Hundreds have been out on the slopes of Rosa Khutor in Russia for the annual BoogelWoogel mountain festival.
It has been taking place since 2016.
In 2018 2,000 skiers and snowboarder turned out and it broke the Guinness world record for the world’s largest downhill ski in swimsuits.
This year 738 riders and around 30,000 spectators gathered to watch and cheer on participants.
The organisers said the number of spectators has noticeably increased as many Russians turned to domestic holiday spots due to the closed borders amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Such festivals have become popular at Russia’s ski resorts to mark the end of the winter season.
