Skiing can be an exhilarating and exciting pursuit. The clean mountain air can be a welcome reviver from the smog filled oxygen generally breathed in a typical cityscape. More and more it isn’t only the destination that can make your trip enjoyable but also the type of accommodation that you decide to reside in for the duration. In an attempt to take the skiing experience to a new and dynamic level, Sofia de Meyer will be opening her revolutionary ‘Whitepod’ resort this winter.Whitepod offers a new highly exclusive Alpine experience. A hi-tech eco camp for just ten guests situated over 1700m high in the Swiss Alps, it offers the ultimate in luxury and adventure. Access is by ski or snowshoes only. There are no cars. No buses. No hotels. Nothing at all in fact, apart from the majesty of the Alps, the breathtaking beauty of the scenery.Whitepod provides hi-tech sleeping pods which are the result of extensive engineering research. Modelled on the traditional igloo shape, they take tents to new levels of luxury and comfort. Ben Kilbey gets to grips with Sofia, and her vision for a new skiing experience, in this exclusive interview.
