Participants of NACO Baku meeting visit Gabala VIDEO
Gabala, June 1 (AZERTAC). A group of participants of the News Agencies World Council (NACO), to be held in Baku on Monday, have visited the Gabala district.
The delegation included president of the News Agencies World Congress, president of Saudi Press Agency Abdullah Bin Fahd Al-Hussein, CEO of Press Association Clive Marshall, and others.
They visited “Tufan” summer and winter ski resort.
The first line of the ski resort was inaugurated this January by President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev. As part of the first stage of construction four cableways were fully built and the construction of five out of 10 pistes was completed.
The recreation area provides tourists with the opportunity to ride the cable car throughout the year, while in winter people can ski, use the services of a ski school, etc.
One of the useful aspects here was that tourists can select a suitable piste according to the degree of difficulty. The entire downhill track is equipped with the "artificial snow" system. In general, the “Tufan” summer and winter ski resort can serve 3,000 people a day.
The implementation of this project will open up opportunities for the development of skiing and other winter sports in the country. This will play an indispensable role in raising future athletes in winter sports.
The delegation then proceeded to the lower cableway station Riverside. This station can also be described as an "entrance to the complex". It is fully suited for the recreation of tourists and has a section selling and renting skis. In addition, there is a sporting goods store and a café here.
