SCHUCHINSK


Resort city in northern Kazakhstan, in Akmola Region. The city got its name due to the abundance of pike-fishes (in russian: "schuka") in the nearest lake.

The city is located in the beautiful area, surrounded by evergreen forests and deep blue lakes. 

Population of the city is 45000. 


Schuchinsk is proud for its ski traditions. It gave to the world famous Kazakh skiers as Olympic champion Vladimir Smirnov and WSC medalist Nikolay Chebotko.


Thanks to its excellent ski and biathlon tracks, as well as excellent weather conditions, the city is a favorite base for Kazakhstanis and foreign athletes in winter sports.  Modern ski jumping hills K-125 (HS 140) and K-90 (HS 99) were opened in Schuchinsk three years ago. This was the beginning of the development of such new sports for the city as Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined. After a forced break, two years later, Schuchinsk will again host leading flying skiers from all over the world.


VENUE - NATIONAL SKI CENTER

 

National Ski Center was opened in 2018 and officially is the largest center of winter sports in Kazakhstan. 

There are ski-biathlon stadium with 16 FIS ski courses, a rollerski courses, hotel for 200 persons, a swimming pool, gyms and ski jumping hills K 125 and K 90 at the territory of Center.

 

Ski jumping hills are located at an altitude of 450 meters above sea level and are equipped with a modern wind-protection system that allows to train and compete in hard windy conditions. The height of the hills tower is 82 m from the base (as a 25-stores building). It offers a beautiful view of the city, mountains and lake Schuchiye through glass fences.

 

Since 2018, Schuchinsk has hosted international FIS Cross-Country Skiing and Rollerski competitions. In the same year, the first training jumps were made on the jumping hills of the Center. Then two summer world records were immediately set: Slovenian Jurij Tepeš made a record 156 meters jump, but touched the surface with his hand upon landing, and Kazakhstani Sergey Tkachenko made a clean jump of 151 meters - this is the world's longest successful summer ski jump.

 

In July 2019, the FIS Cup and the FIS Continental Ski Jumping Cup were successfully held, in which athletes from 11 countries took part. Read more about the past competitions here.
