James Bond to ski in Swiss Alps

Date Posted: 21st Sep 2007

People enjoying ski holidays in Zermatt should keep an eye open for the spy who likes it shaken and not stirred, as James Bond takes to the slopes.

According to reports, blonde Bond actor Daniel Craig is currently taking ski lessons to train for a number of ski sequences that will feature in his new 007 outing Bond 22.

Sources have suggested that the action film will be set for the most part in the Swiss Alps, which some viewers may recognise from ski holidays in Zermatt and Verbier ski holidays.

"For the first time since 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Bond will be largely snow-bound. Much of it will be filmed in the Swiss Alps. The film is in pre-production for a major ski sequence," a production team source has said.

Skiing is a common theme in Bond films, actor Pierce Brosnan once engaged in a gun fight with armed parachutists as he skied down a mountain, while Roger Moore's Bond himself was seen skiing off a cliff before whipping out a Union flag and floating safely to the ground.

However, the prospect of enjoying some martini-based apres ski with the latest Bond hero is sure to get Daniel Craig fans booking their ski holidays in Zermatt.
