The stars of the ski slopes were truly out in the Moscow sky at the International Ski Federation (FIS) World Cup Freestyle aerials competition in March. The event took place at Sparrow Hills, near Moscow State University, where a 52-meter artificial mountain was specially built for the occasion. In addition to envying the snow conditions produced for the competition, snow-deprived Muscovite ski enthusiasts got a chance to watch some spectacular jumps. Spotted among the spectators: President Vladimir Putin and then-presidential candidate Dmitri Medvedev.
