Outside Russia, where can I combine cross country skiing with Russian language immersion?

I'm a reasonably good nordic skier, and speak low-intermediate Russian. Now I want to spend around a month somewhere improving both. The sort of place I'm after would enable me to spend half of each day in lessons / immersing myself in Russian language (ideally a decent sized town at least) and the other half training on a decent and varied network of well-maintained cross country skiing trails. Ruling out Russia and Belarus to avoid the need for visas lands me in the area of the Baltic states or Ukraine I guess - but does anyone have any specific ideas or experience? Thanks!
