The City Ski Championships weekend, which took place from February 1st-4th, provided Europe‘s business and financial community with an opportunity to network and entertain clients in a personal, fun and relaxed environment, in the midst of exciting ski racing. It was fantastic to see former Snow-Camp young person, Jonjoe competing in the Saturday’s race with commentary from Snow-Camp Patron Chemmy Alcott – video below!
For the first time, we introduced the Snow-Camp Team Distance Challenge to the City Ski Championships Friday schedule. 10 teams of 4 received a top of the range GPS tracker and were tasked with completing the most km’s as possible over a 2-hour period. They could take any route you liked and use any strategy to maximize distance – the only rule was that they had to be on either foot, ski’s or lifts and always together as a team! A big thank you to everyone who took part including Snow-Camp Patrons, Chemmy Alcott and Graham Bell. Congratulations to winners Wilcox Warriors, closely followed by Knight Frank 1 and Oliver’s Dodgers.
City Ski Championship guests were also given a sneak preview to our brand new #Switch180 campaign, where we gained support from F1 Champion and legend Damon Hill.
Snow-Camp Founder Dan Charlish said: “The partnership with Momentum Ski has been fantastic for Snow-Camp and has come at a key time as we launch our new campaign #Switch180. It was great to have two former Snow-Camp young people, Jonjoe and Laquan involved too representing Snow-Camp and the Warren Smith Academy. The City Ski Championships is a prestigious event in the snowsports calendar and to be named as Charity Partner was a real honour.”
Momentum Ski have also set up a fundraising page, where supporters and attendees of the Championships can donate to support Snow-Camp’s work. Please find more information here.
