Now is your chance to give British Alpine Skiing a future to make sure you still have a team to cheer for on the World Cup tour and at World Championships this season.
We, Britain’s strongest ever Alpine team, are here, asking for your help so that we can continue to defy norms, break barriers and continue to lay the foundations for British success in Alpine Skiing for many years to come.
We are currently standing up to one of the toughest challenges of our careers. Despite a record-breaking season, with Britain’s first World Cup win, UK Sport decided to heavily reduce our funding. This means that our British World Cup programmes will be unsupported come the 1st of October.
Whilst we remain hopeful that we will find a strong partner to invest in our story filled with grit, gutsy performances and tenacity, finding stability to keep pre-season running and ensuring we can focus our full energy on training will be key for the best possible performances come race season.
We have set our target at 500k as this is the level of funding required to maintain all staff contracts and expenses for the season. All donations will go directly to a fund ringfenced for us to be able to do this.
We hope that you believe in our team of talented athletes and no matter how great or small, any donations will be gratefully received.
Billy Major, Charlie Guest, Charlie Raposo, Dave Ryding and Laurie Taylor.
