Video: Snowboarder lights up the slopes at night


A stunning video of a snowboarder riding the slopes by night, wearing an LED suit has been released.

The short film directed by fashion photographer and filmaker Jason Sutton stars snowboarding pro William Hughes, who lights up the French hills of Tignes in his light-covered outfit.

Hughes looks like a phantom in the LED-envelope suit designed by John Spatcher as swoops through the night, his suit casting a ghostly glow over the snow and trees.
