Snowresort.com was born out of the frustration of one of the founders Phil Holland. Phil spent years planning ski holidays, where the process of choosing a destination and finding accommodation, took far too long, it involved many hours of research and visiting countless websites.
Often, even days of hard work, Phil was unhappy with the results and felt he was “making do”. The alternative could be to use a tour operator, but this limited choice to the usual 50 or so most commercial ski resorts and still provided little quality information to help when choosing holiday destination.
These experiences lead to the search for a solution, Snowresort was born. With the help of co-founder Simon Kilday, an ex-alpine ski racer, a carefully planned period of research was started.
We talked to resorts, the ski industry and most importantly the skiing public to see if one website to research, plan and buy a ski holiday was wanted and could work. These conversations helped refine our ideas and added to them to establish a better product concept. During this research period, we tested ideas using a test website, allowing us to further fine tune information and services on offer.
In 2020 we were joined by Chris Thompson, who bought with him 25 years’ experience in the world of ski holidays and winter sport travel, Chris worked across Tui’s ski brands and subsequently ran specialist operator, Ski Famille. Chris also believed there is a need for change in the way skiers and snowboarders plan and buy their ski holidays.
We have put together a small specialist team, and Snowresort has developed from concept and ideas into Phase One of a long project with a new website being launched in Autumn 2021.
So what is Snowresort.com?
Snowresort.com is a website designed for skiers and snowboarders to help them choose where to enjoy the mountains. Our site guides them through the process of choosing a ski resort, our search filter and then gives options to book accommodation, flights, airport transfers, ski hire, ski lessons and travel insurance all in one place.
So how does Snowresort.com work?
How often have you discovered the perfect restaurant, or the greatest ski run only on your last day in a ski resort? We have, far too often! So, we decided to change this for everyone.
Snowresort aims to help you choose your resort with comprehensive information, showing what is available, in the resort and village, as well as the skiing and travel information. We even go as far as showing what facilities and non-ski activities are available in resort, to give you a better, more comprehensive view of what each ski resort offers. We will make it simpler to choose a destination for your ski holiday.
Our magazine section gives you up to date information on what’s happening in the world of skiing, ideas to help you explore new ski destinations and creates a place to find special offers and last-minute deals from tour operators and holiday companies. Working with a large range of partners, we will bring you a huge choice of accommodation to book in your chosen ski resort.
