Oli Dannatt, founder of SkiYodl, said: “Following a hugely successful 2022/23 season, expanding our reach into Switzerland was a natural step for us and one which we know our customers have been eagerly anticipating.
“The addition of these new locations underpins SkiYodl’s continued growth and commitment bringing yet more ultra-authentic ski holiday experiences to British skiers.”
SkiYodl enables skiers to connect with ‘fixers’, who have “in-depth local knowledge” for concierge style local recommendations, restaurant/experience bookings, for a “unique, ultra-authentic experience”.

SkiYodl plans to develop its technology and use of AI and to expand its marketplace to incorporate more local businesses and services in-resort.
It will also build uponthe number of properties and locations offered, as well as to launch its first hand-picked hotels and a summer product in the Alps.
The company said long-term plans will see SkiYodl expand into further European resorts as well as enter the North American market.
