Recognising excellence in the ski & snowboard industry
Established 5 years ago The World Snow Awards, presented by The Telegraph Ski and Snowboard, honour the very best in the world of skiing and snowboarding.
The prestigious awards recognise the best brands, retailers, resorts, operators, venues and personalities in the industry, highlighting the top performers from the past 12 months and the most promising prospects for the season to come.
With 23 awards up for grabs the winners are decided by a judging panel of the leading figures in the UK skiing and snowboarding industry as well as by public vote. The likes of technique guru and celebrity coach Warren Smith and the Telegraph’s ski editor Henry Druce will meet to decide which travel providers and resorts have made the biggest impact and which new kit stands out from the crowd, as well as choosing a worthy winner for the coveted lifetime achievement award – awarded to someone who has made a remarkable difference with their contribution to UK snowsports.
The awards are unique in that they allow the UK public to have their say in a total of 4 categories including Best Snowsports School and Best UK Chalet Company. Results from the industry ski and snowboard tests are also compiled to celebrate the best hardware that will grace the mountain next season.
With awards for everything from Family Resort of the Year to best UK snowsports retailer, The World Snow Awards celebrate everything that matters to skiers and snowboarders in the UK when choosing how to spend their next trip in the mountains.
Entries are now open across all categories – winners will be awarded at The Telegraph Ski & Snowboard Show London at Battersea Evolution 27 – 30 October 2016.
