God bless GoPro for putting us in the driving seat of some of the world’s most extreme sports, without having to leave the comfort of our sofa.

They also launched this competition, the Line of the Winter contest, where people record themselves on a run, filming it on their GoPro and submitting the entry.

French skier Leo Taillefer bagged the cool $20,000 grand prize for this epic run at Val d’ Isere in Italy.

Taillefer beat more than 800 entries to win the big prize, with this intense descent, weaving through some incredibly narrow canyons.

At one point a big friendly yeti jumps out at him. Which is nice.

Remember, always watch out for those yetis.
