Skiworld ski holidays
We have been selling Skiworld holidays since 1992. Skiworld was set up in 1982 by businessman and skier, Ian Coleby. He recognised that there was a gap in the market for a ski holiday company to provide chalet holidays going to the best alpine resorts at a competitive price.
Since 1982 the company has grown substantially and it now sells a wide range of accommodation options (chalets. hotels and self catering apartments) to a multitude of ski resorts in Europe and North America. However, the original roots of the business still run through its core today with 'good value' catered chalet accommodation in the most snow sure resorts of the Alps remaining the principal part of the business.
Skiworld in their own words is "truly a company run by skiers for skiers". Their UK office in London is staffed by a team of dedicated skiers and boarders who are passionate about the sport and the top level of management (the Chairman, M.D. and Marketing Director) have all remained loyal to Skiworld since the beginning.
Skiworld currently (2017) manage over 130 separate chalet properties providing over 1,600 chalet beds each week. Along with their hotel and self catering accommodation Skiworld carries approximately 50,000 skiers away on holiday each winter. Skiworld are one of the largest independently owned ski companies operating in the UK market place today.
Skiworld - comments from Alpine Answers:We have always supported Skiworld and over the years have sent thousands of clients on holiday with them. They have a wide range of chalet properties from small chalets sleeping 6 guests to large chalet hotels sleeping 100+. The quality varies too from very basic properties right through to chalets that are genuinely luxurious. However, as a large company employing hundreds of resort staff each winter the quality of their staff does vary. They are usually willing and enthusiastic but are also young and sometimes inexperienced.
We would not recommend a Skiworld holiday if you are looking for a 'gourmand experience'. However, if you are looking for a good value chalet holiday in the best resorts of the Alps they are pretty much spot on.
The attention to detail shown by their holiday booking staff in their London office is quite frankly pretty poor. However, we will sort out all the niggling little clerical mistakes on their holiday invoices before our clients get to see any paperwork. That is part of our service.
