Objects of the new winter developing kind of sport — naturban are represented. General problems of the development of ethnosport, taking their roots in simple and understandable for human activities, are described. The technical characteristics of the routes are given, the requirements for their location, the geography of facilities, the technology of construction and operation are defined. The possibility of placing tracks in the ski complexes is considered, which makes it possible to reduce the costs of creating facilities and improve the efficiency of the ski centers-donors. The material contains tables and photographs, which allows you to visually evaluate the new direction of sports construction. As a result of the analysis, sports facilities for naturban are classified as modern nature-friendly ethno-cultural sports facilities.
