Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare...

A unique insight into the spectacular phenomenon known as White Death.

Taken from the Equinox documentary series, this features the enemy of the lovers of skiing, the avalanche. An in-depth look at what causes them, what effect they have and how to predict them is illustrated by spectacular footage of avalanches, and goes some way to explode some of the common myths attached to them. Alongside scientific explanation and analysis, the rescuers of avalanche victims are also looked at, along with the deliberate use of this force of nature as a form of warfare.
