A group of skiers create a huge zig-zag through the snow as they make the climb to the top of a mountain.<br />
<br />
Skiers are usually seen whizzing down the slopes at incredible speeds but one photographer decided to capture the long climb uphill instead.<br />
<br />
Despite the sun, temperatures during one of the climbs fell to around -12 degrees Celsius.<br />
<br />
The skiers use special skins on the bottoms of their skis to help them climb through the snow which they then remove to ski back down.<br />
