Moscow opens world's largest urban snowboarding track
Moscow is now home to the world's largest urban course for jibbing, a type of snowboarding with obstacles, the Russian sports facility's managers said.
The two courses - one for professionals and another for beginners - opened in downtown Moscow's Gorky Park.
"This is a unique project, unequalled in the world. Anybody can come here with their equipment and practice completely for free," Maxim Zinorf, one of the managers of the Burton X Gorky Park, said.
The facility is "the world's largest urban course for practicing jibbing", Zinorf, who competes in the extreme sport, said.
"The course will remain here during the entire winter season and enthusiasts will not have to travel great distances to practice snowboarding," Zinorf said.
