Extensive research needed: no Extra notes: Background to the project: Who are we? The business was born in 2012 from a rickety chalet in the Alps, on a mission to power your adventures, support local businesses and protect the planet’s most inspiring natural environments. We’re creating the world’s best platform for the simple discovery and booking of active holidays, delivered by a community of locally and independently owned businesses in the world’s adventure hot-spots. Local businesses are the secret to all the best trips - they are bursting with inside knowledge and a passion for sharing their favourite spots to ride, climb, surf or ski. Even better, growing the local adventure economy creates a virtuous circle, with local communities incentivised to protect the amazing environments which attracted these visitors in the first place. Fast forward to 2017, and you can now compare and book over 2,000 ski holidays in over 50 destinations across Europe, or jump on to a hand-picked collection of 100+ epic weekends. 90,000+ nights have been booked, with customers leaving 5 star reviews. We are now expanding our range of adventure based trips to the world’s wildest places, starting with some great destinations in Asia. What’s the Challenge? High quality content is central to our mission. To create a super pleasurable booking experience, every trip we sell needs to be carefully written up using a consistent format and expert attention to detail. As the number of local suppliers and volume of trips we offer expands, so to does our need for reliable writers to help us edit and load these trips to make them available to customers. That’s where you come in :)
