I have had the honour of working closely with Merit Travel through the 2 most tumultuous ski seasons in recent history. The constant availability of their agents, and steadfastness during unsteady times set them apart from other companies. I am beyond grateful for the experiences my groups enjoyed and relationships I’ve gained as a client of Merit Travel.



Merit Travel has always been my go-to ski vacation and travel company for the last 15 plus years. Paul and his trip leaders have always provided my ski and snowboard friends a fun, relaxed, well organized great time at a great price while skiing and snowboarding abroad. I have met many new friends over the years and will continue to travel with Merit Travel in the future. Let it snow. Cheers.
