About Us

Welcome to the Ski 4 Cancer website. Ski 4 Cancer is a UK charity that raises funds to provide days out and short breaks for families affected by cancer. This is what we call "respite".

Many of our respite trips and short breaks have an alpine focus. From family days out at UK snow domes to longer holidays in the mountains (summer and winter), we give families something to look forward to during the most difficult of times.

Spending time at altitude has many health benefits and is proven to lower the incidence of certain forms of cancer. We passionately believe in the therapeutic powers of the alpine environment.

Creating memories for families living with cancer since 2001
