WE ASKED. YOU FANTABULOUS SKI-OBSESSED FOLK ANSWERED!
THE RESULTS OF OUR POST-PANDEMIC SKI SURVEY ARE IN AND THEY LOOK SUPER POSITIVE INDEED – #WEWILLSKIAGAIN!
As we continue the transition to a ‘new normal’, we’re dedicated to ensuring Fall-Line continues to be the most informed, relevant, useful and entertaining ski magazine out there so we asked you guys to share your current thoughts about how you might ski and travel next season to help us adapt, evolve and plan.
What did we find out from the 300+ survey responses? Well, 3 people definitely won’t be going next year, which is a shame. But given what’s just happened, we can probably live with that. Especially since 81% definitely will, and 28% of those want to go more than they’d planned this season.
In general, few Fall-Liners were looking to put significant changes in place assuming travel was in place and resorts were open. The biggest change is transport, with around a 10% drop in regular flyers looking to drive or train it.
When it comes to changing destinations, it’s the USA which loses out and Scotland which claims a narrow victory as the country most likely to be considered which hadn’t been before.
The full results are below but this one clearly stands out…
Assuming it’s possible to travel and ski how likely are you to go next season?
