No more need for mountains, no snow, a slope and let’s go. A group of Belgian friends had fun going down a hill of black rock in Charleroi (Belgium) in the old mining area.
There is no snow here, but black rock for these Belgians who are orphans from resorts and winter sports. In Charleroi (Belgium), it is in a former mining basin that a group of friends got equipped from head to toe to hurtle down the 250 meters of vertical drop that presented themselves that day in front of them. “We can’t go very far, we have to find ways to keep ourselves ‘very local’
