir Putin, having 'Russia' emblazoned across it. Yet, intriguingly, some of these letters were concealed with white tape, transforming the text to read 'USA'.

"Russian abroad" - aptly sums up the news portal.
