Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you STOKED!!!

For this edition of Weekend Warrior, we're looking at some of our favorite activities, skiing, ice climbing and rock climbing, but in some interesting locales and venues - some you might not normally think of at first...

This first clip takes a look at the region of Kashmir, an area usually thought of as home to some major Himalayan peaks, like Nanga Parbat, Gasherbrum, and K2. Sure there is tons of snow there, so I guess it was only a matter of time before there was skiing, and if you are going to have skiing, you might as well have Heliskiing, right?

This second video was definitely a surprise for me. When I think of ice climbing, I think of places like Ouray, the Canadian Rockies, Scotland, the Alps, and dozens of other places. But I never would have thought about Iran...

Sure there is lots of climbing in Austria and Switzerland, but you're probably thinking of the Alps or the Dolomites, right? Well this clip starts off in that direction, but makes a sharp turn a few minutes in and features some unusual climbing venues.

Have a great weekend!
