Victoria Bacon, head of communications at Abta, said: "For many of our members the winter sports market is an important part of their business and these activities will help educate consumers about the advantages of booking with an Abta member in an inspiring and fun way. We also want to make sure those going away are fully prepared to enjoy their ski trip as that helps our members ensure their customers have a safe and happy holiday."
