Welcome to Skifest

Skifest is a UK based ski club formed in 1996 by a group of like-minded friends skiing for pleasure in Europe and North America. Since its inception Skifest has grown to become one of the largest ski clubs of its kind in Europe, with more than 1200 members worldwide.

We are a non-profit making ski club and run by a group of volunteers dedicated to bringing the Skifest experience to the masses. We do not charge a membership fee to our members; we simply arrange group ski holidays via tour operators and pass the cost of the holiday directly on to those members who wish to attend our trips.  

Skifest's popularity has grown exponentially in-part because of our tremendous buying power, which enables us to negotiate substantial discounts with tour operators and therefore make skiing in some of the world's best resorts affordable to a wider market.

Please feel free to register and interact with your fellow Skifest members, upload your images, music and video's and chat online!!!

“We recognise and respect the decision taken by Sundhedsstyrelsen (health agency) in Denmark,” the company said in a statement, adding it was a matter for each country to decide over vaccination programmes based on local conditions.

But before shovels had even hit earth, they found someone else had got there first: the Romans.

Single Pfizer or AstraZeneca dose produces strong antibody response

Scientists say AstraZeneca vaccine has greater effect when it comes to cellular response

A single dose of either the Oxford/AstraZeneca or the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine generates a big protective antibody response against the coronavirus in people 80 and over, researchers have found.

The first study to look at the comparative performance of the two vaccines that have been in use in the UK in recent months shows that 93% of people develop antibodies against the coronavirus spike protein by five to six weeks after a single Pfizer jab, and 87% after a single AstraZeneca one.
