Two Nepalese Sherpas with multiple Everest summits under their belts, visit Verbier to hone their skiing skills.

 

 

Dante the Manager of the Offshore Cafe in Verbier is with two Sherpa mountain guides fom Nepal.

Ang Dawa and Pasang Ongchu were in resort for one week only, to learn how to ski before heading up Everest.

Their intention was to return home with teaching skills to share with fellow mountaineers in Nepal.

Pasang Ongchu is an Everest mountain guide and has summited Mt Everest seven times this year.

His colleague, Ang Dawa from the Solukhumbu District and who now lives in Kathmandu has also had multiple summits of Mt Everest, so far this year he's clocked up six sumits.

The video shows the duo climbing up to Mont Fort in Verbier in snowy conditions, learning to ski, and enjoying a typical Swiss Cheese fondu.

We wish them luck with their next Mt Everest expeditions and a lot of luck with their skiing enterprise in Nepal.
