The other skiers will swoon and be jealous as you swoosh down the slopes in the Beardski, a fleece and neoprene ski mask offered with a variety of attached, foot long beards. (Thanks Ben!)

Trailer for the eighth ski movie of Field Productions. Shot in three countries – Norway, Sweden and Japan – featuring some of the best freeskiers as well as an equally talented film crew.

Polar Bear Skiing

Polar Bear Skiing

That title is misleading. If you’re looking for a polar bear on skis in this video, you’ll be disappointed. You’ll also miss the white-on-white big bear that nearly makes this skier crap his pants.

Jetpack Skiing

Jetpack Skiing

We recently saw a man with propeller-powered ski rig, but stuntman Troy Hartman totally one-ups that guy with his jet-powered ski pack, which manages 47MPH at 50% throttle. We want 100% throttle!

POV Cliff Fall

POV Cliff Fall

We love POV vids as much as the next guy, but usually they’re filled with glorious stunt shots. Here, we get footage of skier who fell off a cliff while wearing a GoPro helmet cam. And yes, he’s OK.

Skiing On Park Ave.

Skiing On Park Ave.

Sure, it’s probably not the safest thing you could do, but this madman had the cojones to ski down New York’s Park Avenue at a rather insane 40mph. Awesome, but don’t get any funny ideas.

Harbin International Ice Festival

Harbin International Ice Festival

The 2011 Ice and Snow Festival is coming soon to China’s Heilongjiang province, and so far it looks pretty darn spectacular. Events will include snow splashing, skating and skiing races. Ok; sign us up.

If you ever wonder what it feels like to fly, this video makes it easier; Mount Superior in Utah is the spectacular setting for an inspired run down the mountain on skis – with parachutes attached.

POV HD Snow Helmet Cam

POV HD Snow Helmet Cam

We’re intrigued by the small bit we’ve seen in this vid for the new V.I.O. point of view HD camera; the shockproof little machine shoots in 1080p at 50 fps, has 4 recording methods and a modular mount.

Aerotype Hi-Tech Jacket
