Ski Solutions is one of the UK’s most recognised and trusted ski travel companies carrying approximately 10,000 passengers a year and with an annual turnover in excess of £10m.
The company formed in 1976 to independently manage and advise on travel arrangements for skiers, at that time poorly serviced by the High Street travel agent. Initially operating as a travel agent, the business began to grow a fledgling tailor-made tour operating programme in the early 2000's dealing with 3-5* hotels in the ‘classic’ Alpine resorts. A very high standard of service, and the specialist knowledge of a highly-experienced sales team are the hallmarks of the Ski Solutions product and our means of differentiating ourselves in a crowded market. In 2007 it acquired ifyouski.com and with its strong online presence and contrasting reach sits within the group as a standalone brand.
