The Courmayeur Classic, a new fundraising event which has replaced the long running Alpine Challenge - its purpose is to raise money for Snow-Camp, who are a UK charity engaging with inner-city young people through wintersports; they help to provide life-skills, by way of training for a nationally recognised qualification, which in turn opens up vocational opportunities.
This event is split into 5 challenges, Snowshoe hike, Laser Biathlon, Team Orienteering and lastly the races – Team Slalom and Team Distance Challenge. All of which are held over two days.
It has been sad to see this event plus many others cancelled due to the pandemic, especially as the Courmayeur Classic has only been held once in its new format. But it does get us even more excited and eager to get back to slopes next year!
We hope you enjoy the video.
