Urban Skiing Adventures in Murmansk Oblast, Russia
Imagine you’re in a world of decay. Buildings all around you are falling down, the people you see are so weathered by their existence that they blend into the landscape – Welcome to suburban Russia. In our cities, urban skiing is like punk rock. Taking your skis to a handrail is like wailing on a guitar and screaming about anarchy. In Russia – urban skiing is like a comet in the night sky. You don’t even have to say “urban skiing” because skis and skiers are so foreign to this land – for all the rural Russians know, we take our skis in the elevator and ride down the stairwell everyday.
Watch these guys ride and try to tell us you don’t feel something different.
