Team Temprotech's World Record!

Ski 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Ski 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of respite breaks for families affected by cancer.

We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise and altitude and how they can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

Team Temprotech

On Thursday 9 March, Russell, Andy, Alex and Philip from Temprotech will attempt to set a new World Record.

Their challenge is to ski the vertical height of Mount Everest, the World's highest mountain, in just one day!

But they can’t do this on their own though as Guinness state that 251 people must complete the challenge in Hinterglemm (Austria) for the World Record to be officially recognised.

The challenge is a BIG one. In just one day they intend to ski a vertical height of more than 29,029 feet or 8,848 metres. To put this into perspective, that's as high as most airlines fly or 3,400 flights of stairs!

Despite their efforts to complete the task last year, the boys from Temprotech just missed out on the record as not enough people were able to complete the task.

This time we hope things will be different... and to keep them motivated, the boys will be skiing alongside ski jumping legend Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards!

Team Temprotech said:

"This is a TOUGH challenge but we know it can be achieved. We really want the World Record and hope we can get enough people to join us on the slopes this time!

But the real challenge is to raise some funds for this very special cause. We've all known a lot of people who have been affected by cancer... this is for them.

Any donations will make a huge difference and that means a great deal to us. Thank you."

Russ, Andy, Alex & Philip
