The business management platform for ski centres

by Daniel Steele

Running a ski centre means juggling a number of complex issues. Everything takes time, from managing bookings and payments across a wide range of activities and skill levels, to managing resources and dealing with cancellations.

We built eola based on conversations and feedback we've gotten from ski centres and similar businesses to help make these processes simple and streamlined. Our mission is to make it easy to manage day-to-day admin via one beautifully simple platform. 

“Eola has cut down our paperwork massively. It’s such an easy platform to use - we’re very pleased that we made the move.”

Clive Marshall, Business Manager, Alpine Snowsports Aldershot & Southampton

From solo enthusiasts to families and large groups, the needs of your customers vary. With eola, you can customise your offering to cater to them all:

  • Automate discounts for large groups
  • Set different prices for children and adults
  • Offer multi-session passes for returning enthusiasts
  • Sell credit and activity vouchers
  • Make activities optionally exclusive for private bookings

Take payments automatically, 24/7

Over half of all bookings come outside of working hours. With eola, there’s no need to man the phones - you can take payments through your existing website, straight away.

Review your calendar at a glance

The eola calendar lets you easily manage all your ski centre’s bookings day-to-day. Colour coding allows you to monitor activity capacity at a glance, and you can add useful notes such as doctor’s appointments or staff holidays directly.
