Welsh Alpine Championships 2020 - Champery, Switzerland's gateway to the Portes du Soleil ski region

2020 Welsh Alpine Championships - Newsletter Image.pngSnowsport Cymru Wales is delighted to confirm the Welsh Alpine Championships will be held in Champery, Switzerland from the 18th-25th January 2020. This will be the 14th year in a row of our Championships in the Region Dents du Midi and we thank the resort for their continued support.

The 2020 Championships consist of five days of competition with training facilities made available to clubs in resort in the build up to the championships.  The first two days of competition are FIS-CIT International events, these are for competitors holding FIS international race licences with their national governing body (British Ski & Snowboard in the case of GB competitors) and only competitors in the U18 category or older are eligible to participate in FIS races. The last three days of competition are designated as our Welsh Alpine Championship days, these races are eligible for competitors registered with their home nation (or holding international licences for non GB competitors).  Competitors in these races will fall into two main categories U10/U12 and U14 and older as specific races are run to suit the ages of the competitors.
