Bear Grylls travels to the World's most extreme Mountain ranges.
Alaskan Mountain Range Thousands of skiers, snowboarders and mountain climbers visit Alaska each year in search of virgin snow, and hundreds of people end up lost in the wilderness. Bear's challenge is to make it back to the chair lifts equipped with only his skis, a bottle of water, a knife and a flint. During his journey, he travels down extreme mountain slopes, over glaciers, through bear infested forests and navigates a small boat through treacherous ice floes. Bear shows viewers what it takes to survive in one of the coldest environments on the planet.
European Alps Every year, 120 million people ski and climb the 80,000 square miles of the Alps, Europe's greatest mountain range. Unfortunately, every year hundreds of people die enjoying this beautiful wilderness because they're unable to survive the potentially fatal conditions at heights sometimes reaching 15,000 feet. Armed with only a knife, a water bottle, a cup and a flint, Bear parachutes into the Alps to demonstrate vital survival skills. From a radical new technique to save lives in crevasse zones, building a snow shelter to survive alpine storms, and showing viewers how to escape from a fall into a frozen lake, Bear puts his own skills to the test in this ultimate survival challenge.
