History:

In 1964, local residents built the Snezhinka ski centre in Ulan Ude, in the Arshan district. In addition to the slopes and the ski run, a 60-metre ski jump was built there. For the construction of the inrun tower, what was available was used, such as door parts from locomotives, old radiators and rails. The area where the sports base was located belonged to the railway and was used by thousands of people, although the ski jump itself was not very popular with the local athletes.
For financial reasons, the railway wanted to sell off the entire site. In 2010, Snezhinka was put up for auction and, although a new, private, owner was soon found who modernised the base into a popular leisure destination, no one bothered to repair the ski jump and it still stands abandoned today. Interestingly, at first the local people were not aware of the transaction and when he tried to dismantle the old facility by sending a team to cut it into pieces, this was thwarted by sportspeople and ski jumping fans. In fact, the old inrun tower posed some danger, with youngsters trying to climb the rusty ladder, which is why Andrei Dzyubenko, head of the Physical Culture and Sports Department of the Ulaanbaijan Administration, suggested that the new owner should do something about it so that he would not be held responsible for any accidents. As a result of the unsuccessful demolition, negotiations have been undertaken with the builders of the ski jump to somehow solve the problem, certainly the reconstruction of the facility is not planned, especially as it would be more expensive than putting up a new one.
