Driving a Tesla Cybertruck with Snow Tracks

Driving a Tesla Cybertruck with Snow Tracks

Diesel Brothers Heavy D and Diesel Dave know a thing or two about modding vehicles. For this build, they outfitted a Tesla Cybertruck with an upgraded suspension and giant snow tracks. This clip teases us with footage of their CyberTrax electric pickup dashing through the snow. They plan on releasing a full-length video on YouTube soon.

Epic Snowboarding POV

Epic Snowboarding POV

Most of the snowboarding videos we’ve seen have been edited to show the best action. Olympic and X Games snowboarding medalist Sage Kotsenburg shared nine minutes of unedited first-person GoPro footage from his rides through the fresh powder at Eagle Pass, BC. If you’ve never taken a backcountry route, it’s the closest you’ll get to being there.

Riding a Bike Down a Ski Slope

Riding a Bike Down a Ski Slope

Athlete Fabio Wibmer headed to the slopes of Kitzbühel, Austria, to take in some winter sports. But his high-speed ride down the challenging course known as The Streif was on two wheels instead of skis. Beyond his brass balls and cycling skills, his only advantage was the studded tires on his bike and a SICK! outfit from Nineyard.

Skiing Through School

Skiing Through School

We learned the hard way that riding a skateboard through school was a no-no. So we can only imagine the detention we would have gotten if we rode skis through the hallways like freestyle skier Matěj Švancer did after graduation. Though, we’re guessing Red Bull got permission to lay snow down in the hallways.

Ski Avalanche Close Call POV

Ski Avalanche Close Call POV

Skiing can be incredibly fun – but it can also be quite dangerous. Big mountain skier Owen Leeper shows how scary things can get with this first-person footage of an avalanche that started beneath his skis as he headed down a rocky chute. Fortunately, he survived with only minor injuries. Here it is from another angle.

Swiss Alps Toboggan Ride

Swiss Alps Toboggan Ride

Didn’t make it to the mountains for winter vacation? Then live vicariously through this first-person toboggan ride captured in the Swiss Alps. The 10 km (6.2-mile) downhill trail goes from soothing, to thrilling, to awe-inspiring and includes a few especially sketchy spots zooming close to the edge near the trees.

Putting Tracked Wheels on a Car

Putting Tracked Wheels on a Car

We’ve had the pleasure of driving a customized Nissan Altima with snow tracks. This build from Garage 54 is the low-budget equivalent of that, using a janky old Lada and fitting it with dual rear tires wrapped in metal tracks. It’s definitely not the most agile vehicle in the snow, but it is able to drive on some sloppy powder.

Landing a Jumbo Jet in Antarctica

Landing a Jumbo Jet in Antarctica

We’ve seen the airport at Antarctica’s Troll Research Station. Now Extreme Aviation Iceland gives us a first-person view from the cockpit as an Icelandair Boeing 767 comes in for a landing and faces the frigid conditions at one of the world’s Southernmost air strips. Stick around to the end to see them take back off.

Uncharted: A Snowbike Film

After gulping down a can of sponsor Monster Energy’s high-powered drink, snowbiker and X Games athlete Cody Matechuk headed into the snow-capped mountains of British Colombia for a thrilling ride on his motorized snowbike. Expect lots of daring jumps off of rocky cliffs into a thick cushion of fresh powder.

Bullet Trains in the Snow

Bullet Trains in the Snow

You’d think that a bullet train whooshing by you at 200 mph might be jarring, but this video of Japan’s Shinkansen high-speed railway zooming by in the snow is oddly soothing. YouTube channel It’s railway! shared this compilation of footage captured on snowy days at the empty Kurikoma-Kōgen Station.

Otyken: Storm

Otyken: Storm

Siberian musical group Otyken performed their track Storm in the icy Krasnoyarsk Territory, home to the Chulyms indigenous people and the birthplace of members of the band. The song mixes traditional and modern sounds – including some wicked throat singing – and is about challenges people face when traveling to the East.

Maker Peter Sripol adds to his collection of homebrew vehicles with the creation of a custom bicycle that can glide across snow, and is pushed along by a propeller.

Ski Jump without Snow

Ski Jump without Snow

Zooming down a ski jump under normal conditions requires a certain amount of courage, but doing it when there’s no snow on it at all looks downright terrifying. That’s precisely what skier Christian Høgfeldt did a few years back, as he placed his skis into the tracks of a bare ski jump, headed downhill, and landed safely at the bottom.
