Book the Grelka Fest Tour and join the craziest Russian party that takes place on a ski slope!

The Grelka festival is the main attraction of Sheregesh known for bikini-clad girls descending from Green Mount. Skiers and snowboarders dressed in bikinis, swimsuits and carnival costumes hit the mountain slopes of the Sheregesh Ski Resort in mid-April. By this time, the air in Sheregesh warms up to + 15 ° C, so that the festival participants are comfortable in their bikinis and shorts.

Visitors to the Grelka Fest could also enjoy “Miss Sheregesh” bikini contest, extreme ski jumping in the pool, as well as numerous music shows and events.

Sheregesh is known for incredibly soft and powder snow that creates great conditions for freeride. The forest on the slopes prevents avalanches and low heights make the acclimatization fairly easy.

    The name Grelk or Grelka, where does it come from?? Is it Russian?? Asking because my Lastname is Grelk

      Good question!
      Grelka (Rus: ГРЕЛКА) is a Russian word for a hot-water bottle, a container filled with hot water used to provide warmth. The name reflects the hot nature of the festival 🙂

      Hi Luke!
      I think you should take several lessons first. There are some instructors in the resort who speak a little English.
