About the City Ski Championships
The City Ski Championships started in Courmayeur in 2000, with a group of 50 skiers from the City of London, who were keen to try out amateur ski racing in the Alps.
Over the past 20 years, the annual event has gone from strength to strength, now run in partnership with the Financial Times and attracting over 250 attendees each year, from a wide range of industries across Europe.
Held over a long weekend, the event provides London & Europe’s business community with an opportunity to network, entertain clients, reward employees or simply attend with friends and work colleagues, all surrounded by stunning mountain scenery, whilst getting to try out ski racing.
Having since been hosted in Crans Montana, Verbier and back in Courmayeur, the event has evolved to include a full itinerary of skiing, lunches and dinners both on and off the mountain, après ski with live bands, club nights, a gala dinner, plus the Financial Times Alpine Forum, which was instated in 2011.
Organised and hosted by Momentum Ski – specialists in organising bespoke Alpine events – the Championships are considered the premier Alpine event for business executives.
