Who Says You Can’t Ski In The City?


There are people who live to ski. And this time of year can be rough on a lot of them.

Winter’s here. But it’s not. There’s snow. In some places. Fresh powder way up in the mountains. Grey slush in the city where you are.

What’s a guy to do?

Ski the city…?

You can’t ski a city.

Can you…?

Last year, Canadian ski movie filmmaker Dave Mossop (Green Cap) and buddies JP Auclair (visor), Rory Bushfield and Andrew Hardingham decided to see if that concept would fly.

Using the streets of Nelson, Trail and Rossland, BC, they put together one of the most spectacular ski sequences you’ll ever see.

Has the age of “urban skiing” arrived?

You tell me.
