A recent survey has found that despite the current COVID-19 pandemic, 96% of skiers who skied last season want to ski again next year.

According to The Ski Club of Great Britain’s 8th SCGB Consumer Research Survey (which recorded 19,000 responses), over 96% of the respondents who skied last season (13,989 people) said they would go skiing next season, with 4% of the remaining 5% saying they would book the following year instead.

Evidently, though many are unsure about the COVID-19 situation, there remains a desire amongst skiers to hit the slopes this winter.

Interestingly, the survey also found that of the 2,983 people whose ski holidays were affected last season, over 98% wish to go skiing again next season.

In terms of where skiers are planning to go, France looks set to remain the most popular ski destination, with 40% of respondents saying they visited French ski resorts last season. Austria was the next most popular, at 19%, followed by Italy at 11%, Switzerland at 5% and Canada at 4%.
