Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin went skiing together at the Russian ski resort of Krasnaya Polyana, a venue for 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, on Sunday.

Last year, they also spent the new year holidays at the same resort, which will host the alpine skiing events at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

Besides skiing and snowmobile, they also talked, took pictures with other tourists and signed autographs.

The duo also enjoyed some time at a cafe. Last year, it was Medvedev who treated Putin.

The Russian government has planned to spend more than 1 trillion rubles (33 billion US dollars) to prepare for the Games, said the RIA Novosti news agency.

Russia's black sea resort city of Sochi won the rights to hold the 2014 Winter Olympics in July, 2007, the first ever for Russia.
