7 Films For Snow Lovers

7 Films For Snow Lovers

Since the beginning of pandemic, many things have changed including one of the most enjoyable activities for most people- traveling. Each one of us has been affected and all those travel experiences were equal to zero or in some cases limited. Snowy passions felt the chaos of their forbidden adventures and became forced to stay home, even for winter holidays, when the ski season used to open. Ski & snowboards sitting in the garages waiting for the next normal mountain experience.

Fans of snow sports engaged in their passion for the mountains in other ways, using TV as their vice, watching shows to remind them of the best snowy journeys. Amazon Prime, Netflix, Disney, amongst other have a wide range of great winter shows, documentaries, and films to get easily through this situation. You can stream many channels on TV using these apps like Amazon Firestick, Roku, Apple TV. It is a simple and cost-effective way, simply by connecting them to your house WIFI and plugging them in to the the TV via the HDMI port. And voila, after creating an account and subscription, you have access to thousands of movies, shows, and other content.

Unfortunately, some of the channels can appear as geo-locked (channels are blocked based on your IP address), which can only be accessed in specific countries. That’s where a Firestick VPN (if using Amazon firestick) comes as a solver, encrypting all of your internet connection and allowing you to change your IP address, therefore giving you the ability to watch any content available on Amazon Prime no matter where you’re located in the world.

With that being said, check out these 7 best prime shows on Amazon and remind yourself of the wonderful ski slopes.
