Hillside news #1/111: Water edition – ice swimming time for ski jumpers and a ferry trip for Adam Małysz

The second ski jumping weekend of the season is fast approaching. This time, our ski jumping heroes will get a taste of the winter wonderland that is Ruka, Finland. But first, let’s check what they’ve been up to during the past week.

 

Ice swimming in Russia

A lot of us associate Nizhny Tagil with the famous swimming pool where the water is on the cool side… to say the least. This year, some of the ski jumpers have yet again decided to brave the elements and try some ice swimming. The tough guys included the Swiss, Austrian and Polish jumpers.

Mateja has already arrived in Ruka

The former ski jumper turned coach is already in the place to be – Ruka, Finland – and he decided to give us a sneak peek at the beautiful wintry landscapes… which we’ll probably have to wait quite some time for.

Swedish views for Wąsek

Apparently, you can find impressive views in other places than just Kuusamo. Just take a look at Falun, Sweden through Paweł Wąsek’s eyes.

Harri Olli as a service technician?

And last but not least, do you remember this controversial ski jumper from Finland? Harri Olli has taken an interest in waxing skis. A new career path, perhaps?
