Shades of Winter Engelberg

And everyone said wohooo! Four days on the most intensive and fun camp Engelberg has ever seen (not-so-objective-opinion). So there we were, the girls, Shades of Winter coaches and Thomas (lucky one ;)).

Ski Lodge Engelberg hosted us amazingly- home away from home except serving better breakfast than the place most people call “home”.  Tack! Moreover, Engelbert-Titlis offered the great setting (not much but maybe the most snow in the Alps right now (& even some powder), GoPro the cameras for some legendary material (#goproshadesofwinterengelberg), RECCO® some extra safety and Peak Performance topped it all with (free and dry) champagne.


But again, the best were the people. The beautiful & talented pros aka Shades of Winter coaches, accompanied by local guide Thomas, & the amazing, brave funny & talented women whom I’ve never met before but who I now know share the same passion for skiing and living to the fullest (the famous reference group). This kind of companion is a luxury which I unfortunately haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy too much the last two years. But now I did & it was just awesome to shred with these sisters from another mothers.

It was more than nice to learn more about the safety in the mountains, level up my freeskiing technique & especially to have that  extra pressure put on you & the support & the smiles. Like Matilda told us, it’s all about finding your own challenge but also to have companion with whom to share the pure happiness mountains deliver.

I’m definitely in to more trips (Japan…) with these girls anytime.

It was nice. Very nice. Thank you Switzerland, Engelberg, Ski Lodge Engelberg, Sandra, Matilda, Thomas, Melissa and all the girls. Loved it!


Neljä intensiivistä ja erinomaista päivää Sveitsissä mahtavien naisten kanssa. Kiitos ja anteeksi!
