We have created this event so that all of us who work in the industry can fill that long summer gap between seasons with some more snow!
The Summer Weekender is a chance to catch up with friends, enjoy the Alps and - if you want to - represent your company in the Industry Ski Champs.
Don't take it from us...
"As well being a quite ridiculous amount of fun, I found that the Summer Weekender was a great chance to get to know others in the ski industry, swap ideas and do business. Since last year's Weekender, as a graphic designer specialising in ski, I've gained several new clients and made plenty more key contacts. All in all it's the perfect way to network - and still get to play in the mountains." Kate Ransby
