Winter sports gadgets tested in the Alps

Crave has journeyed to the Alps to bring you reviews and news on the latest winter sports gadgets. The series will begin tomorrow -- here's what to expect...

As Europe's first decent snowfalls beckon skiers and snowboarders onto the slopes, we're investigating whether your gadgets can survive the altitude and the temperature. Over the next few days, Crave will be taking a look at how our best-loved consumer tech copes in the Swiss Alps.

We'll be burying the new MacBook in the snow, testing out the latest in iPod-equipped snowboarding jackets, and taking a look at a new material that could spell the end for traditional kneepads -- a fabric that hardens on impact to protect you.

Expect video reviews of the hottest (well, coldest) electronic gadgets that snowboarders could be taking with them this season, and top tips on how to shoot video in the snow yourself. Check back tomorrow for the first installment. -CS
