Ski Line offers over 70 new exciting destinations to discover during the 2006 ski season –
The UK’s leading independent worldwide ski property rental specialist, Ski Line, claims to be taking the biggest step forward of any UK ski operator for the 2006 season. The company, which last year turned over £5million in 2005 and is looking to double that figure in 2006, has dramatically increased the size of its programme for the coming ski season, raising the number of ski resorts on offer from under ninety to a massive 168. New resorts available include the Borovets (Bulgaria), Kitzbuhel (Austria), Argentiere (France), Bardonecchia (Italy), Steamboat (USA), Soldeu (Andorra) and Fernie (Canada).
“We are always looking to improve quality and choice for our customers, and for the 2006 season we have done exactly that. Unlike many ski property websites, we are a real skiers' ski company," Managing Director of Ski Line, Angus Kinloch, comments. “It’s not just a question of adding the best properties, but also adding the best staff – something which the bigger ski property rental companies have overlooked. To ensure a good working relationship with our customers, we know that we have to employ staff who are more passionate, more obsessive and more knowledgeable about skiing or boarding than they are. It sounds simple enough, but actually acquiring staff with the required knowledge of the 70 odd new resorts has been anything but; which is precisely why we are the only company looking to make such progress in 2006".
A number of enhancements for 2006 add new dimensions to Ski Line’s previous packages, including new self-catering chalet holidays, which allow customers on a smaller budget to visit resorts in the Alps and experience the rich culture and skiing that is on offer across Europe.
In addition, the website now features a full range of luxurious properties in idyllic mountainside locations, large chalets big enough for two or three families, elegant and modern apartments for two, properties positioned close to or on the piste and traditional resort favourites, geared to those looking for ski, snow and schnapps.
Ski Line also offers a range of special offers and last minute deals for those looking to travel in low season or discounts if more than one family are travelling together.
