Coined by Pele, football has always been referred to as “The Beautiful Game.” But winter sports just might take the cake instead. Maybe it’s the mountainous landscapes, snow-filled skies, or the prowess of flying over cliffs and icy terrains at lightning speed, which makes winter sport photography something out of a dream. 

With the Beijing Winter Olympics well underway, our photographers on the ground are inundating us with daily updates, highlights and news worthy moments. The job to continuously deliver updated content, keep track of events, name the winners and stay ahead of the news is all but serene, but check out the landscapes and snowy scenes helping us get through.
