They are keen to get on the pistes, or off piste, straight after breakfast and often ski until the last lifts of the day. We are seeing this category of holidays increasing in popularity and we will continue to provide a huge range of exciting holidays for our Peak Experience members for as long as there is the demand. They are a loyal, dedicated bunch of skiers!” said Caroline Stuart Taylor, CEO of the Ski Club of Great Britain.
