Attending 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia

Jump to last reply

Going to a Winter Olympics is on my husband's bucket list. Add to that, that freestyle pipe & park skiing are in for the first time (older son's favorite sport) and my husband speaks Russian (although has never been to Russia) he has it in his head it's a great idea for a family trip.

First, wondering if anyone has been to Sochi? Any advice for getting there, particularly NOT flying through Moscow? We are coming from the east coast of the U.S. and could go out of NYC, BOS or Montreal.

Second, anyone here ever attended the Winter Games anywhere? How easy is it to get tickets to venues? Honestly, would could care less about the big events, like figure skating and hockey. Probably more on the hill alpine events (not necessarily ski racing though), and perhaps some nordic. How much did you see hotel rooms, etc. jacked up for the Olympics over the usual cost.

Any other advice is appreciated as well! Thanks
