When German filmmaker Philipp Klien had to cancel a skiing trip with his family due to the coronavirus pandemic, he made a home video of his ‘trip’ and it is a hit on the internet.

“Just before the current health situation locked us in, I was about to go free riding with my family. It was supposed to be the big adventure of the year, the one I had been eagerly awaiting for a year.

“Therefore, the lockdown had me thinking about skiing the whole time, so I started to think about how I could ski without leaving my living room,” Klien wrote while posting the video on YouTube.

Spain has reported 1.53 lakh confirmed cases of COVID-19 and there have been 15,000 deaths so far.
