The EDGE Skills for Life Awards

The EDGE Skills for Life Awards

Now included complementary on all Equity Ski trips!

EDGE: Empowerment, Determination, Growth, Engagement

Working closely with four-time Olympian and Equity Ambassador, Chemmy Alcott (who has experienced the life-changing benefits through ski first-hand), we have developed a framework of life skills a young person can achieve through their ski trip and named them the EDGE Skills for Life Awards.

The edge Awards

The EDGE Awards are now included complementary for Party Leaders on all Equity Ski trips.

When you book a ski trip, we will send you all the information you need about the programme and our in-resort team will guide your group throughout our Skills for Life programme during their stay.

So, how can a young person win an EDGE award?

At the end of their week, we will host an awards evening giving young people the opportunity to win an EDGE Skills for Life Award for each of the skill sets below. For example, they could win an award for Resilience and Motivation.

As well as our EDGE programme of awards, there are other awards up for grabs on the night such as, Best Wipeout and Fastest Skier.

Skills Areas:

  • Resilience and motivation
  • Leadership and commitment
  • Teamwork and trust
  • Fairness and respect
  • Responsibility and personal best
  • Collaborating and communicating
 

Through our ski trips young people will gain a huge sense of achievement by conquering the slopes. They will also take away a whole host of skills that will enhance their lives, such as; becoming more resilient, communicating better and motivating themselves and others.
