LEADING tour operator, Ski Independence, is offering winter sports fans the chance to win a free luxury skiing holiday worth over £20,000.

Says a spokesperson: “The Edinburgh-based independent tour operator has drawn on over 50 years of specialist expertise to craft the ultimate ski holiday for one lucky competition entrant. Steeped in five-star luxury, the all-expenses-paid trip to Canada’s renowned Whistler Blackcomb resort will also see the winner enjoy a VIP stay in one of Vancouver’s finest hotels during a ten-day adventure designed to provide the memories of a lifetime.”

Said Michael Bennett, managing director of Ski Independence: “After more than five decades in the business we know how to put together some of the best winter sports holidays available anywhere in the world.

“Creating great experiences is what we do, and when we decided to give away the ultimate ski break for free we knew that the fantastic Whistler resort had to be part of the package.”

The spokesperson adds: “Few resorts come close to competing with Whistler Blackcomb, host mountain resort to the 2010 Winter Olympics. A Ski Independence favourite, its over 8,000 acres of ski and snowboard terrain, 12 alpine bowls, three glaciers, 200 plus marked trails and an average annual snowfall of over 33 feet are complemented by hundreds of dining and après ski opportunities as well as a wide selection of shops, boutiques, art galleries and theatres.

“Travelling in style, the competition winner and a friend will fly to Canada in British Airways Club World (Business Class) seats and check in for seven nights at the five star luxury slope-side Fairmont Chateau Whistler.

“They’ll be given gratis lift tickets and equipment hire together with private ski or board lessons with an experienced Whistler Blackcomb instructor, dinner at a Whistler fine dining restaurant, complimentary entry to the Scandinave Spa, $500 to spend in resort and a snowmobiling and dinner for two at the Crystal Hut with Canadian Adventures.

“For the Vancouver leg of the trip the fortunate duo will spend three nights at the five star Fairmont Pacific Rim, their base for a remarkable city break that will include a chef-guided tour of the city’s Granville Island Market, a Snowshoeing excursion to Grouse Mountain and passes to many key attractions.

“In addition to dinner and high tea at two of the area’s best known eateries, they will also be provided with a $350 Gift card to spend at Vancouver’s Pacific Centre.”
