As far as castles go, there are few as unique (and susceptible to melting) as that in Finland's Ylläs Snow Village. Among ice wolves, crystal-clear staircases and frigid ramparts, Antti Ollila, Aleksi Patja, Miika Virkki and Eemeli Jussila find what's possibly one of the most surreal jib spots in the world for the third episode of their "Hot Chocolate" web series.

XC Extreme: Spandex, Backflips and One Weird Park Session
You have to be a little crazy to get into XC skiing, but you have to be full-on nuts to session a terrain park in spandex, soft boots and skate skis. A crew of Norwegians at Oslo Vinterpark, Tryvann did just that, stomping front flips and backflips, slicking rails and boosting above the lip on the hill's halfpipe. Norwegians, apparently, love their XC skis.
