Skistar, a 20 year relationship
We’ve had the privilege of working with SkiStar since 1998. It has been an exciting journey where SkiStar’s digital presence has evolved from an informative website to inspiration, booking platform and interactive story telling with VR.
Did you know that Skistar.com was named travel site of the year by Internet world!
How do you increase presale on web from 2% to over 80%?
By building the platform for the user. Today, skistar.com is the primary sales channel with a revenue of over 800 million. The presale leap is mostly due to the fact that the platform enables the visitor to book their entire winter holiday in one place. Everything form booking ski school, equipment, accommodation, transport to being able to buy clothes, tickets, ordering bags of groceries to the cabin and much more. And of course you can make changes during your stay by logging in to your page.
Our team works integrally with their organization to be able to quickly launch improvements and new features. We are a part of their company just like they are a part of ours.
SkiStar and the Alpine World Cup organization wanted to give us mortals a chance to test a real ride. During a real race. In the real World Cup. As an activation for the World Cup in Åre 2019, we produced a VR experience where people got to test breathtaking Super-G or technical slalom, no matter your choosing you get a memorable experience.
We have created the ultimate experience for visitors to SkiStar’s destinations. The app is filled with useful and fun features. The app is not just a source of current information about lifts, slopes and weather, but also offers interactivity in an innovative way. By connecting the ski pass you can keep track of your statistics and compare/compete with friends and family how much skiing you have done during a day, week or throughout the season. It is also possible to create or adopt challenges and share experiences in social media. On “my page” there are, among other things, bookings and travel statistics.
