About us

We are WhoSki.com, the UK’s peer-to-peer marketplace for buying and selling pre-owned ski and snowboard clothing. It is our goal to promote sustainability in the wintersports sector and reduce the amount of clothing that goes into landfill. 

The WhoSki.com marketplace
Ever wished you could update your ski look more often? Wanted to refresh your on-piste style but couldn’t justify a new outfit because your current one is far from worn out? Found yourself stuck with a pile of good-as-new kids’ wintersports clothing they’ve outgrown but not outworn?
WhoSki.com is the place to sell your no-longer-wanted ski and snowboard clothing, and refresh your mountain wardrobe at prices that mean you can get a quality new look at low prices without fast fashion guilt.
Via our online marketplace, you can help keep textiles out of landfill and in circulation, PLUS we give 25% of our commission on every sale to the teenage mental health charity stem4.

Be part of the sustainable fashion revolution. Ski in style. Save money (and the planet). Join the circular economy.
#PassItOn

Our charity partner
We donate 25% of our commission on every sale to award-winning teenage mental health charity stem4.
Partnering with stem4 is our way of supporting a charity which helps teenagers access positive mental health support easily and through their phones. Every item you buy or sell through WhoSki.com directs a charitable donation to this important cause.

#SkiGreen Directory
We are making it easier for wintersports fans to think green, reduce carbon footprint on the piste and lend support to resorts and businesses that are doing the right thing for the mountains.
Check our #SkiGreen Directory of businesses operating in the wintersports sector before you book your next trip or buy your next piece of kit.

As a sustainability brand, WhoSki.com regularly attends and participates in workshops, seminars and events. We are always happy to discuss possible joint initiatives in the sustainability, circular economy and #SkiGreen sectors. 

Sustainability
“Globally, most used textiles end up in landfill. Such poor waste management leads to a loss of the value in the material and takes up landfill space, which costs money and is scarce in many countries.”
The Ellen Macarthur Foundation

The fashion industry is in the spotlight due to the wasteful nature of current practices. Brands are increasingly aware of the need to adopt a more sustainable approach. 
That’s why rising numbers of fashion brands are starting to encourage customers to pass on clothing they no longer want or need: promoting re-use and recycling via what has become known as the circular economy.
As a consumer, it means clearing out your wardrobe and passing on the items that you’re finished with. They’re no longer of use to you, but may be exactly what someone else is looking for.
 
The WhoSki.com team

We are Sally and Nicola, WhoSki.com co-founders, passionate about the #SkiGreen and sustainable fashion movements.



Our motivation for setting up the WhoSki.com peer-to-peer marketplace? We LOVE skiing. We LOVE looking good on the slopes. 

But we have become increasingly concerned about the environmental impact of winter sports. In particular,  the immense footprint of the clothing and textiles industry: the world’s second most polluting sector after oil.

As parents, we have accumulated and passed on shedloads – literally – of our children’s pre-loved but outgrown ski clothing. Charity shops find it hard to shift specialised donations, so odds are that unless snowboots and salopettes go to friends or family, they will end up in landfill. 

WhoSki.com exists to help keep these high-value, durable items in circulation. At the same time, we aim to make it easier and cheaper to update your own on-piste style so we can all look good on the slopes for less - guilt-free.

Please get in touch if you’d like to know more or have ideas about how we can expand our reach to promote the #SkiGreen message.
