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 900 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!!!

The Guardian

Anna Wintour may settle for less, but I've grown out of bad coffee | Hannah Jane Parkinson

I used to drink copious amounts of Starbucks, but that was when I drank lattes, or, as my friend calls them, giant cups of milk

Saturday Guardian fans (my favourite people) may have read the brilliant interview with Anna Wintour in The Fashion supplement a few weekends ago. I am afraid I was disappointed by a certain reveal (and I use the word “reveal” loosely, as I was widely mocked by friends who said this was a well-known fact): Wintour drinks Starbucks coffee. Anna Wintour, the world’s chicest. Drinks Starbucks. Not the worst ever coffee, but a close second, behind Costa (it should be criminalised). In the same interview, Wintour talked about playing tennis with her good friend Roger Federer. Starbucks. You can see the discrepancy here.

Anyway, those friends responded with “duh” and an eye-roll when I mentioned this (had I never seen The Devil Wears Prada? Or The September Issue? I’ve seen both, but maybe I blocked the Starbucks cups from my mind).

Number of London youth clubs nearly halved since 2011 riots, report finds

A series of freedom of information requests shows the UK capital has lost 104 youth centres as austerity continues to grip councils

London has lost at least 100 youth centres since the 2011 riots, according to new figures.

The research, compiled from freedom of information (FOI) requests and shared exclusively with Guardian Cities ahead of publication later on Friday, shows the continued decline in youth service provision across the UK capital as austerity continues to grip local councils.

'Information isn't just for the elite': the academic turning research into hip-hop

Academic Martin Glynn on how setting information to a beat takes research out of the ivory tower and on to the streets

“I refer to much of academia as intellectual masturbation,” says Martin Glynn, criminology lecturer at Birmingham City University. He’s discussing the role of research and how its results are rarely heard outside of academic circles. “In this respect, it exists only to serve – to please – those within academia.”

This poses a particular problem when the focus of the research concerns disaffected communities in Britain who have no access to the data that concerns their lives.

Dirty lies: how the car industry hid the truth about diesel emissions

The ‘Dieselgate’ scandal was suppressed for years – while we should have been driving electric cars. By Beth Gardiner

John German had not been looking to make a splash when he commissioned an examination of pollution from diesel cars back in 2013. The exam compared what came out of their exhausts, during the lab tests that were required by law, with emissions on the road under real driving conditions. German and his colleagues at the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) in the US just wanted to tie up the last loose ends in a big report, and thought the research would give them something positive to say about diesel. They might even be able to offer tips to Europe from the US’s experience in getting the dirty fuel to run a little cleaner.

But that was not how it turned out. They chose a Volkswagen Jetta as their first test subject, and a VW Passat next. Regulators in California agreed to do the routine certification test for them, and the council hired researchers from West Virginia University to then drive the same cars through cities, along highways and into the mountains, using equipment that tests emissions straight from the cars’ exhausts.
