Urban skiing adventure to the Murmansk Oblast in Russia.

The ski shots are amazing but the scenery of a post industrial and decaying Russia is why you want to watch this film.  The decay, pollution, and failure of the Murmansk Oblast region of Russia on that kind of scale is just staggering.  That despite it’s natural resource wealth. 

Flatlight Films also put together another fantastic video of skiing Sarajevo.

How great is the idea of an urban ski lift in the middle of the city?  Of course even if we had that kind of snow in Saskatoon, we would find a way to make sure that no one had that kind of fun here. 

I also loved the end of the video where the police officer was questioning them and then just kind of said, “forget it” and walked away.
