SKI NEWS

Nearly £40,000 has been raised in four days via GoFundMe for the British Alpine World Cup Ski Team since UK Sport announced a drastic reduction in funding. The target set by GB Snowsport is 500k to support Britain's strongest ever Alpine team to maintain all staff contracts and expenses during this winter.

STYLE ALTITUDE now has 8 (and counting) awards for our Ski Blog and the coveted accolade of BEST SKI & SNOWBOARD PUBLICATION UK, Fitness & Nutrition Awards.

STYLE ALTITUDE comes in the top three # on Google searches with many GEAR REVIEWS and FEATURES, ranking above all other ski and snowboard sites. This success after nearly 10 years of online publishing, is like ripping off the skins, switching the bindings to downhill mode and hitting a powder bowl.
