The Ski Solutions 'Make a Wish' Ski Challenge moves to Champoluc next year from 14th – 17th March, 2013.
The inaugural charity fund-raising event launched last year and staged at another Aosta Valley resort, Courmayeur, will quadruple in size this season, with a target of 80 participants aiming to raise over £60,000 between them for Make a Wish.
The aim of the event is to clock up as many vertical metres as you can during the weekend win teams of two or three. Last year's event saw the winning team reaching 150% of the target 43,314 vertical metres by skiing or boarding 65,400 metres of vert. Participants are sponsored for their efforts and flexible all inclusive packages are available to cover travel and resort costs.
Last year's event raised a total of £17,169 for Make-A-Wish Foundation, a charity with a single purpose – to grant magical wishes to children and young people aged 3-17 fighting life-threatening illnesses. So far the charity has granted more than 7,000 magical wishes over 25 years.
Details of the 2013 event are yet to be finalised but advance registrations are being accepted at:
