Almost all this snow - artificial, made by snow guns and layed only for 35 days. For Moscow it can not be, actually. But it really was this winter.

Это фонари. Вся эта горка искусственная - насыпана за несколько лет посреди чистого поля - горнолыжно-сноубордический склон "Новопеределкино"

Снег хоть и искусственный, но красивый и фактурный.
Однако немного пустовато и неба много...

Actually it is normal to mix artificial and natural snow on ski slopes - in order to prepare hard surface. But this year natural snow was "cat's tears" (negligible), and slopes without artificial snow were "brown-white". Usually we have snow suitable for ski from December to April. This year it was only from February to February. Ski resorts suffers serious troubles. For example this hill is also artificial. Each summer they try make it higher based on earned money during winter. This summer seems it will not grow at all
