Ski for Sadie Charity Ski

Ski for Sadie is a unique charity event taking place in the Alps. The event challenges participants to reach checkpoint markers located all over the ski area. Our very own app will help you record the checkpoints reached and there will be points up for grabs for teams based on: checkpoints reached, time between checkpoints, cryptic puzzle solving and more! There will be varying levels of challenge based around ski ability but the ultimate aim is to push yourself (like Sadie did) to ski as far as you can in the time allocated.

Sadie’s love for Skiing

Sadie would visit the Alps with her Dad Stewart, and family, whenever she had a chance. Stewart and Sadie would often ski over 80kms a day – mind-blowing for an 8/9 year old! Sadie loved skiing in the Alps and we wanted to create a fundraising event like no other!


If you wish, our partners can tailor make your accommodation when you book your 2023 Ski for Sadie ticket. At our last event, we stayed in two superbly managed and situated chalets that included breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner. Facilities included of sauna, swimming pool and during the evening participants reflected on the day and planned ahead for the following one in front of open fires with a glass of wine – Perfect!

Ski for Sadie 

The first Ski for Sadie took place in 2020 in Les Arcs and 3 valleys. Participants spending 3 days in each, taking part in a variety of challenges across both areas. The ultimate reaching all checkpoints in both areas, 100 in total. Achieved by one team. Planning their route nightly and strategically achieving an amazing feat, as well as skiing all that mileage in 6 days. Another challenge was hitting as many checkpoints in any given day. 49 on the last day in Paradiski by one participant. Leaving Arc 2000 to Montalbert via Montchavin, all of La Plagne including Champany and back to Arc 2000 via 1600, 1800 and 1950. Outstanding on both accounts. Photo competitions and the solving of cryptic clues to reveal Sadies favourite song and food.

It was brilliant to be involved in the event, congratulations on putting that together. It was a fantastic tribute to Sadie and her spirit drove everyone on to achieve some amazing skiing. I’ve never done that much in all my years on the slopes! What an experience.


We can't do this on our own and are lucky to have some great partners working with us.
