The Ski Week brand and concept is owned by European Travel Ventures - a private limited company registered in Stockholm, Sweden and the head office is in London, UK.
The Yacht Week was founded in 2006 by two Swedish students, Erik Biörklund and William Wenkel. They decided to challenge and rejuvenate the traditional yachting market. Typically regarded as a sport for the retired, they brought forth the concept of young, fun, affordable sailing.
The pair intend to open up sailing holidays to new markets and audiences and make it acessible to holidaymakers who have never considered sailing before, much as skiing became popular in 1970s.
The company has more than 950 yachts (for 2013 they forecast booking over 1200 yachts for people from over 40 countries) for hire in Thailand, Croatia, Greece, Italy and British Virgin Islands.
Customers can either crew themselves or bring aboard a licensed sailing captain provided by the company. The captain will be experienced and keep you safe and on course throughout the week.
Following the steps of the Yacht Week, the company will launch in March 2014 the Ski Week. European Travel Ventures want to create the ultimate winter event. It will be a week filled with skiing, music, parties and guests from all over the world. Every day will be exceptional, every night something magical.
"The Ski Week aims to become the leading brand and trendsetter within the skiing industry. From our success with The Yacht Week we will create a social event with many opportunities for guests to meet new friends, go skiing in the best resorts and attend exclusive parties".
