From ziplining across Dubai Marina to cave diving in Mexico, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid, Crown Prince of Dubai, is known for his love of adventure.

And now he's trying his hand at winter sports in Aspen, Colorado.

Sheikh Hamdan has shared videos and photos of his trip on Instagram, showing that he's been trying his hand at skiing and snowboarding, while also having a turn on snowmobiles and even an 'alpine coaster'.

The royal uses the hashtag #Snowmass in his posts, suggesting he's been staying at, or at least visiting, the resort complex of Snowmass in Pitkin County.

This video (click to play) shows him having morning coffee in the snow, trying a range of winter sports, and riding on an 'alpine coaster' with his frequent travel companion Sheikh Saeed bin Maktoum bin Juma:
