The Delancey British National Alpine Ski Championships will return to the French ski resort of Tignes for the third year in a row. The action takes place at the end of next March.

 
The biggest event on the British Alpine Ski Racing calendar sees around 500 competitors to the slopes of Tignes.

It will see the best British ski racers battling it out for the British Championships honours alongside their world-class international counterparts.
 
The Senior and Junior Championships, which will feature the top names of British skiing such as Dave Ryding, Alex Tilley and Charlie Guest.

There will be rising Alpine stars including Iain Innes and Yasmin Cooper.

It all takes place from 25th March to 2nd April 2017.

Hoping to return will also be reigning overall Delancey British Champion, Cara Brown, who is back training hard following a knee injury sustained earlier this year.
 
The thriving Delancey Children's National Championships will follow the Senior and Junior Champs, running run from 3rd to 7th April and featuring young ski racers from the age of Under 10 upwards.

This winter the Children's Championships will be looked after by a new organising team, headed up by Lloyd Jenkins and Andrea Grant. Long-term Chief of Champs, Paul Trayner, will continue to take charge for the Senior and Junior Championships.
 
"As Principal Sponsor of British Ski and Snowboard, Delancey's continued support is aimed to help scout, nurture and develop the best of Britain's snowsport talent from grassroots to the elite," said the Chairman & CEO of Delancey, Jamie Ritblat.

"As well as supporting the overarching ambition to produce Olympic medal winning athletes, we are delighted to provide our Alpine athletes with their own British Championships. The Delancey British National Alpine Ski Championships 2017 will be the seventh consecutive Delancey Championships and we are very much looking forward to returning to Tignes to see our talent in action on the slopes," he added.

This week a new initiative was launched to try to raise extra funds for GB racers with skiers and snowboarders making a small donation as they book their holiday - see here for that story.
