Watching These People Snowboard Down Giganto Mountains Scares Me Crazy

Winter is coming. Maybe it doesn't seem like it but once the clock ticks a wee bit more, it's going to get cold, it's going to snow and it's going to be SNOWBOARDING SEASON. To get a little taste, watch these guys snowboard down gigantically scary mountains. I will never be this cool.


The clip is actually a trailer for "This is My Winter" which features Xavier De Le Rue, a French Snowboarder, along with Mathieu Crepel, Andreas Fransson and Samuel Anthamatten. They climb mountains and hit near vertical slopes just to risk their life and snowboard and then do it all over again, the dedication is absolutely inspiring.

If you love the mountains, the snow, or the winter, you'll probably want to watch this movie. They went all around Europe armed with helmet cams and helicopter shots—This Is My Winter will be shown online sometime in mid November. [Vimeo via Hypebeast]

Can't wait. I hope this year is as good or better than last year (Colorado). I didn't get to take advantage of the snow like I wanted to last year. Here's hoping work doesn't get in the way this year.

I need to use all my days at Vail this year, which I haven't done in 10 seasons.
