GB Snowsport today announce that the British Senior Alpine Championships 2021, which were due to be held in Tignes, France between March 28th – April 4th, 2021 has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic.
We have been continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation and due to the British Government’s guidelines around international travel, we have reached this decision with our partners Tignes.
We are looking forward to coming back bigger and better in 2022, with the Senior Championships taking place between 27th March and 3rd April 2022 and the Children’s Championships from 4th April to 8th April.
Paul Trayner, GB Snowsport Alpine Director:
“It is with great regret that we have to make this announcement. The GB Champs is a real highlight of the season and a key milestone event for so many of our athletes. The GB Snowsport alpine squad have achieved some fantastic results so far this season, and I know they were looking forward to competing in Tignes. To be starved of it for 2 consecutive seasons is a real shame but we will return to Tignes in 2022 and endeavour to make it the biggest and best GB Champs yet. This year has been a real challenge for us all and I hope that we can get back to the sport that we love very soon”.
Frédéric Porte, Director General of Tignes Development:
“Hosting the GB Snowsport British Alpine Championships in Tignes has become a tradition over the years. The bond that we have with GB Snowsport has historically been very strong and seeing the 2021 edition of the Championships also being cancelled (after the first cancellation in 2020) due to the global COVID pandemic is a great disappointment for all. We will make sure though that together with GB Snowsport we will prepare the best ever 2022 edition. In the meantime; stay safe!”
