Coeur Blanc Fundraiser for Snow-Camp

The Coeur Blanc is a ski & snowboard marathon, a challenge of planning skills and stamina: to use every one of the 52 lifts in the Meribel Valley, ride almost 100KM and the equivalent of 15,000 meters, or almost 2 Everest’s, in vertical drop - all in one day, taking place on Saturday 12th March. 

Established in 2008 - previous Coeur Blanc challenges raised £1.4 million for Leukaemia and Melanoma research, the Skillforce & Greenhouse charities. This yea the charity of choice is the excellent Snow-Camp.

Snow-Camp(who count our own Olympic medal winning shred-legend Jenny Jones as a patron) are the UK’s only registered charity using a combination of snowsports, life-skills and employment training to support inner-city young people - taking them from absolute beginner to qualified snowsports instructor and into employment over one life-changing year. Offering hope for a new start, Snow-Camp has grown over 13 years and are now expanding programmes nationally across 5 UK cities, as part of its 5NOW campaign - a goal which you donations can help achieve.

Our team is the only 100% snowboarder team attempting this years Coeur Blanc challenge and includes:

- Daniel Evans (Snowboard & Ski South America)
- John Bassett (Dragon Lodge)
- Rob Forbes (Cool Bus)
- Kieran Hicks (Tignes Spirit)
- Hamish Duncan (Penny Black)

Each of us in 'The Snowboarders' team has lived in and ridden the worlds mountains for the last 25+ years. We each created our own businesses inspired by what we learnt and who we met, by our experiences in and love of the mountains. From snowboard & ski chalets and tour operations, to an airport transfer company, snowboard & ski shops, and international branding & marketing consultancy…and a stint in the pro-snowboard game. None of our lives would have been the same without that initial contact with snowboarding.

Collectively we choose to support Snow-Camp as they are the only people out there offering the same life-changing ‘spark’ to inner city kids in the UK.
