The Salma Ski Resort in Polyarnye Zori hosted skiing and snowboarding competitions for employees of North-Western Phosphorous Company. This is the fifth year the Company and its primary trade union have worked together to hold the tournament.

Last Saturday, over 60 Company employees (both athletes and spectators) gathered in the sun at the ski resort to enjoy the fresh air and the competitive spirit with their colleagues, most of whom are already good friends.

Below are the winners of this friendly competition:
