Crystal Ski Cancels All Holidays for This Season
16th February 2021
The UK’s largest ski operator has formally announced it will not be running any holidays this winter. Some had hoped there might be a possibility towards the end of the season.
The announcement was made by the company’s managing director, Chris Logan.
“We’re so disappointed not to be able to get our customers to the mountains this winter and we’d like to thank them for their continued patience, understanding and support,” he said.
“We know skiers and snowboarders are desperate to get back on the snow and we’re now looking forward to making next winter one to remember.”
All customers affected will be proactively contacted to discuss a range of flexible options.
These include amending their holiday to a future season with an incentive, or cancelling and receiving a refund.
It comes as no great surprise given the continued impact of Covid-19 on worldwide travel and ski resorts.
Italy and France remain closed with Austria open to locals only.
Switzerland is open, but currently going on holiday for most in the UK is illegal.
There are strict border controls entering the ski nations and quarantine requirements on arrival back in the UK.
Crystal Ski cancelled its holidays until early March back in January.
It’s main competitor, Inghams, has already cancelled its holidays until April and it is expected it will make a similar decision to Crystal.
Crystal reports high demand for next winter and has a wide range of ski holidays on offer from 6 December 2021 until 10 April 2022.
They are available to book now with low deposits and the company describes them as “strong value deals”.
Crystal Ski Holidays offers holidays to 13 ski destinations in over 100 resorts from 21 UK airports including flights, accommodation and transfers as standard.
It has more than 35 years’ experience of providing ski holidays in Europe and North America.
Crystal Ski Holidays is part of TUI UK & Ireland and TUI Group of companies, the world’s number one integrated tourism business, operating in 180 countries with 31 major source markets and over 30 million customers.
