Glorious Footage Of Animals In The Bitter Cold

Video: Muskoxen look like mythical creatures, stuff you’d see in a museum or on a TV show. That’s because they’re animals from a prehistoric age. Rolf Steinmann made this short film In Between in order to show the animals’ lives in the bitter cold of the Arctic, and to document their current plight. The footage of these animals huddled together is totally gorgeous.


Watch Winter Turn Into Spring In These Beautiful Photos

Video: Fall is probably the most picturesque season but there’s always something beautiful about seeing the stillness of winter give way to the colour of spring. Here’s a collection of photographs from photographer Jim Brandenburg that documents the transformation from winter to spring. According to National Geographic, Brandenburg took a photo everyday in Minnesota from the 2014 vernal equinox to the day before summer solstice.


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.


Embrace Blizzards With A Pair Of Wearable Sleds Strapped To Your Legs

Wrangling a snowboard or a set of skis along to your skiing holiday can be a hassle, but a pair of sleds that strap to your legs? Suddenly things are a lot easier.


Skier Somehow Survives A Terrifying 300 Metre Tumble Down A Mountain

Video: I don’t know how this is possible (though I am very thankful it is), but immediately after skiier Angel Collinson tumbled 300m down the side of an Alaskan mountain, she sat up and told everyone that she was going to walk back up the mountain to get her stuff. I mean, how badarse is that? After being put in the dangerous whirlwind free fall for what seemed like forever (the drop kept going and going and going), she just brushed it off like it was nothing. Incredible.


One Day Droneboarding Could Be An Exciting Sport, But Not Today

Video: It’s entirely plausible that one day extreme athletes will be blasting across a snow-covered field on a snowboard, powered not by the pull of gravity, but by a flying drone pulling them along. However, as this video of the world’s first droneboarder reveals, that day is still a long ways off.


Time Lapse Shows How Much Snow Fell During The US Blizzard

Video: Winter Storm Jonas hit the US east coast over last weekend, and if you care about the weather in America at all, you’d know that there was a ridiculous amount of snow that got dropped onto cities. Here’s time lapse footage of the blizzard in Purcellville, Virginia.


America's Colossal Snowstorm Shattered Even More Records Than Expected

Blizzards. Floods. Ice storms. Thundersnow. Hurricane-level winds. Plagues of locusts. OK, maybe not that last one. But all the rest of these hit the US hard last weekend, breaking records just as predicted — and in some cases even more than predicted.


The Migration Of Thousands Of Reindeers In The Winter Is Majestic

Video: Here’s absolutely gorgeous footage of a huge herd of reindeer making their way across Norway during winter from photographer Jan Helmer Olsen. Seeing all those reindeer walk through the snow in search for warmth is especially beautiful because of the aerial drone view. Their movement is almost like a ballet from up there.
