Winter is coming. The Winter Olympics, that is.

The BBC is building anticipation for Sochi with an official Team Great Britain trailer that looks like it’s part Lord of the Rings, part Game of Thrones, and totally epic.

Not only does this clip feature athletes scaling a dangerous-looking expanse of snowy mountains, it’s also accompanied by chillingly poetic copy (I am the dreadful menace, the one whose will is done / The haunting chill upon your neck / I am the conundrum…) menacingly narrated by Game of Thrones actor Charles Dance (that’s Tywin Lannister to you, Westeros fans).
