Cold Phwoar: Russias Nippy Skiers

Now this is the kind of cold phwoar the West could get used to from Russia.

Local snowboarding beauties in the country's frozen east stripped down to skimpy shorts and bikini tops to show that the Alps have got nothing on these twin peaks in Siberia.

The promotional film - shot by the region's tourist board - is designed to encourage skiers to nip over to the region's Sheregesh resort.

"We are quite remote but we're up and coming.

"We can't guarantee a show like this every day but we're pretty relaxed out here in Siberia.

"And we have the best snowboarding powder anywhere in Europe," said a tourist board spokesman.

Siberia is on a drive to draw more tourists away from Moscow to visit the country's frozen east, where temperatures dip to minus 30 degrees Celsius in winter.

Locals plan to open a Yeti park this year to cash in on frequent sightings of the mythical beast in the area.

Sheregesh deputy mayor Igor Idimeshev, 48, said: "Now, if the girls can tempt out some ski-ing Yetis, then we really will be in business."
