Uzbekistan has very mild winters. This provides an excellent opportunity for healthy recreation and sports development at this season.
The dramatic growth of attention to winter sports in Uzbekistan can be seen in such projects as the world class ski resort Amirsoy in Bostanlyk district of Tashkent region, as well as the Humo Arena winter palace in Tashkent.
Since 2017, the country has created 4 federations for the development and promotion of winter sports: the Ice Hockey Federation, the Figure skating and Short track Federation, the Curling Federation and the Ski Federation.
The federations will have to organize the activities of children’s and youth schools in winter sports, prepare athletes for national teams, open branches in the regions and create ice palaces and training camps.
