"planing to cut and upload... " there will be several shorter clips without audio background.

The Video is great! Cutted into several clips and Model released (?) it will work.
But like that it is NOT a stock video. Stock videos consist rather of short clips of a short duration without audio.
Are you the full copyright holder of the music?
In stock video you are not supposed to edit the clips too much, but rather deliver raw material with a broad spectrum of possibilities to other editors.

Hope this helps

I don't remove any logos from videos, I just mark them as editorial and sell them on Pond5 and Revostock.  Shutterstock have a complicated policy and I don't sell much there, so I don't bother uploading anything with a logo there.  Shutterstock can also be very fussy about camera movement, so I only send them clips done on a tripod.

It's a fun clip but I think there is some clips already on iStock etc. that are "more attractive".
Do a search on iStock yourself with the keyword "ski" and you can see what your future competition does.

The basic idea is good, there is not very much content like that online so it's a niche somewhat. But either way it has to be visually attractive.
It would have made a world of a difference if you had a sunny day there without so much fog. Colors are dull.

Either way, just sign up with all the big footage sites and upload it. See what happens.

My best-selling site for stock video has always been Pond5.  Based on my experience, there are several sections of this footage that will work for stock, although I didn't look through all of the footage.  In the beginning, there's probably too much camera shake.  However, unless you plan to shoot and upload stock video on a continuing basis, you're likely to be disappointed with the results.  At first, I was seeing several sales per month on Shutterstock, but I haven't had a sale in recent months.  CanStockPhoto also sells stock video, and I've had a few sales there.  I see regular sales with istock.  You might also check out revostock.com.

In the order of popularity:
- Pond5
- iStock
- Shutterstock
- Fotolia
- Revostock
- Clipcanvas
- Clipdealer
- Canstockphoto

There are more that I don't have any experience with. Maybe someone else can chime in about those.

I wouldn't upload HD to Fotolia...  They sell 1080p HD for $4 through subscription.  Other than that, it's a good list.

I second that point about fotolia, and I would add that their review process is extremely arbitrary. Not worth the trouble.

definitely - most sites ask for model releases, and if they're not available treat the footage as editorial

You can opt out for video subscription sales in fotolia, i've done that some months ago and it's working! Look at the bottom of your profile page!
