A group of skiers create a huge zig-zag through the snow as they make the climb to the top of a mountain.
Skiers are usually seen whizzing down the slopes at incredible speeds but one photographer decided to capture the long climb uphill instead.
Despite the sun, temperatures during one of the climbs fell to around -12 degrees Celsius.
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.
