Some people will go to extreme lengths to reach fresh powder - whether it's using a helicopter to reach an untouched peak or hiking miles into the wilderness to find fresh lines.

However, these German skiers took it one step further. Introducing Balloon Skiing - yep, that's getting a hot air balloon to drop you on top of a mountain before riding down.

It's part of a new ski film called Heimschnee.

Heimschnee Balloon Skiing Vaude

Fronted by backcountry skiier Stephan Keck, the team rappelled off the side of the hot air balloon, touching down on the peak of a remote mountain top.

It might seem like an extreme way to find untouched powder - but it's way more eco-friendly than using a gas guzzling helicopter.

Who knows? It might catch on...
