Stevan Popovich – Product Manager
Stevan is a ski industry veteran and has skied in some of the quirkiest places in the world while working for UK’s major tour operators – Caucasus, Tatra Mountains, Lapland, Pyrenees and the Balkans, to name but the few. 'Ski and see' is his motto, so it comes as no surprise that Austria is his favourite destination.
Stevan’s tip: You'll never be stumped for places to ski. In fact, when it comes to booking your holiday, the most important factors should be the resorts and flights. Followed by the extra elements, such as the resort amenities, the proximity of the lifts, atmosphere, number of slopes, location, etc.
Emma Gastinel – Concierge
Our gorgeous Emma started skiing at the age of 5. Her passion originated in France and as the years went on she quickly progressed to an advanced level. Her favourite place to ski are the 3 Valleys because she can get lost (the good kind of lost) in the fantastic ski circuit which is covered by the same lift pass.
Emma’s tip: There's nothing worse than skiing in the slush, so pay attention to the snow record of your chosen resort before booking. Especially if you're planning an Easter ski holiday.
Sophie Stileman - Concierge
Sophie has been raving about ski since day dot! She gets excited about it all, from hitting the snow first thing in the morning to socialising in lively après-ski bars. Though she's an Austrian fanatic, she is an extremely well-travelled skier with a wealth of knowledge of Europe’s most popular ski resorts.
Sophie’s tip: If you're hiring a car from Geneva airport, book the collection from the terminal on the French side – it works out much cheaper and the brief motorway journey will take you straight into Chamonix!
Julia Bianco – Product Executive
Our Italian Alps expert, Julia, squeezes a holiday every year whilst visiting her family and friends. She's incredibly sporty and so Julia equally enjoys mountain adventures and strongly recommends trying out ski-touring as well as cross-country skiing.
Julia’s tip: Look out for the recreational and non-skiers in your party and try to find a happy medium in your choice of resort. You will be amazed at how many places offer extensive leisure-spa complexes <g id="1339" data-gr-id="1339">consisting</g> of ice-skating rinks, bowling alleys, etc.
