February will be the day when the Alpine Team Event takes place, but directly afterwards at 14:00 a completely different group of athletes will take centre stage as the Right to Play and Passion Schneesport Charity race takes place.
The charity race, which currently has 17 teams registered that include countless former World Cup and World Championship Alpine Skiing stars, will benefit Right To Play, the international charity partner of FIS and Passion Schneesport, the Swiss charity supporting junior talents.
A few of the legends already confirmed to participate include Kjetil Andre Aamodt, Bernhard Russi, Didier Cuche, Marco Buchel, Bruno Kernen and many more. The Organisers of the race have enough capacity for 22 teams, so there is still time for last minute entries, which includes VIP club Access to watch the Nation’s Team Event and a raclette/fondue get together, sponsored by Swiss Ski, the evening after the race.
The registered teams include: Audi, Longines, Madrisa, Raiffeisen, Courchevel-Meribel 2023, Valora, Stöckli, FIS among others.
Within those teams, which are made up of four skiers, will be several legends, both male and female hoping to take home bragging rights from the race all in the name of a good cause.
Right To Play operates in over 20 countries and carries out programmes for more than 1’000’000 children on a weekly basis. It teaches children essential life skills through sport and play activities. In order to sustain and to increase its programming, its sports partners and athlete ambassadors all play an important role.
