A Line in the Snow - Greece:  It's a film about skiing in Greece. 

With a desperate lack of snow in the Alps this season, the team were looking as far away as Morocco and Nepal for snowy inspiration.

They had been told that there was good snow in Greece, but they didn't believe it.

However, with just five days planning they headed to Greece to explore the beautiful mountains of the north and meet the people that live and work there.

Dog sledding in the Alps.

Some lovey aerial drone footage of the 2017 Lekkarod dog sled race in the French Alps.

Monday 3rd April

Daowaga translates as "the shores of the lake" and is what Tahoe is referred to by the indigenous Washoe people.

Daowaga Daze was filmed in seven days over President's Week.

As a result of long lift lines and resort closures the boys resorted to split boards, snowshoes and snowmobiles to get up the mountain.

It has been an incredible winter in Tahoe, and this is just a slice of it.

Saturday 1st April

Skiing in a straitjacket !

We can't get our head around this one!

It is April Fools Day for sure as we write this, but it seems that this guy's quest is genuine.

Meet Jay DeBaggis, he's a man that likes to do things a little differently.

He is trying to ski 60mph without using his arms or ski poles. 

He is intending to set the speed world record for skiing in a straitjacket on April 3 at Arapahoe Basin.


It seems he's been skiing without ski poles for around 10 years, and knows what he's doing.

We wish him luck on April 3rd.



Xavier de Le Rue and Sam Anthamattan set off for a big adventure to the Changbaishan Volcano in China.

They shake off their guides and guards and and ski off into the lake sitting in the crater.
