This skier persevered through the lack of snow in his area by taken to the slopes that are covered in leaves.

Anthony Robert, 25, is a ski instructor from Gérardmer, France, but during the autumnal months, he is limited to where he can ski.

Undeterred, Anthony took to the forests in October in search of a prime, leafy hill to test his skills.

The result was a perplexing sight of a man wearing skis, flying past trees with not a snowflake in sight, but a sea of orange, yellow and brown leaves.

Anthony darts from trunk to trunk, always gaining speed, and hit small bumps to gain a little air while racing to some flat ground.

Anthony said: “It’s different because you can’t really turn, so you have to be very careful with the trees and always have a backup plan in case something goes wrong while you are riding.

“Crashing on the leaves can be very, very painful, so you need to be really focus on and always at 100% during the runs and that’s pretty hard actually.

“I really hope that people will understand how cool this type of skiing can be!

“It destroys the ski, but for less than 80€ you can buy an old pair of skis and just go have fun like me in the forest so it’s a pretty good way to wait for winter.”
