season 1 eposode 2

Bear's travels to Europe's greatest mountain range-The Alps- a place where hundreds of people die each year to show us how to survive in potentially fatal conditions. The Alps are made up of 80,000 square miles of mountains, some more than 15 thousand feet high. Every year 120 million people visit to ski and climb, drawn by the awesome natural beauty-but this stunning wilderness comes at a cost and every year thousands become stranded or lost. Armed with just a knife, water bottle, cup and a flint to make fire, Bear Grylls parachutes into this mountain range to show us how to survive. From a radical new technique which could help save lives in Crevasse zones, to building a snow shelter to survive alpine storms, to showing us how to escape from a fall into a frozen lake, Bear Grylls puts his own very special skills to the test. This is the ultimate survival challenge
