CDC searches for budding snowsport enthusiasts to join training camp this October

CDC are beginning a mountain search for four budding snowsport enthusiasts to join their upcoming CDC Performance October training camp, funded by Delancey, Principal Sponsor of British Ski & Snowboard. 

CDC Performance, founded by Dougie Crawford and Chemmy Alcott is not just a ski training club and a ski race team. Alongside technical and physical training for podium results, the camp prides itself on its ambition to enhance personal development through, using motivational techniques to teach individuals, especially young people, invaluable life skills.

Co-founder Chemmy Alcott commented “We have been thrilled with the remarkable results achieved in our first year. What is extremely important to us is that these results are not only in terms of race podiums, but in the personal character building amongst our young members. This surpasses sole achievements made on the slopes, by helping to instill a new found confidence and self-belief, which flows through their life in general.”

Founders of CDC Performance, Chemmy Alcott and Dougie Crawford, are both looking to share their passion for the slopes and determination to learn and succeed with the selected applicants. Both come from strong and successful Snowsports backgrounds, and since competing in the Delancey British National Alpine Championships, Chemmy is now a World Class Coach and four Time Winter Olympian, and Dougie has become a 25 Time British Champion.

Having previously supported Chemmy and Dougie at the Delancey British National Alpine Ski Championships, and as Principal Sponsor of British Ski & Snowboard, specialist real estate investment, development and advisory company Delancey, is keen to extend their support to offer this new, exciting opportunity.

With a shared belief in the physical and emotional benefits that can be gained through the power of sport, Delancey is delighted to be able to team-up with CDC Performance to offer four lucky individuals the chance to take a place at the next camp, from 15th -22nd October in Hintertux Austria. Two of these allocated places will be offered to Delancey’s inspirational charity partner, Snow-Camp, to the most deserving inner-city graduates, whilst two are up for grabs for anyone aged 12-18 to apply for.

Jamie Ritblat, founder and chairman of Delancey, commented: “We are delighted to be a part of the fantastic work taking place at the CDC Performance camps. We believe our funding will help develop four very deserving applicants who are willing to learn and grow in their Snowsports journey. We wish all applicants the very best.”

Successful individuals may not be those with the best ski results, but those who show the best attitude for learning and development, or those who have overcome adversity in pursuit of their skiing dreams. In essence the selected individuals will be those who CDC Performance and Delancey believe will get the most out of their experience on the camp.

In order to apply, potential candidates should email for further information about the application processes. The closing date for applications is 4th September. Skype interviews will then follow with Chemmy Alcott from 8th – 11th and the chosen four will be announced no later than Wednesday 14th September.
