We’ve seen a number of “how to” videos in recent weeks, but most of them focused squarely on what gear to use in the outdoors or how to dress properly for the conditions. This one could potentially save your life, as it comes our way courtesy of Xavier De Le Rue, an expedition snowboarder who has gone to the ends of the Earth in pursuit of adventure.

Throughout his travel, Xavier has learned a thing or two about remaining safe however and now he’s passing that wisdom on to us. Here, you’ll learn how to travel safely on a glacier, avoiding potential disaster.
