The MS Trust is looking for skiers and snowboarders to join its Monster Ski Challenge in Chamonix next 13-17 March 2015, where they will ski the 30,000 vertical feet height of Mount Everest every day to raise funds to help people with multiple sclerosis.
Monster Ski is being to raise funds for the MS Trust, a charity that trains specialist nurses and provides information for people living with multiple sclerosis (MS). The event offers a unique way to experience the Chamonix Valley, whilst being part of something really special to benefit people living with an unpredictable life-long condition.
“The camaraderie was excellent and everyone returned home feeling proud of our achievements,” said Sarah Burgess from Southampton who took part in Monster Ski 2014, “I would certainly recommend this trip to anyone looking for a ski trip with a difference – pushing yourself to the limit on the slopes, whilst at the same time raising money for a great cause.”
This will be the MS Trust’s seventh Monster Ski Challenge (the first six have raised over £400,000) and the charity is looking for 25 skiers and snowboarders, who are confident on red runs, to take part. It costs £150 to register and you must pledge to raise £1,500 in sponsorship.
Included in the price are flights and transfers, accommodation (bed and breakfast), a three day lift pass and ski guides who will lead small groups during the challenge. The trip is organised by leading independent ski tour operator Ski Independence.
The MS Trust provide participants with lots of support and advice to help you raise your sponsorship, as well as putting you in touch with other Monster Skiers so you can share fundraising ideas.
