I’m a big fan of going down ski slopes at unreasonable speeds, but not such a big fan of the slog to get back to the top again. So any way of reaching the summit in double quick time sounds good to me – especially if it involves the unfeasible idea of throwing a four-wheel drive, 600hp R35 GT-R up a freshly-bashed run.

Up? Yes. Uphill, like semi-vertically. Team IceRiders and Redhouse Media decided to find out if it would work, and added in some snowmobiles for an almost James-Bond-in-reverse thrash up the side of a mountain at Kåbdalis in northern Sweden. Ski lifts will seem so last year from now on…

What a great production by Clash! I wonder if they have private instructors for that LOL. It would be awesome to be able to race back up the hill, instead of getting on a boring ski lift. Yes, the view is spectacular, but I don’t need to see it everytime I want another run down the slopes. This would definitely increase the sport’s popularity with the younger generation!

Wow, never heard of Redhouse media before, but this is a great production and another account to follow on vimeo. I was already a fan of Clash Production, but this segment is just beautiful. The clips and editing along with the song gets your blood pumping. 

 

And of course, great use of a GTR.

Where can I get a copy of the sound/song from this video... the tune of that GTR fits in so good with the music... I cant stop listening to it!

You know I like the snow Mr Moore, I think we should talk to Mr Chicherit/Minbackflip that I saw in Tignes and see if we can't do something next winter? I got my Range Rover stuck on the 'summer road' which is a piste, I need to right that wrong...

Great idea, great video!  Would have been even better if they used a red (or any other color) car so you could see it better...

This is filmed at my old snowboard stomping grounds, only 45 minutes drive (now 1h45min from where I live, Luleå - Sweden) and you can spot that GTR around town from time to time. The ski lift owners are usally up to alow lots of fun stuff in their slopes, like Snowmobile races in the ski/snowboard park :)

Awesome video, but can't hear the motor over that music, the motor would be the music!

Awesome, thats my kinda snow cat service.... but passing up ski bunnies is indefensible. That was the best thing about taking the Coupe Quattro through A basin pass. Serious ski women there.

That would be amazing but given the effort to rework it into a 2L N/A (which I don't recall Nissan having a good one) or a 1.6T makes running a 1.6T Juke a much more sensible option.

 

Cramming a R35 into the small engine restrictions of the FIA rules would probably ruin the car as a whole and leave it uncompetitive.
