Ski circuits at Outdooractive: How to guide your guests through their ski vacation

Ski resorts are prominent destinations in winter tourism. They unite the touristic infrastructure of a destination: cableways, restaurants, hotels and other offers for guests. In general, a region and all surrounding ski schools and hotels benefit from the advantages of a ski resort.

As Christoph Engel impressively points out in his essay “Die Zukunft des Wintersports” [The future of winter sports] winter vacations are no longer solely ski vacations. The mere up and down on the same lifts and slopes is now overshadowed by the entire winter experience of a destination – from white and glittering mountain landscapes to cozy nights in front of a crackling fireplace.

All guests want to experience the most beautiful aspects of a winter sport destination. Thus, recommendations by regional experts are essential. Our tour type “Ski Circuit” helps you to present the highlights of your ski region and your personal tips and recommendations in an impressive manner. A ski circuit integrates the best slopes, the most comfortable cableways, die coziest ski huts and the most spectacular viewpoints of a ski resort – and all of that in just one circuit that is manageable in one day! A perfect example is the world-famous Sellaronda: the circuit leads only on slopes and lifts around the Sella massif in the Dolomites connecting four ski resorts.

Ski Circuits are a good possibilities, especially for partners like hotels, to present individual tips for a ski vacation appealingly. All requested POI can be linked to the tour – just as we know from different tour types. Furthermore, information on weather conditions and current avalanche reports complement the tour. You can also link the tour with the relevant ski resort entry on Outdooractive that provides the guest with even more information.

Once the tour is created it can easily be embedded into your website with help of the practical Tour2Go-Widget – free of charge and with just a few clicks. This way your existing web presence can simply be expanded by useful touring tips and inspiration for your guests.
