Slide Down The Alps In This Awesome Ride… OMG At The View.

The mountains in Switzerland are known for their incredible natural beauty, but one of them features an added dose of awesome that you're not going to believe. It's called the Mountain Coaster, and it's basically a massive slide that's cut into the side of the landscape. And with this video, we get to go along for the ride.

The coaster offers tremendous views of the surrounding forests and hills, and it gets up to some seriously high speeds. If you're curious about this epic ride but can't make to the Swiss Alps any time soon, check out the video below -- it really does seem like the ride of a lifetime.

She Figure Skated On Top Of A Mountain… At 1:06 You Can Literally FEEL The Awe.

She Figure Skated On Top Of A Mountain… At 1:06 You Can Literally FEEL The Awe.

For legendary French skier Candide Thovex, "breaking the Internet" isn't really a big deal. After all, the epic and extreme athlete has uploaded tons of videos of his antics, many of them going viral.

That being said, this might be his best yet.

The video below is shot from Thovex's perspective, and shows him jumping, spinning, and doing otherwise mind-blowing things on a pair of skis. Watching this video is a thrill in-and-of-itself -- and we can't imagine the rush Thovex must have gotten when he did it.

He Walks 20 Miles A Day To Create The Strangest Art You’ll Ever See.

He Walks 20 Miles A Day To Create The Strangest Art You’ll Ever See.

Simon Beck creates art, but it's unlike any art we've seen before. Wearing snowshoes, Beck makes ornate snow murals that look absolutely stunning once viewed from above.

His process is elaborate and incredibly detailed, and requires hours of painstaking work in the snow. In fact, Beck estimates that he makes about 5,000 steps per hour, for a total of 40,000 steps for his biggest projects.

Once he's finished, the snow murals are massive works of art that use the snow as a canvas -- in fact, Beck might be the only person in the world creating something like this. See a stunning video of his work-in-progress below.

A Camouflaged Snow Leopard Gave These Skiers The FRIGHT Of Their Lives.

A Camouflaged Snow Leopard Gave These Skiers The FRIGHT Of Their Lives.

A group of skiers had quite the scare as they skied down a mountain in Gulmarg, in the northern state of Jammy and Kashmir. Owen Lansbury from Australia filmed the surprising and tense encounter with a snow leopard.

American tour guide, Dave Marchi almost ran over the animal who was camouflaged by the snow. In the video, you can hear a woman telling Lansbury to stop skiing. The peaceful stand-off didn’t last long. “I stopped just as it huddled in the snow, where it stayed for about a minute checking us out,” says the 42-year-old.

Snow leopards live in the mountains in Central Asia, found in altitudes from 9,000 to 16,000 feet. The large cat is an endangered species due to poaching, loss of habitat, and climate change. It is estimated there are only about 6,000 snow leopards left in the world. The king of the mountain left the group alone but not before letting out a “solid roar.”

He Left His Camera Pointed At The Sky. 8 Hours Later… I’m In Awe.

He Left His Camera Pointed At The Sky. 8 Hours Later… I’m In Awe.

There are some parts of the world that are so magical and surreal, it feels they came from a storybook page. Inari in Lapland, Finland is that rare and breathtaking location where the sun shines 24 hours a day in the summer and is in complete darkness in the winter months. The dark nights allow for the Aurora Borealis to display a spectacular light show.

The northern lights are the result of collisions of gaseous particles in the earth’s atmosphere with the charged particles from the sun. The waves of light vary in color from green, purple, and reds. The Aurora Borealis is visible in Lapland about 200 nights a year, usually from late August to April.

This time-lapse video was shot in Inari, a small village located only 300 kilometers form the Arctic Circle. Unlike the rest of Lapland, Inari boasts getting to see this wonder practically every night.

These Frozen Waves Look Like Piles Of Broken Glass, And I Can’t Stop Watching.

These Frozen Waves Look Like Piles Of Broken Glass, And I Can’t Stop Watching.

Nature photographers know the weather can be highly unpredictable and sometimes shutterbugs can witness some truly amazing acts of nature. Dawn M. LaPointe captured sheets of ice pushing into the frozen shoreline in Brighton Beach, Duluth. This caused the frozen lake to break away from the brute force of the ice tide. Ironically, despite the destructive force of the ice, there is something very calming about this video.

The Minnesota resident spent two hours filming in subzero temperatures. The frozen sheets varied in thickness from 0.25 to 3 inches. The jagged-looking glass toppling onto one another had help. "Four hours of 12-15 mph steady winds from the SW led up to the movement of the large sheets of ice. Once the ice separated from shore and could gain momentum with the wind, it slowly moved in the direction of Brighton Beach,” LaPointe wrote on Facebook about the event.

This winter has been relatively mild in Minnesota, making the width of the ice thinner in the Lake Superior shore. Watch this mesmerizing video; you definitely want turn up the volume to hear shards of glass ice crash.

These Skiers Turned The Streets Of Boston Into An Insane Ski Park.

These Skiers Turned The Streets Of Boston Into An Insane Ski Park.

While most Massachusetts residents were digging out from the 68 inches of snow that fell in February, these two dudes were turning the city of Boston into their own personal amusement park. Luckily, they also captured it all on film.

Clayton Villa and Cam Riley hit the snow streets with camera, mounted to both a helicopter and a car. Then, they turned the city into a skiers paradise: Jumping off high ledges onto huge snow piles, skiing down streets, and making the rest of us supremely jealous that we don't have skills like this. Check out their epic winter adventure in the video below.

Watch The Milky Way Get Photobombed By The Northern Lights.

Watch The Milky Way Get Photobombed By The Northern Lights.

When photographer Maciej Winiarczyk headed to Scotland to capture an incredible video of the Milky Way showing up in the night sky, he knew he was about to create something amazing. However, he couldn't have planned for something like this.

During his time-lapse video, something else showed up on the screen: The Aurora Borealis. This was a huge moment for Winiarczyk, as he claims to have been hunting the auroras for the better part of three years. The completely surprising, unplanned arrival of the lights makes one of the coolest time-lapse videos we've seen so far. Check out the footage below.
