Welsh Alpine Championships 2019, Champery Switzerland

February 1, 2019

13th Year of the Alpine Champs in Champery - Lucky for Some!

The 13th edition of the Welsh Alpine Championships is now a memory for many, and most involved - very good memories to be had as the event was hailed an all round success. Four days of high level competitions followed several days of training for athletes young and old on the slopes of Champery Les Crosets in the Regions Dents du Midi (Swiss side of the Portes du Soleil ski area).

The 2019 championships benefitted from excellent snow, great weather, quiet pistes and a strong field of competitors. The numbers and levels of the competition seem to grow year on year, this year once again record numbers entering the two final days of competitions hitting 160 competitors - most significantly, more females and males!

 
To complete a fantastic week the championships was really honoured to receive a visit and the support of the Secretary of State for Wales, MP Alun Cairns. Having been informed of the success of the championships in previous years Mr Cairns was keen to see the event in action and to help support the race organisation and the team from the resort. The Secretary of State arrived in time to see the final day of competition and to award the trophies at the prize giving ceremony in the village square in Champery on Friday evening. Mr Cairns left impressed by the high standard of competitors, especially in the U10/12s competition.
