Skiworld resort staff teams across France, Austria and Switzerland will be taking part in a huge challenge. NEW

The challenge is to ski and snowboard 16,000km.

Why 16,000km?

It's the distance between Skiworld's top Canadian resort of Whistler and the top resorts in the Alps.

Why the challenge?

To raise £16,000 to support youth snow-sports charity Snow-Camp.

The teams in the Austrian Alps will take on the challenge on the 8th April.

Same date for those in Switzerland.

French Alps teams on the 15th April.

There will be a grand total of 317 overseas staff participating across 15 ski resorts.



Each participant's mileage will be tracked using a GPS app.

There'll also be mini challenges en route through the day.

The numbers'll be submitted as one resort team.

The winning team is the one with the most kilometres skied or snowboarded as well as how much the team manages to raise for Snow-Camp.

Snow-Camp is dedicated to changing the lives of underprivileged inner-city young people.

They do this through the power of skiing, snowboarding, life-skills training, qualifications and vocational opportunities.

The organisation aims to positively increase the motivations and aspirations of the young adults involved.

To broaden horizons and enable them to gain employment in the snowsports industry and beyond.
