World Travel Guide launches new ski zone
Friday 14th October 2011
Leading travel website World Travel Guide has today launched a new ski hub, which is set to become one of the best resources for skiers and snowboarders available online. With more than 100 in-depth ski resort guides, this new area is a comprehensive and invaluable source of advice and information. Along with traditional ski favourites such as Chamonix, Verbier and St Moritz, WTG covers lesser-known destinations such as Rusutsu and Riksgränsen.
The WTG ski section (www.worldtravelguide.net/ski) is designed to help skiers and boarders choose the perfect ski resort for their needs. In addition to the guides, there are also features written by WTG’s expert ski writers, which will be added throughout the season, offering skiers insights into the best destinations for them.
Detailed guides include information about accommodation, how to get there, runs, slopes, activities and après-ski options. Each guide also includes seven-day weather forecasts, snow reports and an historic snow-depth tool allowing travellers to check previous snowfall over a three-year period.
Commercial Director, John Finlayson, said: “Our outstanding guide content is independent, in-depth and up to date. With our expanded ski guides and features, we hope to offer skiers and boarders a comprehensive hub to help them find their perfect holiday in the mountains.”
WTG’s Ski Guide Editor, Jonathan Payne said of the new ski hub, “We believe the new ski hub is a terrific resource for both experienced and novice skiers, and snowboarders. Whether you’re going to Alpbach or Zermatt, you’ll find all you need to know to help you plan a ski or snowboarding trip, all in one central place on our website.”
