Yes. The Ski Club of Great Britain is the UK's leading supplier of snow information. During the winter, we report on the snow conditions in 250 resorts, 5 days a week, and our Leader and Ambassador resorts are also updated at the weekends. We also write an online snow editorial every Monday and Thursday that gives an overview of the snow conditions in each country. We also have 17 years worth of historical snow data. If you need a tailor made snow report report for your publication then get in touch with us.
Is there a snowsports safety code?
Yes. The International Ski Federation (FIS) has established ten rules for conduct for skiers and snowboarders which you should follow at all times.
Does the Ski Club have an environmental code of conduct?
Yes. We have our own environmental policy. We also launched the Respect the Mountain campaign in 2004 to help safeguard the natural environment and the long-term future of skiing by raising awareness of environmental issues in the mountains. We also publish an environmental database, called the Green Resort Guide, which advises skiers on what resorts are doing to help protect the environment, ranking their performance on different criteria including recycling, green power, traffic reduction and building policy.
