If you wonder, what young people do in Ust Nera, the administrative center of Yakutia’s Oymyakon region, especially on a sunny winter day, here is the answer. They take snowboards and snowboarding gears, get to the closest mountain, climb, climb, climb, and enjoy riding on the snow from uphill.

Take a look at pictures taken by Egor Fedorov and his friends this past April. Click thumbnails to see pictures in large sizes.

By the way, I should call the post «Snowboarding in the Siberian land of Stalin’s gulags,» as labour camps are all around that place and Ust Nera is located on the famous Kolyma Highway known mostly as the Road of Bones.

No special snowboarders’ camp at all. Total wildness.
