Kirovsk is a small town at Kola peninsula at the north of Russia (close to the border with Finland). The town is located in the region of Khibiny mountains, which look more like big hills rather than small mountains. The total riding area is tiny and can be explored in two days. Riders are mostly locals or from the nearby Murmansk city. Most of the tourists come to ride there during march-april when it is snowy and sunny. The station is overcrowded at weekends.  READ NEXT: Freeriding, terrain parks and Pistes
