Former ESSKIA Athletes Testimonials

Charlotte Evans MBE

  

Esskia is an incredible organisation that has been going for many years. I have such fond memories of every Esskia trip I went on and the friends I made. The best esskia trips were when we got selected to represent our country at World Schools, we got to see so many amazing places and got to experience things we didn’t always get chance to do when racing. The coaches were always so supportive and positive and gave every athlete on the trip, the confidence to do anything they wanted in the ski world. Esskia is something I will always treasure close to my heart and remember as the start of a great career in skiing for me.
