Catski Ski Zoom Backgrounds
For those feeling frisky during their Friday afternoon meetings


These days we all have one too many video calls, whether it’s Zoom, Teams, Google Meet, GoToMeeting or whatever your digital platform preference. You know the ones where we’re multi-tasking and envisioning ourselves anywhere else and, especially on powder days, out on the mountain. Instead of taking a call with the camera off because of a messy house or lack of enthusiasm for the meeting in question, we’ve designed a new batch of free zoom backgrounds to capture your perfect ski #mood.

We’ve included the images and instructions on how to add these relatable virtual backgrounds to your zoom account so even when you’re not headed To The Mountains between 9-5, you can at least share the good vibes a day on the mountain brings.

You’ll find 42 free, Zoom virtual backgrounds below from ski resorts around the world. Stunning mountain destinations and relaxing apres scenes include shots from Whistler Blackcomb, SkiBig3 Resorts Lake Louise and Banff, Keystone, Chamonix, Courchevel, Kitzbuhel, Aspen, Zermatt, Fernie, Niseko, Breckenridge and Jackson Hole. All the following images are free to download; just make sure to put on your best retro onesie if you’re bringing the mountains to your Zoom happy hour. We also have the perfect chairlift meeting space (see Zermatt), if that’s where you typically take calls on Friday afternoon.

How To Save The Images:

  • Right-click on the image you’d like to use as your background and select ‘save image as’.
