Snow-Camp launch the AJ Bell Courmayeur Classic fundraising challenge

Take on 5 snowsports challenges in 1 unique team event

The first ever ‘AJ Bell Courmayeur Classic in association with the City Ski Championships’ will take place from the 30th January to the 2nd February 2020!

Youth charity Snow-Camp are delighted to announce a brand-new team focused fundraising challenge for the coming winter season. The event will be held in the stunning Italian resort of Courmayeur, offering some of the very best skiing terrain in the Alps, set beneath the backdrop of the iconic Mont Blanc mountain range.

After 10 fantastic years delivering our annual Alpine Challenge event in Morzine, it was time for a change and new challenge. We wanted to retain the fun, the camaraderie, the healthy competition and the fantastic atmosphere of the Alpine Challenge, but with a completely new challenge in a new location which could inspire teams to get involved and help raise funds for Snow-Camp’s ongoing work with young people.

Andy Bell CEO of AJ Bell who is sponsoring the event once again said: “We are excited to once again support Snow-Camp’s biggest annual fundraiser and can’t wait to take part in the new event! The work Snow-Camp undertakes with young people is so important we want to do all we can to get behind Dan and the team. Events like this are great fun for everyone involved, and really help raise the profile and funds needed for Snow-Camp’s work.”

Over recent months we have been working closely with our partners the City Ski Championships and Momentum Ski, and the result is a unique and exciting event which brings together multiple snow focused activities under one challenge.

Over two action packed days, teams will undertake ski orienteering, laser biathlon, parallel slalom racing, a team distance challenge and a snow-shoe relay – with points earnt at each challenge. All points will then be added together to determine our winner!

Alongside the challenges, teams will enjoy wonderful Italian hospitality, superb food and the best après-ski in Courmayeur – ensuring the much-loved celebrations and parties of Snow-Camp’s previous winter events continue!

Also new this year is our exciting partnership with the City Ski Championships. Snow-Camp has been the charity partner of this prestigious annual event over the last 2 years, and we have greatly enjoyed working with Amin and his team at Momentum Ski who have been running the annual competition for City companies for over 20 years.

This year though, our collaboration has reached the next level, and we have joined forces to ensure both events run at the same time in the same resort – enabling Courmayeur Classic teams to enjoy a number of the on-snow and evening activities hosted by the City Ski Championships, and allowing teams of both events to meet, network, ski and celebrate together.

We are hoping the AJ Bell Courmayeur Classic will run for the next 10 years just like our Alpine Challenge did before it, so if you want to say you were at the first ever event you need to grab three skiing friends and get signed up! And even more importantly, you will be making a massive difference to the lives of young people supported by our charity. In the end, this is the reason we run these events – so please do support us in this new venture and join us for an unforgettable experience in Courmayeur this winter. Thank you!
