Snowcarbon is an independent website dedicated to helping skiers and snowboarders reach ski resorts by train from the UK. Founded by two travel journalists, Daniel Elkan and Mark Hodson, it pulls together all the information needed in one easy-to-use resource. The site has a wide choice of great ski resorts, each convenient by train, with journey details, booking guides and booking forms. The snowcarbon philosophy of enjoyable, low-carbon travel is one that they believe will benefit skiers, snowboarders and the entire winter sports industry. They aim to be a catalyst for change, encouraging and co-coordinating travel improvements to make rail journeys to ski resorts ever more convenient.

They offer a seamless online interface to book travel and have 100s of travellers who use their website each year resulting in significant carbon reduction. Over 95% of the customers who use SnowCarbon are committed to preserving ski resorts and are environmentally conscious travellers. For more information see www.snowcarbon.co.uk.

"The business support provided by Centa has been instrumental in our progress. They helped make sure that our carbon reduction strategy was built on solid foundations rather than assumptions. The carbon reduction assessment has ensured that we lead by example and set the standard that we ascribe others to follow to help ensure the long term future of ski resorts throughout Europe". Daniel Elkan, Snowcarbon Co-founder.
