At Ski Flight Free we have been promoting train travel to the Alps over flying for years, so it was hugely encouraging to see a genuine increased level of interest at the shows at Birmingham and London during National Snow Week.

Iain Martin, founder of Ski Flight Free, was invited to lead a panel at each show and was joined by different guests to share their knowledge with the audience. Both sessions were very well attended with plenty of questions for the panellists.
