Eddie The Eagle Lands With SkiWeekends To Spend Time With Guests And Helps Raise Money For Ski 4 Cancer

Eddie the Eagle returns to SkiWeekends in two destinations during January to spend time with guests.

£25 per person from every booking with Eddie will be donated to the charity Ski 4 Cancer.

SkiWeekends is hosting well-known ski jumper Eddie the Eagle Edwards during January in two of its chalets – Monique in Courchevel and the new Violetta in Avoriaz. Guests have the chance to ski with Eddie during his stay and watch the Hollywood movie of his life after an evening meal in the chalet. It follows a stay last year in Courchevel, with the new resort of Avoriaz added for January 2020.

Chalet Monique in Courchevel Moriond (1650) sleeps 26 guests and is the largest chalet in SkiWeekends’ portfolio. Ski-in-ski-out Chalet Violetta sleeps 14 guests and is located in the heart of Avoriaz, whilst guests staying in the nearby Chalet Perce Neige (sleeps 10) can also participate in the activities with Eddie.

SkiWeekends Managing Director, Dan Fox, said:

Eddie stayed with us for the first time last winter in Courchevel and guests absolutely loved spending time with him. This time we are also giving our guests in Avoriaz this opportunity as well. He happens to be a fantastic skier but just enjoys spending time with people on the slopes. Our partner charity Ski 4 Cancer will receive £25 from anyone that books into those chalets on any of the special Eddie dates – it’s a charity close to our hearts that Eddie is also a patron of too.

Eddie the Eagle Edwards said:

I had a great time with SkiWeekends last winter and even felt like I was on a proper ski holiday, it’s just not something that I normally get the chance to do. This season I also get to stay in Avoriaz too, I’m really looking forward to it.

About Ski 4 Cancer

Ski 4 Cancer was set up by a group of keen skiers and snowboarders who have all lost a close relative or friend to cancer. By providing a range of alpine respite holidays for families living with cancer, Ski 4 Cancer gives families something to look forward to at the end of treatment schedules or after a loved one has died. Ski 4 Cancer also makes grants to palliative care centres and supports research into the positive effects of exercise and how it can both prevent cancer and assist in people’s recovery post diagnosis.
