Skiing in Switzerland



Switzerland Experience

A minibus dropped me in the morning at Verbier from Geneva Airport. First I checked into one of the designated lodges or so called cottages where other team members had already arrived. Cottages, inns, villas are very popular and preferred by skiing enthusiasts instead of hotels. In fact one could find more of these chalets rather than regular hotels, which are few and far away from the skiing spots.

Next morning after breakfast, we went to a store nearby our hotel and hired the skiing gears. It was difficult for me to find the gears fitting to my size, so I had to try out different boots, gloves, etc. until I settled with the appropriate kit. We were a total of seven members accompanied by our guide and trainer rolled into one. He helped us in finding the stuffs required for skiing. After shopping, we loaded the stuff in the waiting van.

All of us were excited and when our van moved into the narrow snow clad roads, while heading towards the skiing spot from the hotel, we felt the goose bumps but enjoyed the thrill of the ride. By the time we reached the assembly area to get lifted for going to the starting point, we had to abandon our trip abruptly due to the forecast of a heavy snowfall. It was probably a blizzard. The temperature had dropped. This sudden climate change bewildered all of us and we were informed by our trainer that this kind of change was common in here.

Sudden change in weather conditions forced us to postpone our trip and we made a hasty retreat to our hotel. At the start of the trip we were very excited and now Coach Hire Stanstead our mood was off. We retired to our rooms rather dejected and crestfallen. We consoled ourselves by watching Indian film songs, which were beautifully pictured in the pristine snow clad locale of Switzerland.



While watching songs our instructor told us that many international films were shot around some of these picturesque locations. He also shared his personal experience by showing us some photographs with many actors and actresses stored in his phone taken during the shoot. I envied his collections though he never displayed any pride or attitude but possessed great humility. He was a jolly person always up-to something that made our visit really memorable.
