Descent into the Ice: Nova

2004 Rated NR 1hr

More than 200 years of Alpine winter sports have done little to mar (much less tame) France's towering Mont Blanc. But the area's rock slides, avalanches and flash floods are still poorly understood and almost impossible to control. This documentary follows a team of "glacionauts" as they rappel into a honeycomb of untouched glacier caves to find trapped flood water that threatens the populated valleys just below Mont Blanc.
