Snow Camp a charity that has worked for the past 20 years to help change young lives for the better through snow sports, is aiming to host their biggest and most exciting Alpine fundraising challenge to date next winter.

To celebrate the charity’s 20th Anniversary, Switch180 (the parent charity of Snow Camp), supported by sponsors AJ Bell, will stage the 3 Valley Rally in Val Thorens on the 15th-18th April 2023 next spring.

This very special event to raise funds for Snow Camp will be staged at the heart of Les 3 Vallées skiing area in France. To celebrate the occasion, they will be taking over one of the most prestigious hotels the area has to offer, the 5-star Le Fitz Roy, where Michelin star quality food, drink and entertainment will be provided throughout the weekend.

“I am delighted to be launching our new fundraising challenge, the AJ Bell 3 Valley Rally. We have all been working hard to create something very special for our 20th anniversary and it is going to be wonderful to have so many supporters out in the Alps together. Events like this raise such important funds our work with young people across the country, and they are a fantastic experience for everyone involved – so please, grab three skiing or snowboarding friends and join us in Val Thorens!” said Dan Charlish, Founder of Snow Camp.

Since this is their 20th anniversary, they are hoping to bring together 20 teams to take on the multi-discipline challenge across the mountains, competing for the AJ Bell 3 Valley Rally Cup over the course of 2 days. Challenges include biathlon, a snowshoe hike, the downhill parallel slalom, a team distance challenge, orienteering and the longest zip wire in France. No experience necessary in any of these events.

There will be a number of VIP guests taking part in the event including Jenny Jones, Chemmy Alcott, Graham Bell, Warren Smith, Emily Sarsfield, Ed Leigh, Jamie Barrow and more big names to follow.

“We are excited to support Switch180’s biggest annual fundraiser and can’t wait to take part in the new event! The work the charity undertakes with young people is so important we want to do all we can to get behind Dan and the team. Events like this are great fun for everyone involved, and really help raise the profile and funds needed for their programme Snow Camp,” commented Andy Bell, CEO of AJ Bell.

Even after the setbacks of the pandemic, Snow Camp courses are now back at capacity and going from strength to strength. Funds raised from the AJ Bell 3 Valley Rally will provide much needed support to young people across the UK.
