The Q&A will take place between 3pm to 4pm (GMT), and we are delighted to have an expert panel on board to help us. The panel includes:

The Ski Club of Great Britain

So if you’re planning on hitting the slopes this season then this is the perfect opportunity to quiz our expert panel on anything from which equipment you’ll need and what your insurance needs to cover, to how best to stay safe while on and off the piste.
