World ski awards

Best transfer operator in the world

Mountain Rescue have been nominated in the 2015 World Ski Awards as Best Transfer Operator. We are of course very excited and hope that our customers and affiliates can help us become holders of this exciting title.


The World Ski award is the only global initiative to recognize ski tourism and celebrate it with its own award ceremony. This year the three day programme will see the Ski tourism market leaders go head to head.


The ceremony itself will be held in Kitzbuhel, Austria on the 20th of Novmeber. We are hoping that Mountain Rescue will be there to claim 1st place in our category.
