The X-Project – level 3

15-03-2021 07:00

Different sports have combined for the X-Project, a daredevil hybrid event in the breathtaking snowy landscape of the Engadin Mountains in Switzerland.

The X-Project is an old dream has been planned in the making for years. At the heart of it, it´s windsurfing in powder snow alongside speed riding, snowboarding, and snowkiting.

Athletes were taken on the top of the mountain in a helicopter, and they had to use their own particular skills to reach the bottom. The project brought together the world´s best athletes, including a professional windsurfer and world champion, Balz Muller. Muller said that he always chased the rush of adrenaline, the speed, and fear of trying something new.

The X-Project film was shot in the dreamy mountains, creating amazing and never-before-seen images that showed fascinating angles and maneuvers, and they opened up new dimensions in winter sports.

Difficult words: daredevil (a person who enjoys doing dangerous things), adrenaline (a chemical substance produced by the body when a person is frightened, angry, or excited), maneuver (a skillful movement).
