World Ski Awards

The World Ski Awards aims to improve standards within the ski industry by rewarding organisations that are leaders in their field.


The award organisers explain that,

World Ski Awards was developed in reaction to overwhelming demand from the ski industry for a programme that was fair and transparent, a programme with a mission to serve as the definitive benchmark of excellence, and to help to foster a new era of growth in ski tourism.


Ever since its inception in 2013, World Ski Awards has had hundreds of thousands of travel professionals and skiers across the globe voting for their favourite resorts, chalets and hotels.

The 2015 World Ski Awards is set to take place on the 20th – 22nd November at the A-ROSA Kitzbühel, Austria. According to the organisers,

The 2015 World Ski Awards will be a three day programme of unrivalled networking events, dinners, and exclusive ski experience activities. The highlight event will be the red carpet World Ski Awards Gala Ceremony itself on the evening of November 21st. Ski tourism figureheads and market leaders from North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Australasia will be in attendance as the 2015 World Ski Awards winners are unveiled.

Voting for the 2015 World Ski Awards will open on 5th June and close on 25th September 2015. Votes are cast by industry professionals, executives, travel buyers, tour operators, travel agents, media and members of the public. The votes are submitted online at the World Ski Awards website and works on a first-past-the-post system to guarantee impartiality.
