Parts of the Middle East received a proper dumping over the weekend for the first time in 112 years. But while most people were distracted by snow on the old walls and village streets, we were watching skiers shred some pow in the Holy City.

Ok, shredding is a bit of an exaggeration. The man in this video is probably not going faster than 7mph, but it’s still fun to watch as his slide is perhaps the first downhill ski descent ever released on video from the Holy City in the Mideast. —Yoon Kim
