The Alpine Ski School in Zermatt wanted to create a unique and exciting video advert to showcase their ski and snowboard instructors in action. To achieve this, we decided to use a first-person view (FPV) drone to capture footage of two of their instructors skiing and snowboarding at the Gornergrat train station, located at 3089 meters above sea level.
The Gornergrat train station is the highest open-air cog railway station in Europe, offering stunning views of the surrounding mountain range. The ski school wanted to take advantage of this unique location and the beautiful scenery to create a visually striking advert.
To capture the footage, we flew an FPV drone following the two instructors as they skied and snowboarded down the mountain in close-proximity. The drone was able to capture dynamic and thrilling footage of the instructors in action, giving viewers an immersive and exciting experience.
The final video was a huge success, attracting a lot of attention and helping to promote the ski school to a wider audience. It effectively demonstrated the skills and expertise of the instructors, as well as the beautiful location and scenery that the ski school had to offer.
Overall, the use of an FPV drone at the Gornergrat train station was a creative and effective way for the Alpine Ski School in Zermatt to showcase their instructors and promote their business.
