Our History
We have been providing ski holidays to the South African skier since 1995 making it our goal to be the leading specialist ski operator.

In 2017 we were purchased by Tourvest Destination Management, giving us further credibility and buying power to give the best possible price to the end user. Our goal has always been to share our knowledge and experience with our clients in assisting them to have the ski holiday of a lifetime.

Local is Lekker

During our high season periods we have on-site South African representatives that know their respective resorts inside and out, from the most secluded mountain huts to the best beginner slopes and liveliest après ski bars we're here to ensure you don’t miss a thing. We also run weekly entertainment programmes with dinner at different  venues and fun activities like snowmobiling, tobogganing, ski bobbing and so much more.

  • Just returned from another fantastic Ski holiday to St Johann, Austria with the Pure skiing group! And I have to commend you and your team for your top class service and professionalism from start to finish! From the start Charlene was very helpful with all the different quote options to eventually booking the right resort and dates for myself, sister and mum! I am definitely hooked on skiing and love everything Pureskiing have to offer their clients!

  • After all the planning and excitement, the trip passed way too quickly! Thank you for everything, it was one of the most enjoying and memorable vacations in my life. The hotels were great, there was no problem with the vouchers, mostly they never even took it. The only small problem was getting on a flight to Ushuaia, we had to go on standby, but got on the first flight out. LAN were superb! Thank you for walking the extra mile with us, I really appreciate your wonderful service.
