First Ski.com travel expiriance
Had an opportunity to go skiing with friends from school days. The vacation was kind of short notice, 3-4 weeks out. We attempted to plan the ski trip as we always do, covering as many details as possible. Needless to say time was ticking, all costs (airline, lodging, etc.) go up the closer we got to travel dates. In exasperation I tried Ski.com, we requested several quotes late one evening and I expected answers to come several days out. Happily by 10am (Colorado time) the next morning all four were in my inbox complete. The quotes were good for three days without pricing changes giving us the time to consider and find peace with quote #2. I would be remiss if I did not mention Katie (mountain adviser extraordinaire). Through a couple of simple emails we were able to finalize and secure the vacation. I am not going to tell you that we couldn’t beat their price, our early estimates on the trip were $50-$100 less than the lowest price on their quotes (if we didn’t miss something). I however am a pessimist so I was waiting for the other foot to fall, trust issues, I know. Flights were as advertised and boarding pass waiting on me. Ground transportation was there and expecting me. Lodging reserved (early check in as a courtesy). Lift tickets waiting at one of 5 places, wherever best fit my needs. Rental equipment waiting, and as good or better than I usually receive. Dining recommendations, activity suggestions, emergency contact numbers for all service providers as well as for Ski.com just in case I needed the heavy hitters (none of which were needed). Trip home was just as flawless. Earlier I mentioned we had their price beat, we are not exactly comparing apples to apples. The extra $50-$100 was easily justified in hot tubs, pool, sauna, full service hotel with restaurant and bar, curbside ground transportation, the list goes on. My highest recommendation is that I will be a return customer. No hassle, no headaches. Thanks Katie we will be talking to you soon !
