The video challenge – Who can make the best episode of Summit TV.

We’ll set this up after skiing the day before but if you are reading this and want to start thinking the goal is

  • In small groups to make a Summit TV episode (that would be suitable to use online!). 
  • Can be technical, or entertaining/informative about Summit/Zermatt.
  • Could involve speaking to camera or subtitles (less good if you are going down the entertaining route)
  • We will have a screening at the first team meeting and the winning team will win dinner out.
  • Hopefully some of it will be good enough for the internet!
