To the outside world, the resort of Sheregesh is as well known for Yeti as skiing or snowboarding.

Its trademarks are its 'famous Siberian frost, and lack of apres ski' plus a tedious eight hour trek from Moscow, according to the World Snowboard Guide.
But look at the video here and it's not all abject misery in the deep cold.

As the world recently discovered, Sheregesh is soon to host a Yeti Park with a hotel and museum dedicated to the elusive creature which, say its proponents, has been sighted in the surrounding mountains a number of times in recent years.

Igor Idimeshev, 48, deputy head of Sheregesh's local council.
'For me, having Yetis here means something much more than the simple tourist attraction.'
But with sights like this on the pistes, it can't be long before even the Yetis come out of hiding and join in the fun!
