4 days in Verbier - the reality behind the dream life with fairytale views
SOME KIDS NEVER GROW UP
Welcome to Verbier, Val de Bagnes and La Tzoumaz! This is my first ever, very relaxed and super happy vlog from 4 (tot 6) very eventful days in the alp paradise Verbier in the beginning of February 2020. I might have misspelled some words and names, I might have forgotten to add logos, there might have been a background song on top of a mountain that needed to be removed after publishing, I might have not cared about some transitions and effects, I might have used raw clips with no time or prio on retakes. But mind that what it loses in quality is gained in experiences hehe, and yes my mobile camera sucks and the audio experience is terrible, but I really hope you enjoy watching it and feel welcome into my every day life with a lil twist! :)
(The whole thing was supposed to be English but the result is rather very Swenglish, sorry about that. If there’s many people watching it I might upload one with subtitles as well).
So - we were a group of 5. There was Sassa who was our duck mom and organizer (she’s also a pro jazz singer!). Then there’s Petter who works for Tiger of Sweden and was nominated for Sweden’s best dressed man last year, Bingo who is a pro photographer and super influencer, Joel who is the founder and editor in chief for Icon Magazine (I called him Per the whole trip because his name is @lifeofpolarnper on instagram and since I tagged him in a lot of posts I just couldn’t let that name go haha. Also he looked like a Per. And his middle name actually is Per so it’s ok hehe). And then there was me, a pro adventurer, "fjäll"-leader (guide), designer, photographer and micro influencer living a combo lifestyle to the fullest!
We were out together with a group of British journalists and we did almost everything together with them. Then there was super sweet Elise who is PR manager for Verbier and our organizer.
Verbier is the Mecca of excellent freeriding. On this press trip, lovers of off-piste skiing met in Verbier to share and live their passion. The playground is unlimited: Mont-Fort, Mont Gelé, Bec des Rosses: a few highlights to discover during a stay in the resort. The Xtreme Verbier, final of the Freeride World Tour, hosts the best freeriders of the planet. But freeriding is not only riding, it’s also knowledge: learning your limits, the environment, the risks and how to use the correct tools. And most of all, Verbier has a lot more to offer than free riding… it’s a huge playground for mountain lovers and livsnjutare (”life enjoyers”) living an active or sporty lifestyle.
