Urban skiing, courtesy of Finnish crew Nipwitz. Like skate videos with snow, ambient soundtrack, and a pinch of travelogue. Here is Murmanst Oblast and Sarajevo.

All.I.Can's Street Segment is one of my favorite videos of urban skiing.

Great music.

I came to the thread to post the link mrzarquon posted. It is worth noting, however, that JP Auclair (the skiier in in the All.I.Can segment) isn't wearing a helmet and that sucks. Someone in the town next door to where this was filmed cracked his skull doing the same thing and may not recover. :(

As a lifelong skier, I now understand why people like skateboarding videos so much.

Because, yes, let's add getting hit by a car to the list of hazards that are associated with skiing.

And, holy crap, what was their budget on that film? Is the whole thing any good?

This is fantastic. I'm both a skateboarder and skiier, but i was a much better skiier. I still skate, but don't own skis. This has convinced me to change that.

And holy god, I had no idea Sarajevo was so beautiful.

And the interaction in English (which is nobody's mother tongue) with the policeman at the end of the second video is charming.

I think Austria and (what used to constitute) Yugoslavia are the most awesomely beautiful areas on the planet. I was lucky enough in my youth to ski all over that part of the world.

Schmod - I downloaded the whole movie from iTunes. Yes, every segement, in it's own way, is pretty amazing and fun to watch, and very well produced, although the street skiing segment is probably the best.

Živi Sarajevo! Fun seeing the guys ski there and the kids. Bosnian kids run in packs, and rain keeps them in more than snow.
You just saw why skiers go practice in Sarajevo, 40¢ a run up the Zića, and down. If I skied I'd be all over that.

These were really good. I've been on a snowboarding trip to Sarajevo before but, perhaps unsurprisingly, it was nothing like the Nipwitz version.

Almost snow parkour.
