Graham Bell and Ed Leigh present the skiing and wintersports magazine show which has had a revamp in its thirtieth year. The show has been extended to an hour and includes travel and entertainment features as well as the best skiing from the World Cup.
In addition to the skiing featured in the programme, there will also be comprehensive red button (interactive) highlights coverage from the resorts of the Alpine World Cup series.
And it will not just be Ed and Graham who will be taking to the slopes.
Each week former Olympic skier Graham will take a celebrity for an intensive one-day training course to see how they can improve their skiing. Joining him on the slopes of the Italian resort of Courmayeur are Heston Blumenthal, Fiona Bruce, Ben Fogle, Tara Palmer Tompkinson, Marcus Brigstocke, Frank Gardener, Clare Balding and Colin Jackson.
In 'Graham's Great Adventure', Graham goes on a summer trek across the Alps and Dolomites, going in search of wildlife and notable local buildings.
And Ed gets in on the act with a range of exotic snowboarding trips. He starts off on the Trans-Siberian Express, before journeying to the Atlas mountains, Himalayas, Japan and Mount Kosciusko, the highest point on the Australian mainland.
