Marco Malcangi, 22, said he was in the Italian alps to do some powder skiing.
But when he went to leave his home he found five feet of snow blocking his way.
In a video he is seen buried up to his shoulders and wading through the snow (amazing five feet!).
Parts of central and northern Europe have been gripped by a cold weather front.
Paris’ Eiffel Tower was frozen on Thursday.
🇬🇧 When negative temperatures return, my floors got partially covered with ice! 🥶 To get rid of it, we need to use a blowtorch because ice-control salt is too corrosive for the metal.#EiffelTower pic.twitter.com/nkdgLVaUHf— La tour Eiffel (@LaTourEiffel) February 9, 2021
Britain saw its lowest temperature in 26 years and the Thames River in Teddington, South West London, froze over for the first time in over 60 years.

Somebody didn’t tell that.. ”Doctored Data, Not U.S. Temperatures, Set a Record This Year by James Taylor” .. and.. ”EconLog. 1.6%, Not 97%, Agree that Humans are the Main Cause of Global Warming. By David Henderson”.. and.. ”The UK Telegraph in their ClimateGate Series exposed the U of Exeter Climate Scientists, who were tasked with supplying the UN’s IPCC with temperature data.. for having deliberately placed thermometers on rooftops next to hot air con outlets, on black tarmac car parks, in city centers and supplied many readings from Russian locations with NO thermometers”. Welcome to the forecast mini ice age.
Yeah in the Alps. You see drifts like that in MN in Feb. I drove through 4′ drifts in a 4×4. It’s kind of fun. There’s plenty of fun things to do in the snow.
Ok, tonight the wind changed. Went cold —north to south, prior to that it was 35mp southwest to northwest.
Snowing hard steady. Wonder how much tonight? Weather is unpredictable out here. I have had storms drop on one half of my ranch, and look out the opposite window, and it’s nothing. Seen it twice like that. Its not fluffy snow yet, almost.
