Open to all students aged 8-18 years, from any school and of all abilities (including first-time racers), the championship includes slalom, giant slalom and parallel slalom events.

The event takes place in Les Deux Alpes, a prestigious resort in France, over five days. The event is usually held in second or third week of December right at the start of the season.

The championship has been running since 2005, although 2019 will mark the start of its new partnership with Halsbury.

Halsbury’s Managing Director Keith Sharkey says, “At Halsbury, we’re passionate about snowsports and inspiring young people to reach their potential through travel. Therefore, this exciting opportunity for young snowsports athletes to compete against one another abroad fits perfectly into our values and makes an exciting addition to our portfolio.”

He continues, “The championship is open to all schools and we’re sure it will be of great interest to many of the groups who travel with Halsbury Ski on their school ski trips. As keen skiers ourselves, we’re really excited about this opportunity to help young skiers and snowboarders develop their skills and grow their passion for their sport.”
