BRITISH SKI AND SNOWBOARD

Just two weeks before the start of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Delancey signed up as headline sponsor for British Ski and Snowboard (BSS), providing funding for 2014 & 2018 Olympic success. Vital support is provided for athlete development across all teams, including Alpine, Snowboard, Freestyle and Cross Country as BSS endeavours to become one of the world’s top five skiing and snowboarding nations by 2030.

The headline sponsorship is in addition to Delancey’s title sponsorship of the Delancey British National Alpine Championships. This is the biggest event of the season for the British Ski Racing world and attracts 300 athletes from around the world, including Britain’s finest able and disabled Alpine athletes. Supported by Delancey for the seventh consecutive year, the Championships took place in Tignes, with Senior and Junior racing from 26th March to 2nd April, followed by the Under 16 and Under 14 Championships from 3rd April to 7th April.  This year the best of British alpine talent competed in the event, including Number 1 Slalom skier Dave Ryding, who recently finished 2nd in the Kitzbuhel World Cup.

Jamie Ritblat, Delancey’s Founder & Chairman said: “Delancey is delighted to be able to help not only young people who have demonstrated their potential, but also those whose international pedigree is already evident, backing them in training and competition at world-class level. I am thrilled to be able to provide the support they so readily deserve from a young age, and to ensure Team GB continues to be a leading force in winter sports.” 
 
Delancey is also committed to nurturing snowsports talent at a grass roots level and over the last year has supported the first ever Championship Ski and Snowboard (CSS) league. The competition gives recognition to young British Ski and Snowboard athletes who have the real potential to excel, and offers them an opportunity to showcase their skills and push their limits. In April 2017, the CSS league was also introduced to the BRITS competition which took place in in Laax. Prizes were awarded to young ski and snowboarders to help inspire them to achieve their snowsports ambition.
