Why we’re pleased to work with...
We’re totally independent (and will remain so) but from time to time the team is fortunate in having practical support from a select group of industry professionals.
For some time now we’ve been particularly impressed by ski tour-operator Peak Retreats and its subsidiary company Ski Collection. Each is run by hugely experienced travel professionals who apply all their respective insight and enthusiasm for their native France to providing skiers and summer visitors with award-winning service, rigorous quality control and great value holidays. For our part, experiencing ski areas and accommodation exactly as other visitors would do so enables us to produce meaningful resort reviews which are relevant to our readers’ own need for the kind of insight which goes beyond what a promotional brochure can provide.
