There's something serene about snow. Maybe it's in the way it muffles the sounds of the forest or the subtle "drip, drip" of the icicles. However, let's not forget the power snow can unleash at any moment. Alfons Garcia is a 28-year-old snowboarder shredding some serious powder in the Pyrenees mountain range. One swift crack in the snow triggers a massive avalanche and you could say adrenaline kicks in.
