As the winter season is starting early this year as a greater amount of people are booking wintersports holidays, we wondered what our customers thought of safety gear whilst on the slopes. Therefore we decided to ask them in return for entering them in to a prize draw to win a £50 Experience Days voucher.
Skiing and snowboarding are popular choices for a fun-filled winter holiday; however accidents are unfortunately all too common on the slopes. Following on from the news of Michael Schumacher's skiing accident in December 2013 as well as the death of Natasha Richardson in 2009, more and more people are deciding to wear all the necessary protective gear to help avoid any potential injuries.
The voucher itself can be used for a wide variety of different things, such as a driving experience, paragliding, zorbing or a spa day if you fancy some rest and relaxation. We had a great response and our chosen winner was Matt Keyworth, 26, from Worchestershire!
"œWow! I'm really pleased to have won, can't quite believe it as I never normally win things like this (haha!). My hobbies include football, skiing and backpacking so you could say I'm a bit of an adventure enthusiast. My friends and family are all very jealous but I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to spend it on yet. I was thinking one of the driving experiences because I've never done anything like that before but there's so much to choose from. Cheers Alpha!"
Thank you to all that took part in the winter sports survey and we hope that Matt enjoys his prize - Congratulations!
