The World Ski Awards focus on the leading 20 ski destinations who are shaping the future of this progressive industry. Whilst acknowledging and rewarding excellence across ski resorts and the ski hospitality sector, the World Ski Awards will ultimately strive to improve the ski tourist customer experience and energize both the domestic and international ski tourism markets.
The worldwide voting process began on Monday 26th August with votes being made by professionals working within the ski travel and tourism industry (senior executives, travel buyers, tour operators, agents and media professionals) Votes can also be submitted by the skiing public through a simple and easy to use Facebook log in process. The voting works on a first-past-the-post system to ensure fairness and independence. Votes are submitted online at World Ski Awards website until 13th October 2013.
