The Whitepod Resort in Les Cerniers, Switzerland, features a mountain lodge and chalet, including 7 km of ski slopes with private ski lifts. What’s so special about this place? Whitepod.

They took a long exposure photograph of each session, capturing an interesting image of each letter.

Pretty neat stuff. Give it a try yourself. Download the 26 video files here (.zip, 3.9 mb).
