What's new for Iglu Ski for winter 2017

As winter 2016/17 officially kicks off, Iglu Ski takes a look at what’s new for this exciting season. As well as there being a lot of new additions and improvements to some of our favourite ski resorts, there have also been some thrilling additional features closer to home… at Iglu Ski!

As we continue to deliver the best service and products to British winter sports fans, we have made sure that that we can present the largest range of new products in the UK market. The main element for this year was the launch of the new website, www.igluski.com.

 

 

New website


Key features of the site include; a modern attractive design, a more engaging user experience including new responsive design and enhanced search logic.

From design to UX and development, the project was delivered by our in-house team of ski specialists so the needs of the skiers have been considered every step of the way. The improvements reinforce Iglu Ski’s position as the UK’s number one specialist ski travel agency as it aligns evolving technology with advancing consumer needs.

“Iglu stays ahead of the game again. We’ve taken the best website in the Winter Sports industry and made it even better. We now have more detailed searches at a faster speed on a website that holds more ski resort information than any other in Europe. This now sets the standard for the whole UK industry.” – Adam Johnson, Sales Director

Finding the perfect ski holiday for our customer’s is very important to us. We believe our ski experts have the knowledge and training to be able to do this once we have the customers on the phone, but in a growing digital world, consumers want to be more in control of the search so we have improved elements of our ski holiday search to help people find the right holiday for them.

The search continues to offer the most up to date pricing and availability to our customers but is bigger, faster and more stable than ever before. We’ve built a new faceted search design to allow for complex multi variable search queries and introduced new search parameters to link our expert knowledge with the online search experience.

“As well as the new slick, modern & responsive design, the new faceted search is a real winner – it’s great at finding skiers what they’re looking for. You can filter by resort attributes, price, property features and offers and the results update dynamically and immediately – it really is slick and in my opinion a cut above anything else out there.” – James Box, Head of Ski Product

11 new resorts

 

As the need to ‘experience more’ grows amongst British skiers and snowboarder, we are happy to announce that for this season we have 11 more ski resort on offer to new and exciting destinations. As well as off the beaten track ski resorts we know can offer skiing in Spain and Scandinavia for people in search of somewhere new this season.

High in the Andalucian Panibetic mountain range is one of Spain’s finest resorts – Sierra Nevada. Not only is it Europe’s most southerly (and therefore sunny) ski resort but the village is also one of the highest, at 2,150 meters. Iglu Ski have a number of deals available, all specifically designed for the agent, including ski weekends, short breaks and seven night holidays.

As skiing in Scandinavia grows, we have re-introduced Åre in Sweden, one of Scandinavia’s leading ski resorts which is a fantastic option for UK skiers, with a new direct flight route from London to Ostersund, starting December 2016.

In addition, we have added Oslo and Trysil in Norway to our portfolio for the coming season, great options for UK skiers looking for an alternative option to the Alps, but still looking for somewhere close by. These resorts have fantastic skiing conditions, whilst offering a more laid-back atmosphere than some of the glitzier Alpine resorts. One of the key draws of Oslo, is that the ski area is just 30 minutes by train from the centre of the city.
