Record snowfall sends snowboardists explore Kiev's streets
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
A record blizzard that dumped more than 40mln tons of snow on Kiev over this weekend while was trouble for many, brought lots of extra fun to winter sport fans. Kiev is very hilly and quite a few streets are called "descents". One of the city's landmark streets is Andriyvskiy descent, snaking past 19th century buildings from upper town to lower town. It's paved with cobble stones and even walking on it requires some skills. It's been unofficially renamed to "AndriyvSKI" this weekend. Missing a chance to snowboard, ski, sled or just plain butt ride it all the way down was out of question for dozens of Kiev's winter sport fans. After all, this could be the last snow this season. Hopefully.
