Cape Town - It's been a chilly week across the country, which may have put some of us into hibernation mode, but seems to have fuelled the flames of adventure in others. 

Following heavy snowfall on Matroosberg Peak near Ceres in the Western Cape over the past weekend, the guys from Darkwing Aerial Cinematography set out to see if they could capture some of the magic. 

Well, capture they did, and proceeded to put together a truly epic video of their expedition. 

"We were fortunate enough to catch the first big snowfall on the Matroosberg mountain. First tracks up the 4x4 trail on the most perfect windless day ended up being a very challenging yet beautiful trip to test out our new S1000 and GH4 rig," the caption read to the footage posted on Vimeo. 

So, sit back, relax and check the video out below...

How awesome is the bit at the end with the patterns in the snow?

We loved it.
