About us

Where to Ski and Snowboard was Britain’s market-leading ski resort guidebook, published from 1994 to 2015, and this is the complementary website. Where to Ski and Snowboard 2016 was the 20th and last edition.

The editors of Where to Ski and Snowboard were Chris Gill and Dave Watts, who met working as writers at Consumers’ Association: Chris became editor of Holiday Which? and Dave became editor of Which? itself. Hence, a consumerist attitude comes naturally. In his final years at CA, Chris formulated and edited the first edition of the seminal Good Skiing Guide – the original warts-and-all guide to ski resorts. He continued to edit that book until he and Dave launched Where to Ski and Snowboard. The Good Skiing and Snowboarding Guide (as it became) ceased publication many years ago, and all other attempts to establish a competitor to Where to Ski and Snowboard failed.

We have now entered a new era. Chris and Dave are collaborating in the production of a new series of smaller guidebooks, not revised annually. Chris is acting as editor of the series, supported by Dave as consultant editor.

The first book in the new series, Where to Ski in Austria is being published in late October 2017. You can learn more about the book and buy copies at a discount on this page.

This site contains some information from Where to Ski and Snowboard and is still updated annually.
