Video: Driving a car on a ski piste / snow park

click for larger size imageWe had great fun skiing last August in NZ (see image on the right) and after driving up some of the roads to the ski areas there we do understand that a good 4W drive comes really handy.

But what Ken Block does with his Subaru in this video is quite unique. He’s driving down the piste jumping his rally car in the snow parks and “snakes” down on the boarders…
