To fight the impact of decades of violence and drug addiction, young Afghans have taken on a new sport, snowboarding, which is picking up steam on snowy mountains of the country.

To popularize the new-found sport, a group of young men has set up the country’s first snowboarding federation who travel to different parts of the war-battered country to conduct snowboarding sessions. EFE-EPA
