- Olympic skier Chemmy Alcott joins Alto.Ski and states, ‘it’s the future of lift passes’

Olympic skier and Great Britain’s most successful female downhill ski racer, Chemmy Alcott, has joined the British ski technology company Alto.Ski, comparing the experience to using the Oyster card in London.
The four times Winter Olympian, seven times World Championship skier and seven times overall British champion skier has endorsed Alto.Ski and understands the benefits of having a ‘pay-as-you-go’ lift pass that saves money, time, and hassle, so skiers and snowboarders can get on the mountain faster.

The company has also launched its service with a new wooden lift pass that skiers can keep time and time again. This seriously reduces plastic waste and means you just need one pass for every ski trip.
The Alto.Ski app also delivers a whole host of other benefits through its strong partnerships including ski and snowboard rental through Europe’s number one network, Skiset. Convenient ski insurance is also just one button away.
“I’m so excited to come on board with Alto.Ski, I feel it’s the future of lift passes. When the world is moving at such a crazy pace and we are working so hard, we have seen a rise of the spontaneous traveller. That spontaneous traveller wants to find a destination to go skiing at, be there and on the slopes. They don’t want to faff around with lift queues and logistics. It will be like the Oyster card in London. Imagine if a few destinations in London had said no to the Oyster card, I can guarantee no one would go there. The Oyster card makes travelling in London ridiculously easy, you hop on you hop off and you’re there, that is what we are trying to provide for the mountains. I think Alto.Ski is an incredible innovation, it’s going to make life easier, so we can spend more time on the slopes and less time on the computer”.
– Chemmy Alcott
