As an extension of the company’s popular City-to-City service, Blacklane now offers 33 City-to-Slopes routes globally, including eight in Switzerland, seven across the US, six in France and six in Germany

16th January 2024: Blacklane, the leading global chauffeur service dedicated to safety, sustainability, and stress-free travel, is thrilled to announce the launch of its global City-to-Slopes service, an extension of the company’s popular City-to-City service, which provides travellers with a seamless way to move between metropolitan cities. With a total of 33 new routes across France, Germany, Switzerland, Canada, and the U.S., the service will take customers directly to major ski destinations such as Aspen, Kitzbühel, Val Thorens, and more.

Blacklane recently conducted a survey across the UK, US and Germany that found the majority of British (91 per cent), American (87 per cent) and German (85 per cent) skiers say it’s important their ski holiday starts with stress-free travel. The group were also in agreement that they would be willing to spend extra on comfort when going on holiday.

As well as revealing what makes the perfect ski holiday, the poll revealed big queues and waiting around in the cold as the most most stressful aspect when heading away on a winter getaway, with Germans leading the charge (44 per cent), closely followed by the Brits (35 per cent) and Americans (33 per cent).

With Blacklane’s new City-to-Slopes routes, passengers can now travel in a premium vehicle with peace of mind that every ride is carbon offset and that vehicles come winter-ready with snow tires and chains, ensuring warmth and comfort throughout the journey. In addition, door-to-door rides mean no waiting in lines or switching between modes of transportation, and customers can choose the pickup time, with the flexibility to cancel up to one hour before your ride.

Additional benefits include:

  • Fixed fares: The price for your route is the same no matter where within the city limits or ski resort your ride starts/finishes.
  • Competitive rates: Taxes and tolls are included, you pay per car instead of per seat, and the only luggage limit is trunk space.
  • Reliable pickups: With our long-distance car service you don’t have to worry about strikes, short-staffing, or crowds.
  • En route entertainment: With Wi-Fi available in most vehicles, you can stream movies on the drive.

Dr. Jens Wohltorf, CEO and Founder of Blacklane, said: *“Ski holidays shouldn’t have to be stressful - it’s a great time to relax and one of the most magical trips you can go on. Introducing our City-to-Slopes routes means that skiers and winter vacationers can make the most of their holidays in style, arriving at their destination safely and on time thanks to our trained professional chauffeurs. We are committed to providing top-tier transportation solutions to our global clientele for every use case.” * Blacklane prides itself on offering the best service where passengers can relax, work, or simply enjoy the scenic views along the way. Customers can select the right car for their journey, from an SUV to fit their ski and snowboarding equipment to Blacklane’s Business or First Class vehicles - whatever travellers need to make their journey to the winter wonderland with peace of mind.
