Crystal Ski Travel Shops opening in Braehead and Castleford Snow Centres with exclusive offers

As we fast approach the beginning of 2011-12 ski season, this week has seen the opening of two new Travel Shops; one in Braehead, Glasgow and one in Castleford (less than half an hour by car from Leeds). 

Back in May we announced news that Crystal Ski’s first travel shop was opening in Manchester at the Chill Factore.

Now Crystal are delighted to announce a third and fourth opening of their travel shops this week, with Braehead in Glasgow opening earlier this week on Tuesday (6th December) and Castleford opening today, 8th December.

The Travel Pods will be there to provide information and advice on ski and snowboard holidays for both the 2011/12 and 2012/13 ski seasons. There are thousands of fantastic value holidays still available for this winter, as well as Travel Pod exclusive offers when you book your ski holiday for next season. More about these offers later in this post.

Sharon Smith of Crystal Ski says “It’s great that we’ve got Crystal Pods opening in two more snow centres. The combination of convenient opening hours and experienced staff, many of whom have worked overseas, is something that customers have found really useful at both Manchester and Hemel Hempstead.”
