Silvretta Ski Safari

In the middle of April we at last launched our Silvretta Ski Safari after two years of Covid forced postponements. It was definitely worth the wait! The team enjoyed 4 fabulous days in the mountains, 3 nights in mountain huts and summited 3 peaks along the way. The sun shone throughout and views were sensational. …..

COP26 and skiing

With the COP26 summit taking place in Glasgow at the moment, focus is very much on our carbon footprint. As skiers, this is particularly pertinent as global warming is a significant threat to the snow and glaciers that make our wonderful sport possible. Switzerland being landlocked does not have the cooling influence of the sea …..

E-biking in Klosters, by James P-T

I was in Klosters for 2 weeks in August and decided to take the opportunity to try out an E-bike. For those unfamiliar with the concept, these are bikes which come with a rechargeable battery that give assistance when you pedal. I, together with my daughter India, hired E-mountain bikes for 3 days and they …..

Will winter travel be back to normal?

After a year of being glued to Grant Shapps’ twitter feed as he seemed to take countries on and off his travel ban list at random, it was a breath of fresh air when the traffic light system was announced in May. Finally, we thought a systematic (albeit still quite confusing) way to understand and …..

Is flying becoming more sustainable?

We are all very aware that flying is not the most ecological way to travel; however, it always comes up trumps for its speed and time efficiency compared to other methods. Want to be on the slopes by lunchtime? A plane makes it possible when you would still be speeding through the French countryside if …..

Skiers Cumbrian Cycle Challenge

Last winter was PT Ski’s 10th anniversary. To mark the occasion we thought that rather than celebrating with a party we would instead take the opportunity to fundraise for Snow-Camp, with the idea of raising enough to support 10 young people through their program. Snow-Camp has resonated with us ever since we first came across …..

The return of the picnic and other lunchtime adventures

The Swiss bucked the European trend and opted to keep its ski lifts open throughout the winter, much to the delight of the skiing community. Social distancing was put in place in lift queues, masks had to be worn on all lifts and there was a rule of 5 on the mountain. Additionally, and forcing …..

Night sledging on the Rinerhorn

Every cloud has a silver lining and with no guests in Klosters this winter we were able to try a few new things that we normally just don’t get the time to do. One of the highlights of this exploration was night skiing and sledging on the Rinerhorn, which takes place every Wednesday and Friday …..

P-T Summer holiday to Klosters

After several years of not having a summer holiday in Klosters we made a welcome return this August. We were blessed with amazing weather and the one gloomy day resulted in glorious snowy peaks the following morning. With limited travelling options we also found ourselves with all 4 children (now aged 18-23) which was a …..

Offsetting Carbon with ClimateCare

PT Ski is pleased to have partnered with ClimateCare to offset our carbon emissions from the season. As with all travel companies who operate out of a different country, we are conscious of the impact our staff travel causes as we go back and forth between London and Klosters throughout the season.   Over the season …..
