Winter Insight is the new home for winter sports and is the creation of Keith Marshall, founder of Sports Insight, & James Clark, experienced winter brand manager. By combining Keith’s extensive media & trade knowledge with James’ contacts & passion for all things winter, Winter Insight was born. Our goal is to bring you unbiased news, reviews & insights from across the world of winter sports.
We wanted to create a channel that brings together all parts of the winter industry. We found too much of a divide between trade & consumer with the retailer as the middle ground. We want brands & consumers to interact more with content, while using retailers as the specialists they are to ensure you get the best kit fitted & serviced in the best way possible. Then we throw in athlete news & gear reviews to inspire & motivate us to get out into the mountains. Through channels like the SIGB (Ski Industries of Great Britain) & The Ski Club of Great Britain (consumer focussed membership) we hope to bring these two parts of the industry closer together with retailers as the masters of selection & expertise.
You’ll regularly find Keith out on his mountain bike or camping in the woods. Keith is a real outdoor type & thoroughly enjoys giving winter kit a true test in the elements. If not outside, Keith will be at his computer or in a quiet corner of the pub with a good beer. James is a ski bum at heart, but after leaving Chamonix at 21 he started in sales & currently runs ODLO across the UK/BeNe market. Alongside some consultancy, James ‘works to live’ which mostly funds his regular winter trips with his wife & 4 children.

Our purpose is to bring all you all things winter & to raise the profile of winter sports globally. We want to increase participation in winter sports to help raise the profile of the greatest season of the year!
