Ski & Snowboard Foundation Nepal: Building together a bright future

<p><strong>What is the Nepal Ski &amp; Snowboard federation doing?</strong></p> <p>After the devastating earthquake which hit Nepal in 2015, Nepali students and mountain guides initiated the Ski and Snowboarding Foundation Nepal. They&nbsp;train mountain guides how to conduct skitours securely with tourists in close collaboration with a&nbsp;consortium of Austrian, German, Swedish and Swiss ski instructors that are keen on sharing their skills and knowledge. At the same time the organization encourages Nepalese students and youngsters to learn how to ski and snowboard&nbsp;to maximize their chances in their professional life.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/686608/a0579100-1988-4c62-b387-5228ec5f5108.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p><strong>What do we ask &amp; why?</strong></p> <p>Since the spring of 2020, all Nepal&#39;s&nbsp;tourism has been put on hold due to the Covid-19 crisis. As also now during autumn tourism in not picking up again, the NGO &amp; a lot of families are struggling to obtain the yearly income on which they rely. Therefore we are looking for financial &amp; material&nbsp;donations (e.g. old skitouring material, skins, poles, splitboards, boots, avalanche safety equipement, etc) to ensure the foundation&nbsp;can continue their work.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/686617/60a02f02-aa11-464d-aaf8-0c35cc62f78c.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p><strong>Who are we?</strong></p> <p>We are a Belgian team of experienced skiers,&nbsp;snowboarders &amp;&nbsp;Alpine climbers who were planning to team up with the Foundation in December to go &amp; exchange&nbsp;knowledge &amp; expertise by exploring together&nbsp;a remote Nepalese area during winter. Unfortunately the&nbsp;outlook of the crisis&nbsp;isn&#39;t looking bright &amp; chances are getting really small that we can go &amp; therefore we hope to still be able to support in a different way.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/686613/214194c4-071d-4702-8587-6dcf61a708b1.PNG" width="100%" /></p>
