Since 2003, Snow-Camp – one of the UK’s most innovative charities – have been changing the lives of young people from underprivileged inner-city backgrounds by harnessing the power of skiing & snowboarding to increase their motivation and aspirations, positively challenging their attitudes, developing key life-skills and enabling them to gain qualifications and employment in the snowsports industry and beyond.
Young people progressing through Snow-Camp evolve as individuals, both personally and professionally, and graduate with new skills and self-belief to go on to many other positive destination in life.
From sport to professional life there is only one step. By confronting the apprehension of going down a ski or snowboard slope, young people gain confidence, perseverance, determination and courage. By accessing the pleasure of winter sports away from the inner-city environment, they broaden their perspectives. By participating in Snow-Camp’s life-skills programmes, they develop their professional and personal skills. Conquered by the spirit of Snow-Camp, the Hotels d'en Hauts are now proud to support their efforts in this initiative.
Moving from the artificial ski slopes in the UK to the pleasures of fresh snow in the mountains is what will happen to Hamza and Zulekha, two Snow-Camp students. They will join the Fitz Roy team to implement and develop their professional & personal development with Snow-Camp by working within the hotel. You will have the pleasure to meet them since they will be in charge of welcoming our guests in the ski room. They will participate in the professional life of the hotel and at the same time learn the French language. We will also host, in Val Thorens, "A season in a Week" experience for another ten Snow-Camp students. They will be initiated, by us, to the mountain hotel business and life in the resort, in partnership with Val Thorens.
You will be able to follow their adventures via our social networks. You can join our support for Snow-Camp, which we would be grateful to you, by making a donation to the charity directly when you make your online reservation or when you check-out at one of our premium hotels. Together, with our shared passion for winter sports, we can really impact the future of these young people!
