Travel company Ski Solutions says that despite recent economic and political upheavals, its booking revenue is now up 23% from pre-pandemic levels.

It added that “demand has not decreased” for four and five-star packages despite a 15% increase in prices in three years.

The company said it was ‘wobbled by the unrelenting strength of demand’, with skiers ‘unwilling to give up their annual holiday for the mountains’.

Among the most popular destinations are the Alpine resorts of Val d’Isere, Val Thorens and Verbier, and outside of Europe are Canada.
