SnowTrex, specialist tour operator for ski holidays, continues its internationalisation. Previous winter the company initially launched the Russian sales website. The feedback was highly positive and with these results the offer will be expanded for the coming winter season.

SnowTrex has been internationalising consequently for some years now. Besides the websites and sales channels for Western Europe, there are further Internet pages for the countries Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. During the past winter season www.snowtrex.ru  was initially launched to web – successfully. Kathrin Lösgen, SnowTrex Marketing Director, explains: “The Russian website not only generates bookings from Russia, but also from other countries, such as the Ukraine and Lithuania.” Exact figures are withheld, due to competitive reasons.

The company is highly satisfied with the successful testing of the Russian Internet page: “Our Russian website has started as a real success. For this coming winter season we will be having two Russian native speakers in our customer service centre”, reports Mrs Lösgen. Including the Russian website, the Cologne-based company now offers winter sports holidays sold in 16 languages.
