As you can see from this great Telemark extreme skiing video by J.T. Robinson it has started to snow over in Utah.
Great filming, great sound, great snow, we are sooooo jealous.

After a few seasons with very little snow this skiing season in Europe is starting with new records of snow heights.
The last days of massive snow falls throughout Europe – it was even snowing on some Spanish islands normally considered by many as a warm winter refuge – have brought amounts of snow to Austrian, German, Swiss and French resorts some of them have not seen for the whole season the last years and never been seen in November before.
While the US and Canada the last years where lucky with record snow heights, in Europe many resorts experienced “droughts” to the extend that in Switzerland the last two winters fire warnings had to be issues to prevent forest fires.
Lets hope this year will be different and it looks like it might be.
And people are desperate to go…
We are getting ready for the new skiing season, so to warm up from home the best Extreme Skiing Videos we found on YouTube. There is some awesome action, incredible jumps, steep runs and lots of snow…
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.
We 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…
