The Academy team hope you had a Merry Christmas and happy New Year celebrations! Verbier had two weeks of non-stop snow and excellent powder skiing conditions for Christmas. The Academy team have been full on since the start of November with the Saas-Fee and Verbier courses running back to back so Christmas day was a long awaited break and one of the best freeskiing days the team had ever experienced.
Check out Warren’s Video Blogs from Christmas Day here. It was a great way to spend Christmas Day. He dropped in to the backside of Mont Fort and said the conditions were amazing and that the rocks that you usually find down there were non existent!
Mid afternoon on Christmas he continued on to ski Mont Gele and said the powder on the way down was some of the best he’d ever skied on that face! Check it out here.
On New Years eve Verbier’s Place Centrale was packed full of skiers and holiday makers alike joining in the party for the famous Verbier New Years celebrations. Have a look at the clip below to get a glimpse of what took place from the Farinet Lounge Bar balcony.
