As the hot summer is left behind, Emirates Holidays, the tour-operating arm of Dubai-based Emirates Airline, captures the essence of travellers' passion for ski and unveils its new ski brochure with 367 kilometers of extra ski slopes.
Recognised as a regular fixture on the winter sports travellers' calendar, the launch of the ski brochure, this year, extends Emirates Holidays' offering by introducing the most exclusive Canadian ski resorts of Whistler Blackcomb in the Coast Mountain range North of Vancouver, and legendary Lake Louise, located in the heart of the majestic Banff National Park.
With 15 ski resort villages and 64 hotels in six countries, the new ski brochure provides an extensive choice of flexible and affordable quality packages to families, as well as couples, singles and groups.
Dina Al Herais, Vice President Commercial Operations, Emirates Holidays, said: “After the success of last year's ski brochure, we are delighted to introduce this year’s edition with a brand new destination. This is part of our main priority of keeping the product wide, innovative, and exciting.”
She added: “We can tailor holiday vacations to cater to people’s budget or choice of destination and ski resort.”
Mima Saddi, Sales Manager, Airlink Travel Agency said: "It has always been rewarding to sell Emirates Holidays ski packages. Its holidays are professionally organised, show depth of Emirates' quality and offer a wide choice that's enough to satisfy every winter sports enthusiast. We are very excited about the interest this new brochure, now with Canada, will create amongst our regular and new customers."
In the ski brochure, Whistler Blackcomb and Lake Louise in Canada join the most prominent ski resorts in the world such as Seefeld in Austria, surrounded by magnificent mountain panoramas and also popular with non-skiers and families; the fashionable St Moritz in Switzerland, winter playground for the international jet set; Cortina D'Ampezzo in Italy, considered the queen of the Dolomites; Val d'Isère in France, selected to host the 2009 World Skiing Championships; and Lebanon's best ski destination, Faray Mzaar.
Winter sports holiday makers can enjoy over 2000 kilometers of ski slopes, catered for all levels of skill – from beginner to advance – as well as a wide range of other activities, including snowboarding, skating, tobogganing, paragliding, scenic walking and sleigh rides.
Valid from 1st October until 31st March, the ski brochure offers much more than sun, snow and superb skiing as travellers can also enjoy vibrant après ski, exceptional restaurants and sparkling entertainment.
