Ski*Pals is a new UK Web site which enables solo skiers and snowboarders to find partners to share the costs and fun of a winter holiday.
Ski*Pals can be used to find skiers of a similar level to explore the slopes with. Alternatively, solo skiers can make contact with other like-minded solo skiers to take advantage of holiday deals that benefit pairs and groups. Ski*Pals also brings an end to hotel single supplements, as solo skiers can now search the site for partners to share accommodation with.
Director of Ski*Pals, John McGowan, told OnTheSnow.co.uk: "Now it will be skiers, not the holiday company, who are in control. For solo skiers, it's all downhill from here. They can book flights that suit their timetable, enjoy cheaper transfers with car and taxi hire, find a weekend share, dig out a couple of skiing days midweek or hook up together for an entire season."
A Ski*Pals membership is free. Skiers can post their own requests and details to create the type of holiday they want after signing up. It's also possible to advertise accommodation - you can post an accommodation advert for a period of 28 days for £20 including a photo.
