Crowdfunding in snowsports is in vogue.

Last year saw a hugely successful campaign organised by Joost Van Zundert in his attempt to protect La Grave from avaricious developers.

That raised over €61,000 in a matter of weeks – principally because so many skiers and snowboarders out there feel strongly about La Grave – there’s an emotional touch-point.

The latest snowsports funding campaign that we’ve recently come across is less likely to succeed – Adam Weavers from Watford is currently looking for backers to help him go skiing in Meribel next season.

No contributions yet…

Unfortunately at present, he hasn’t found any backers.  And to be fair, his story does tug at the heart-strings:

After putting off skiing for 12 years I went skiing in Meribel. I can’t wait for another twelve years to go skiing again.”

If that doesn’t move you, then nothing will.
