Snow-Camp End of Season Challenge, 2019

In April 2019 our ski season staff embarked on the inaugural End of Season Challenge in association with Snow-Camp, our snowsports charity partner. In what we hope will become an annual event, our 350 staff set out in their resort teams to ski and snowboard a collective 16,000 kilometres in just a single day, joining forces across resorts in France, Austria, Switzerland and even the USA.

What does the Snow-Camp charity do?

We set each staff member a challenge to raise as much money as they could before the event, all proceeds going to Snow-Camp. The charity's mission is to help underprivileged inner-city young people discover new opportunities, a passion and potentially a vocation in the snow-sports industry. It’s a truly wonderful organisation with a clear and concise vision for making a real difference.

How much did our teams raise?

We’re immensely proud to report that the support for this event thanks to generous donations raised more than £3,570! The stand-out performers in terms of fundraising was our team in Val Thorens who alone raised £2,280 – a super-human effort! A huge thank-you should go to our partners at who donated a £250 prize voucher to the seasonnaires who contributed the most to the fundraising efforts – Jimi and Tanya being the happy recipients.

How will the fundraising money be spent?

With all the generous donations from our guests throughout the ski season, as well as the End of Season Challenge, Skiworld managed to raise a total of £15,000 for Snow-Camp in 2018/19. Skiworld are immensely proud to be helping turn around the lives of 100 young people who will be able to start their journey into snow-sports on Snow-Camp’s 2-day Beginner programme this summer. In addition, two £2,500 bursaries are being offered to two young people with great potential, to embark on Snow-Camp’s 10-week Advanced programme, culminating in a Snow Sport England Level 1 Instructor qualification.

What's next for Skiworld and Snow-Camp?

We want to take this opportunity to thank all our staff and any of our guests who’ve donated any amount of time, effort or money to Snow-Camp’s cause this year. 2019/20 will be bigger and better, with more ideas in the pipeline already. You can stay updated via our Snow-Camp page on the website during the coming winter.

In the meantime, the soon-to-be announced bursary winners will be sharing their story with us each month in an exclusive Snow-Camp Diary, right here on the Skiworld website. Check back to follow their story, or keep an eye on your inbox for the Skiworld eNewsletter where we’ll be announcing each new diary entry…
