Following a record year for the English Alpine Championships, Snowsport England is delighted to announce that it will extend its contract for the championships with Bormio Ski for another three years from 2020 until 2022.
In February hundreds of competitors and their families enjoyed an action-packed week of skiing in Bormio, Italy for the 23rd English Alpine Championships – the biggest ever event in the competition’s history.
Following the success of the event, Snowsport England has secured a new deal with Bormio Ski to extend the English Alpine Championships for another three years from 2020 to 2022! Dates have already been confirmed for the 2020 championships which will take place in Bormio, Italy from Sunday 16th to Friday 21st February 2020, with the opening parade scheduled for Saturday 15th February.
The English Alpine Championships act as a gateway for future British alpine skiing stars and in the past have featured competitors such as World Cup alpine ski racer Dave Ryding (aka ‘The Rocket’). The English Alpine Championships are the most popular championships of the season, not only for the athletes but also for fans and parents.
For 12 years, Snowsport England has enjoyed a fantastic relationship with the resort and the town, so we are excited to be returning there next year. The event has grown considerably in the last three years and will continue to do so as we see the next generation of athletes competing on the world famous Stelvio pistes – which are among the most technical and spectacular skiing slopes in the world.
Bormio has become very popular in recent years and during the winter season there are more and more families and school children travelling from the UK to enjoy the ski area.
Thank you to all involved who help make the championships a success year on year. We’re already looking forward to what next year’s event will bring!
