Verbier: Experiencing Snow For The First Time
Okay, it was not the first time I’ve experienced snow. I had it when I first landed in Zurich, the second stop of my journey from the Philippines to Poland. But it was the first time I’ve touched, submerged and enjoyed the snow. 😉
Two days later after I arrived in Poland, we went to Switzerland to meet the guys of Batmaid, the company I’ve been working on since I was in Arcanys, and attended the team building organized by the team: Skiing at Verbier.
That’s right, skiing. Sounds fun, right? Of course it is, unless you don’t know how to ski, which happens to be me. 😀 But it doesn’t matter, there are a lot of things to do in Verbier aside from skiing. You can walk uphill and see the village covered with white fluffy snow. Try sledging which was way fun than I expected. It would have been more fun if I had the right clothes on. After two rounds of sledging, I was already freezing and can’t feel my feet. So yeah, proper clothes is a must. 😛 After sledging, you may try Après–ski, a tradition where people are partying inside a ski lodge after a day of skiing. If you’re into foods, there are a lot of restaurants to choose from but you should definitely try Cheese Fondue and Raclette, especially if you love cheese. I tried both but I like Raclette more although I didn’t eat much because my stomach is not so cheese-friendly. 😀
Everything we’ve done in Verbier was all new and first time to me and I did enjoy every single part of it, including sleeping due to jet lag. 😛 If I have another chance of visiting here soon, I would totally go back here, specially during summer. I’m sure that Verbier is beautiful AF.
