Seasons change as subject moves through scene

I've seen this effect in a couple of places and I was wondering how they produced the effect in the first three or four shots where the season changed with as the skier moved through the scene. Was it simply very careful planning with camera placement and matching the two shots from different seasons together or is there a special post-production trick they used?

The shots are closely lined up.. but no perfect. there is enough change from green to snow that you don't notice the shifts.

After that, it's just some nice masking.

Good planning of the flow of the shots plus tight editing is the main "trick", but often a layered "revealer" might cross the screen composited over the top of everything else, to help cover a discontinuity. The revealer usually is some kind of object that makes sense in the visual context, but it could also be a person's body crossing the view plane.

The best versions of this kind of thing to me are the ones where individual pieces substitute in over time, instead of everything changing at one moment. That's much more work.
