Watch: Leo Taillefer Triggers Multiple Slides at Val d’Isere

Ski edits are deceiving.

While the finished product from skiers like Leo Taillefer will always inspire shock and awe in viewers, what is rarely shown is just how much hard work–and risk–goes into each video.

Amidst World Cup Fever, Here’s Our Favorite Soccer Moment

What do you get when you put a soccer net at the base of a jump and give a ball to a group of Norwegian freeskiers? The most epic combination of skiing and soccer we've seen. While the soccer we’re used to watching is played on a flat pitch, we prefer this take on the sport. Filmed in Geilo, Norway, a group of seven skiers had a classic 3-v-3 tournament...except there was only one goalie. And no referee. And it was played on snow.
