Beautiful Video Shows Every Season Of A Year On One Running Route

Video: When you run over 240km on the same route over the course of a year and take a total of 98,366 photos of that route while braving the snow, the rain, the cold, the heat and all the crazy things the elements can thrown at you, you get a pretty fantastic hyperlapse video that blends all the different seasons together. It’s really cool to see the environment and the city suddenly morph and change all around a single 8km loop in Montana.

If you’ve been to the snow in the last couple of years, you’ll have had some trouble getting online on your smartphone.

Snowboarding An Abandoned Winter Resort Looks Like So Much Fun

Video: Empty ski resorts? Yeah, that would be fun to shred. Ski resorts that have been abandoned for four years though? So. Much. More. Fun. Here are a bunch of snowboarders — Red Gerard, Marko Grilc, and Tim-Kevin Ravnjak — having their go in a world left behind for snow to stack up on.


The First Person View Of Climbing A Snowy 6900 Metre Tall Mountain Is A Little Bit Terrifying

Video: If there is a mountain, people will climb it. Or at least, people that are much, much bolder than I am. Here is some incredible point of view footage from David Lama and Conrad Anker as they become the first expedition to reach the headwall of Lunag Ri, a 6907m tall mountain on the border of Nepal and Tibet.


Watch A Snowball Miraculously Survive A Bath In Molten Steel

So just how heat-resistant are the highly-engineered materials developed for use in things like jet engines, nuclear reactors and combustion turbines? Tough enough to change the meaning of the old saying, “a snowball’s chance in hell.” Apparently, its odds are quite good of surviving — when dressed appropriately.
