Ski Sunday, presented by Graham Bell and Ed Leigh, is back with all the thrills and spills from the slopes.

The 2011 series will feature the best ski racing action from the World Cup and World Championships in Germany.

It will also feature the best snowboarders and there will also be an exclusive interview with Olympic champion, Shaun White.

Live ski races will be shown on the red button and the website and Graham and Ed will sample some new winter sports.

Graham attempts the little known sport of ski joring, which involves the skier being pulled around a race track by a motorbike.

While the duo will be putting their mountain skills to the test as they have a go at the Crashed Ice in Munich and the World Freeride course in St Moritz.

In Sunday's programme, Graham and Ed present coverage of the men's giant slalom from Adelboden in Switzerland.

Austrian Benjamin Raich has won three of the last four giant slaloms at the Kuonisbaergli course, including most recently in 2009. He was denied the chance to add a fourth win when last year's event was cancelled due to fog.

There will also be some spectacular action featuring 16 of the world's best snowboarders going head-to-head at the Oakley Air & Style Big Air snowboard event in Beijing.

The men's giant slalom and run two of the slalom will be shown live on the red button and website, starting at 0930 GMT on Saturday and Sunday.

And you can keep in touch with the presenters throughout the series on Twitter , via @snowEdLeigh and @skigrahambell.
