Confident on a red run and fit enough to ski all day, every day in all conditions? Fancy skiing the vertical equivalent of Mount Everest three days in a row to raise money for charity? The Monster Ski challenge wants to hear from you.

The challenge, held to raise funds for the MS Trust, takes place in Chamonix

next March and is looking for 25 participants who want to ski or snowboard 30,000 vertical feet every day for three days.

This is the sixth running of the event, but the first time it has been held in Chamonix. Previous events have been held in Colorado, Engelberg, Whistler and Tignes, raising £385,000 for the MS Trust, a charity that trains specialist nurses and provides information for people living with multiple sclerosis.

If you would like to get involved, you can register now for just £150, plus a pledge to raise £1,500 in sponsorship.

Included in the price are flights and transfers, accommodation (bed and breakfast) with Ski Independence, a three-day lift pass and ski guides who will lead small groups during the challenge. The MS Trust will provide lots of support and advice to help you raise your sponsorship, as well as putting you in touch with other Monster Skiers so you can share fundraising ideas.

Olly Keith from Lancashire took part in Monster Ski in Tignes in 2012.

She said, “Fourteen amazing people, and me, took part — aged 25 to 57, three with MS, mostly experienced skiers and five boarders, all with their own motivation — most with a personal connection to MS. I am very proud to have been able to raise money for the MS Trust. As for my team mates — their drive and commitment was inspirational and the whole adventure was truly memorable.”
