Ski Safari Step Up for Snow Camp Once Again

Long-term friends of Snow Camp, Ski Safari, have generously donated £20,000 in celebration of the 23/24 winter season.

Based just down the road from our head office in Brighton, Snow Camp have always considered our relationship with Ski Safari to be extremely special.

From Ski Safari’s initial support back in 2016 to support our work with young people in Bristol, to their multi-year support package that followed to increase our impact across the UK, Ski Safari have been with us every step of the way – proudly working together to impact as many underprivileged young people as possible nationally. Please read about Ski Safari’s existing support here.

With the challenges of the pandemic understandably putting a pause on proceedings, both organisations are now proudly celebrating Ski Safari’s new and incredibly generous donation of £20,000 to Snow Camp in celebration of a landmark 23/24 winter season for both of us.

Maggie Jago, Ski Safari Finance Controller said – “We are so pleased to be able to support Snow Camp again now that our business is back to strength after the pandemic. The pandemic has made it clear that Snow Camp’s work is more important than ever, and this shone through when young people at Snow Camp’s 20th Anniversary Charity Ball in October spoke of their personal experience of being involved with the charity – the word they used most commonly was ‘transformational’. We are extremely proud to be a part of Snow Camp’s life-changing work once again.”

Dan Keeley, Partnerships and Community Manager said – “We couldn’t be more grateful or delighted to be working so closely with Ski Safari once again. Being based just 10 minutes from our central office here in Brighton, we’ve always regarded our partnership to be extremely special; underpinned by our shared passion for creating positive change for young people less fortunate right across the UK. To all the Ski Safari team and everyone involved in driving our partnership forward in this new chapter for both of us, thank you!”

Ski Safari’s funding will once again directly impact the lives of young people less fortunate who simply wouldn’t have access to snowsports or the mountain environment otherwise, or the life skills, qualifications and positive pathways Snow Camp provide. We look forward to keeping both our communities up to date with this impact as the 24/25 Snow Camp year progresses.

Snow Camp would also like to acknowledge & celebrate Ski Safari’s 28th anniversary as of May 2024. Richard Rice and his wife Samantha first started Ski Safari in 1996 at their kitchen table, offering a handful of trips to resorts in Western Canada, all of which are still available to book today!

To see how far Ski Safari have come since then – with multiple awards for their customer service across their extensive range of tailor-made ski holidays – is remarkable, with full credit to the passion and commitment to all the team involved.

To everyone at Ski Safari, we couldn’t be more grateful for your support, and we look forward to many more years of shared impact together.
