Thank you for visiting SkiTops, the leading membership organization for tour operators and suppliers in the mountain travel industry. Members return to SkiTops events year after year because of the inviting culture and the compelling value proposition.

Here are some of the main benefits of membership:


Tour Operator owners, general managers, travel managers and buyers. Tour Operator front line agents, trainers and copywriters.

Host Location

Events are held in mountain travel destinations with easy access to the slopes.

Host Hotels

Negotiated rates are available at host hotels and lodgings.

Time Commitment

There is one event per year in the Spring which does not overlap other spring industry events. Typical time away from the office is 4-business days including travel.


SkiTops gives back to each host by supporting adaptive ski and snowboard programs or athletes in each host community. Members are welcome to participate too.
