About

Carrie and Kirsty grew up in the mountains (Southern Germany for Carrie, Switzerland for Kirsty) and both forged a career in the UK snowsports and high-end travel industries, working for the Ski Club of Great Britain, PURE Life Experiences and British Ski & Snowboard, Ski Solutions respectively. After recognising a gap in the market for a focused ski marketing representation company, they set up CK Ski, offering services to clients keen to attract the snowsports lover in Hong Kong and further afield in Asia.
