Skiers Accredited was born in Åre, Sweden. The beer was Hof. It was Maundy Thursday 2008, and the first sketches and ideas had been drawn on three serviettes before the ski boots were off. The basic idea, the feeling and the serviettes remain.
We currently operate in Sweden and Switzerland, with our HQ in Åre and our Alpine base in Davos Klosters. We will be expanding to more countries and mountains soon and in the years to come.
OUR CORE VALUES
We believe in development through awareness and want all skiers to achieve their full potential.
We develop individuals through deep respect for all skiers and their ongoing development. We believe that skiing, personal growth and joy provide maximum development.
We are a community with a family feeling that focuses on closeness, caring and empathy. We create spaces for contacts and meetings, so members can expand their networks throughout the global village.
Our objective is to become a global family of members, mentors and partners, with a 100% focus on the skier. Skiers are at the heart of our activities, and we give our all so they can achieve optimal development.
We must make conscious choices for the sake of everyone’s future. Sustainability permeate the whole of Skiers, emphasising skiers, the community, mentors, partners and the world.
Our mentors will develop continually, centred on the individual. They must learn from each other and push for progress. Dialogue, response and trust provide guidance on the way to maximal development.
THE ALPINE CITIZENS
We are The Alpine Citizens. The whole is bigger than the individual. The synergies found in these networks move beyond our boundaries. Together, we have chosen each other.

— Tobias Liljeroth

“It's hard to give a quick overview, but we are basically a ski community that has created to support anyone who wants to develop a deeper awareness of their skiing. They can then evolve in many aspects of the sport.”
