In an interesting clash of technology and snowboarding, Austrian snowboard icon Anna Gasser and renowned Austrian folk singer Andreas Gabalier were featured in a video that has us grinning. Among the powdery snow of Obertauern, a picturesque winter resort in Austria, these two were pictured using two massive drones, each spanning an impressive 2.5 meters. These drones served as unconventional yet effective towing vehicles, effortlessly gliding the duo through the scenic trails of Obertauern.
