Watch A Rabbit Artfully Hop And Jump Around Inside An Avalanche

Video: I don’t know what compelled this white rabbit to pop out of nowhere and run straight into the avalanche and start hopping away, but I can use my human brain to come up with rabbit reasons. I only see three options: it sees the collapsing snow as a giant mate orgy, it thinks jumping around inside an avalanche is fun like how we see surfing waves, or it’s just a rabbit seeing the world collapse and just jumping for his life. Either way, it’s pretty impressive hopping.


Being Inside An Ice Cave Inside A Glacier Looks Absolutely Stunning

I think heaven on Earth is Antarctica. Or at least, that’s what it looks like to me. It’s so peaceful and serene and beautiful and pure that it looks like an untouched world.

Being Trapped Underneath An Icy Lake Is Terrifyingly Beautiful

Diving underneath ice might be the easiest way to be transported into another world that’s completely unlike ours. You need the correct equipment and you never want to be really trapped, but it looks completely ethereal. The colours, the shapes, the ceiling, it’s all so pristine and so beautiful.


Insane Guy Breaks The World Mountain Bike Speed Record

Video: Blink and you’ll miss him. That’s because mountain bike rider Eric Barone is going faster than anyone has ever gone on a mountain bike on snow. He reached 223.3km/h on a bike with the help of a terrifyingly steep, snowy hill and the wonder of aerodynamic gear. He goes FAST. One wrong move or one misplaced snowball and he’d go flying.


The Subzero Lab Where Scientists Recreate Avalanches In A Box 

Avalanches are powerful forces of nature, but they’re also the result of millions of tiny snowflakes bonded — or not bonded — together just so. Looking at avalanches falling down mountains can only tell you so much. At Montana State University’s “subzero lab”, scientists are studying how avalanches happen by recreating them flake by flake.

My First Time On The Slopes In 16 Years, I Skied The Backcountry 

I haven’t been skiing since the late ’90s. So, for my first time back, a trip out of bounds though the backcountry outside Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in the US was a safe, practical thing to do, right?


Crazy Guy Rode His Snowmobile Off A Cliff And Then Started Flying

A snowmobile weighs nearly 225kg and isn’t meant for flying and yet, that’s what professional crazy person Antti Pendikainen did with his snowmobile. He gunned it down the mountain and then launched it off a cliff and then started soaring, reaching heights in the air typically meant for helicopters and planes.
