Heavy snowfalls across Europe the last days and snow cover building up in many areas reminded us that its only a few more days before the lifts start running again. Here are two videos to warm you up for the new snow season soon to start in Europe, the U.S. and Canada.
The first one’s on a carnage at Fernie when about 150 people diving into Currie bowl at rope drop.
The second video is a great animation on the “dangers of snow” – about a bloodthirsty snow man hunting skiers and boarders.

Here’s a great time lapsed video of how to create an origami version of Evangelion Unit 01
Might be a bit tough to start with that art but still interesting to watch.
A bunch of jokesters have taken up the idea of the “Unassembled Snowman For Sale” and are selling “Colorado Blizzard” snow on Ebay. Offers range from organic, genuine snow from Blizzards, snow balls to own a part of the Blizzards. We have counted more then 50 sellers some with multiple offers currently online…
With the weekend coming up we would like to suggest to you something different: Cloud watching or cloud spotting as its also called by UK based Pretor-Pinney who has founded the Cloud Appreciation Society. The society now has about 5000 members from 39 countries. 38 year old Oxford University graduate Pretor-Pinney who calls himself a [...]
