Face it, folks. We’re now a civilization of endless selfies, bling and anything that revolves around empty narcissistic social media posts. So there’s no better time than now to prove to your friends how much of a stud you are by recording your bike adventure feats in the mountains of Switzerland with a drone in tow. Verbier is already renown for its magnificent ski slopes in the winter time. But that doesn’t mean it hasn’t shuttered up business during the summer months.
In fact, Verbier has teamed up with French firm Hexo + to film bikers as they maneuver over more than 140 km of Verbier pistes on mountain bikes. 48 hours after your bike adventure is finished, you’ll have your very own adventure film to show for your efforts.
A bluetooth connected drone follows you every pedal of the way, recording every inch of route, every slog through rough terrain and every spectacular wheelie you perform. It’s the only service of its kind currently offered by a resort.
Fancy filming your sporting endeavors in Verbier? Prices start at about 250 CHF or roughly $260. Your film will be pulsing with epic aerial views of your ride and the stunning landscape surrounding you. What’s more, you’ll never be able to achieve the same kind of cinematography from a head mounted camera or a simple goPro set up. This is sport filmmaking of another brand.
