It is the latest UK ski operator to cease trading amid the impact of Covid-19 and tough conditions ahead with Brexit.
“It is with great regret that we have taken the decision to cease trading,” said the company.
Ski Amis specialised in catered chalets and self-catered apartments in France.
It’s been operating in the French Alps since 1989 and has won several awards.
In 2018 it was named Best Chalet and Winter Sports Accommodation Provider at the British Travel Awards.
“We would like to thank all of our loyal clients who have chosen us to take their holidays with over the years, along with the staff who have worked hard to provide our clients with the very best holidays.”
There has been reaction from PlanetSKI readers who have been on holiday with Ski Amis.
Steve Coombs: A great company to stay with, so really sad news.
Rebecca Mclean: Very sad news.
Scott Fraser: Extremely saddening.
Hannah Eldridge: So sad for the industry and staff affected xxx
Eleanor Coultish: This is sad. Best (hearty) chalet food I ever had!
Janis Bootle: Sorry for staff had great holidays with Ski Amis in La Tania
Laura Taylor: That’s so sad.
Rob Pincombe: Bloody shame
Josy Davis: And another!
People who have booked a holiday are advised to look at the ABTOT web site.
If you paid by card then you should contact your card issuer to raise a section 75 chargeback claim and if you paid by bank transfer then you should submit a claim to ABTOT.
It is estimated that claims may take up to six months to process.
“We have tried very hard throughout this period however unfortunately we are left with no other alternatives but to take this very difficult step and we are so very sorry to everybody affected,” the company added
It is the latest grim news for the UK snowsports industry as others have gone out of business or limited their winter programme.
