When it comes to snowboarding destinations, it doesn’t get much grittier than Kiruna. The northernmost town in Sweden, this is a place where winter temperatures are regularly -20°C and snow coats the place like white concrete. It’s a place that’s rarely visited by anyone besides the miners who come to extract iron ore in its vast pits – and the occasional snowboarder in search of unconquered urban structures.
