Ski holiday specialist Ski-Direct reports rise in ski holiday bookings to Canada

October 24, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Ski Holiday specialist Ski-Direct reports that Canada is attracting more ski holidaymakers than in previous years. People taking group ski holidays especially are heading to the slopes in Canada, according to analysis of early bookings made at through specialist online ski holiday booking agency

A number of trans-Atlantic airline companies have announced extra services to Canada's ski resorts this winter, making the pristine powder and awe-inspiring peaks of Canada more reachable for ski holidaymakers from Europe.

Another boost to Canada’s popularity is the excellent snow conditions its resorts enjoyed during the Winter 2007 season.

Jon Pearce from Ski-Direct says: “Canada is world-famous for its skiing. Snow conditions in the Canadian ski resorts are excellent and have some of the longest ski seasons in the world. Many of our customers return to Canada year after year once they get the taste of it.”

Canada is an ideal destination for group ski holidays, as the ski packages available at the Canadian ski resorts are often more flexible than those available in Europe.

Ski-Direct specialises in putting together the right ski holiday for groups of any size.

Ski-Direct has received the largest number of bookings for major North-American resorts, from both groups and individuals. The spectacular Banff area in Alberta, Canada has been a favourite this season. Banff is the only North American ski resort located in a National Park.

The unspoilt ski resort offers three unique mountains for skiers of all grades.

Another noticeable trend in ski holiday bookings this season is that people tend to be making bookings at the High resorts in Europe. This may be due to some disappointment in snow conditions last season. Late bookers seem to be waiting for snow fall to decide where to go for their ski holiday.

Only Andorra bucks this trend, the small country is famous as an ideal destination for skiing on a budget
