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!!!

Elimination: what New Zealand's coronavirus response can teach the world | Michael Baker and Nick Wilson

New Zealand’s drive against Covid-19 is showing promise and it is not too late for other countries to follow

Epidemiologists love to evoke the memory of John Snow, who famously advocated removing the handle from the Broad Street pump in London, an action that helped to end a severe outbreak of cholera. In the face of the Covid-19 pandemic we need to take the same kind of decisive action, yet western countries have appeared remarkably slow to do so, despite the advantages of immense scientific knowledge and modern tools of pandemic control.

New Zealand now appears to be the only “western” nation following an articulated elimination strategy with the goal of completely ending transmission of Covid-19 within its borders. The strategy appears to be working, with new case numbers falling. Most cases are now returning travellers, who are safely quarantined at the borders, and the few remaining case clusters in the community are being traced and further spread stamped out. But it is far too soon to claim victory, and the country is remaining under an intense lockdown to support the elimination effort.

The grim milestone came as New York City officials hired contract laborers to bury the rising number of dead in its potter’s field on Hart Island, an area which has for decades been used to bury those with no known next of kin.

Lifting the lockdown: what are the UK's options?

Life is unlikely to return to normal overnight even once the battle against the virus is won, but several gradual approaches have been suggested

While ministers and their medical advisers refuse to be drawn on an exit strategy from the UK lockdown, discussions are under way in Whitehall to explore how a graduated return to work could soften the economic blow while avoiding an upsurge in deaths from the virus. What options are available?
