Urban Skiing in Murmansk

In a small town in the Murmansk region, an amazing crew of athletes (some of whom training for the 2014 Olympics), turn abandoned industrial buildings into skiing playgrounds. Arctic snow is not for the faint of heart but it can inspire many: 
One of the first things we noticed here, was the surreal contrast between the beautiful Arctic nature and the rottening cityscapes that have suffered from decades of neglection.
The blurring of the boundary between sports and art, set against the severe beauty of the Arctic will leave you speechless.
