Protasov Yar is a historic area located in Solomenskiy and partly in Goloseevsky district of Kiev. It stretches down the southeastern slope of mount Baty along the same street and the descent of Nikolai Amosov. In its lower part Protasov Yar falls into the valley of the river Lybid, where you can see the train platform Protasov Yar, which was opened in 1957.
In 1998, a ski complex was started here-- the first and only ski resort in Kiev, for which Protasov Yar is actually famous. It is the centre of Olympic training of national teams of Ukraine in skiing and snowboarding, the venue of the national and international competitions in Alpine skiing and snowboarding. So the people of Kiev know exactly where they can go skiing and snowboarding in cold weather.
