Last season, as we all remember far too well, was one of the worst winters in memory for a lot of Europe. At first our hopes were built up in the run up to Christmas with the regions blanketed in feet of fresh - then, our hopes were dashed like a burning roast dinner in the oven.

However, it seems young Austrian filmer Michael Haunschmidt had a wizards sleeve of powder locations hidden up his jacket. This is his second film after last seasons 'Always Like This' and he's called in the troops to showboat the Baustrian way of getting it done.
