Youth sports development tour company Inspiresport is expanding its range to include ski tours for the 2015/16 season.
The Cardiff-based firm has to date focused on football, rugby, hockey and netball, but says expansion comes following consecutive years of record growth.
On the back of this it says it has “accelerated a number of initiatives that fall in line with the company’s strategic long term growth plan”.
Steve Butchart, chief executive of Inspiresport and a former Thomas Cook executive, said: “2015 has been a hugely successful year for inspiresport in all key areas of our core football, rugby, hockey and netball tour product.
“We have moved forward with our growth plan to include a new official kit supplier in Under Armour, the ongoing development of new inbound propositions and now the introduction of a brand new ski programme.”
“As many schools in the UK go on multiple sports tours with Inspiresport, we saw the introduction of a ski programme as an opportunity to expand our offering further, providing the same high standard of service our schools are so familiar with.
“Naturally, we also look forward to introducing our ski product to schools who have not as yet booked a tour with us.”
“Inspireski will focus on school ski trips to world-class resorts in the USA, Canada, Andorra and Italy, where our focus is to offer a broad range of products to suit any schools’ requirements whilst retaining our core ethos.”
Inspireski guarantees that once deposits are paid there will be no accommodation changes for the group.
Butchart said: “We have a hand-picked programme offering the very best of skiing for schools in the destinations we feature, and once monies are paid we will lock their hotel of choice in, there’ll be no last-minute alterations.”
