Snow-Camp
Snow-Camp is a youth charity whose work with disadvantaged inner city young people has developed rapidly since being established in London in 2003. Our programmes support young people by combining snow-sports lessons and intensive youth work sessions to engage, challenge and motivate young people, transforming attitudes and behaviour and developing key life-skills.

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

Estabiished in 2008 to raise funding for charities - previous challenges have raised a total £1.4 million for Lukemia & Melanoma reasearch projects, the SkillForce & Greenhouse charities - this year 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. 13 years after being established in 2003, Snow-Camp has now grown to a point where the charity is aiming to expand programmes nationally across 5 UK cities over the coming 3 years, 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:
- Daniel Evans (Snowboard & Ski South America)
- John Bassett (Dragon Lodge)
- Rob Forbes (CoolBus)
- 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 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 consultancy & networked organisation…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.
