You Can Now Sleep At 2743 Meters (9000 Ft) Above The Sea Level

You Can Now Sleep At 2743 Meters (9000 Ft) Above The Sea LevelYou can spend the night at 2743 meters above sea level, but it’s not for the faint of heart – this accommodation will be on a suspended cable car!

It’ probably not the best place to sleep if you sleep walk, as it’s located at the highest point of the Courchevel ski resort in the Rhône-Alpes region of the French alps. It may look like a simple ski lift at first sight, but it’s actually a fully furnished room that accommodates 4 people. Guests can enjoy a magnificent panorama when dining above the alps while the cabin is suspended. Unfortunately, there is no bathroom, so they have to use the one at the cable car station.

The next morning, you can hit the slopes from the early morning in 3 Vallées – one of the most favored ski resorts in the world.

For such an exceptional hotel, there are some special rules: you have to respect the neighbors (as chamois are easy to wake up), ”do not call asking for more ice,“ and keep in mind that “lines are for travel, not for washing”.

You can win a night in this hotel through Airbnb. All you have to do is convince the host that you will be the best guest they could have.

These Artists Made A Roaring Campfire Out Of Freshly Fallen Snow

Here's Schaffer roasting a faux (or snow) marshmallow over the fire. - These Artists Made A Roaring Campfire Out Of Freshly Fallen SnowBrendan Schaffer of Schaffer Art Studios uses the natural environment to make cool, unique art. It can be sand, rocks, grass, or whatever in nature inspires him. During the winter months, when snow is in abundance, Schaffer feels compelled to create amazing snow sculptures.

A recent sculpture they crafted may look like it would warm you up, but looks can be deceiving. For this project, Schaffer Art Studios decided to design and build an amazing snow sculpture of a campfire.

They saw an opportunity to make something amazing with all the fresh snow.

Watch This Guy Doing Winter Way Better Than You Ever Could.

Watch This Guy Doing Winter Way Better Than You Ever Could.Andrew Muse was determined. He flung himself to extreme heights to get a good shot of the view with his GoPro. Check it out!


As it turns out, a lot of people are abandoning ski resorts for flat lands covered in snow. All they need to do is pull out their kites and using the wind to get riding. Pretty much any open space with snow will do as long as there aren't power lines or dangerous obstructions in the way. Since cold air is more dense, it provides more power than summer air, so you don't need as much wind to get going.

People are already pushing the boundaries with this, as some more adventurous people use it as a way to travel, and the extreme sports crowd push the limits of what's possible. Some have been able to reach upwards of 63 mph. The record for the longest snowkiting expedition was 1,938.67 miles long by Adrian Hayes, Devon McDiarmid and Derek Crowe.

Spectacular Ice Formations Atop a Windswept Mountain in Slovenia

After a long period of pummeling wind, snow, and ice, weather photographer Marko Korosec sensed an opportunity to climb Mount Javornik, part of a mountain range in eastern Slovenia and the location of a popular ski center. What he discovered can only be described as otherworldly. Trees and lookout towers fully encased in hard layers of rime ice, formed by high winds and freezing fog. Korosec says some of the ice spikes growing off the tower reached well over 3-feet (100cm) long. To see more of his weather photography and additional images from this shoot, head over to his 500px page. All photos courtesy the photographer.
