A mini-library with quiet alpine ski slopes and realistic onboard recordings.

The Alps pistes are known for their great snow and peaceful ambiance.
A lack of omnipresent music and minimal air traffic: the perfect spot for recording snow sports!
We captured the calm ambiance and expressive whooshing and carving on these quiet ski slopes. Anything ranging from high speed alpine skiers and distant voices of snowboarders, to a small class, on a variety of pistes.

Despite it's small size, the library consists of a broad range of alpine ski slope recordings.
- Ski slope ambiences with chatty skiers and snowboarders from young to adult (solo and groups)
- Clean passby's on quiet ski slopes with a mix of speeds, perspectives and types (snowboarders and skiers)
- A very handy set of onboard recordings of skiing and snowboarding with various speeds and cadences
- Onboard ski lifts (gondola, open) and drag lifts (T-bar)
- Evolving ambiences of a moving drag lift and gondola station
- The sound of people waiting in line at the ski lifts (a mix of german/dutch/english)

*Three different slopes:
BluePiste (Beginner), RedPiste (Intermediate), BlackPiste (Experienced)

In 2016 we responded to a request on Facebook by sound designers Mikkel Nielsen and Peter Albrechtsen. They were looking for 'clean ski slope ambiences', from somewhere in Europe, for the film Godless.
Arnoud happened to be on ski-vacation at the Kreischberg, in a very quiet part of Austria and as always he brought his trusty Sony PCM-D50. You never know if something nice can be recorded :) Fast forward two years, after some more recordings, with more gear, on the same ski slopes the library is here.
