WHERE WE’VE COME FROM

After several summers building our brother company, The Yacht Week, a seven day sailing event bringing together a unique blend of young professionals from all around the world. But we realised that seeing these incredible people only once a year was just not enough.

 

With our known love of skiing, we simply swapped salty waters with fresh snow and took the party and it’s people to the mountains. The Ski Week launched in 2014 with its first ever event in Obertauern, Austria. The event was exclusive to previous TYW guests and all 400 spots sold out in 45 minutes.

Today, we continue to travel to new mountains creating an entirely new kind of on-snow experience everywhere we go.

 

WHERE WE’RE GOING

Our vision is a simple one: We strive to provide the best ski experience imaginable and build a family of forward thinking, adventure-seeking, young professionals who unite under the banner of exploration and delight at the prospect of new connection.

We believe that good people make the world turn. The only thing better than skiing, is skiing with your best friends.
