Chill Factore Sponsored Athletes requirements

August is an exciting time of year for Chillfactore as we look to support the next generation of rising stars who train at the centre by offering a small number of people sponsorship for a 12 month period which consists of free slope use and training. We are looking for people who embody our company values and will amaze and inspire our guests.

To many athletes this is obviously a very valuable opportunity and stepping stone, and as a team we get many requests from people wishing to be considered.

Selecting the sponsored athlete’s team each year therefore is a very challenging job as we have to choose only 20 athletes. At present, we support athletes from across all disciplines including Alpine, Freeski, Halfpipe Ski, Freestyle Moguls, Ski Cross, Boardercross, Snowboard Halfpipe, Snowboard Slopestyle and the various DSUK disciplines.

We certainly do not want to discourage anyone from applying, but it is worth us highlighting the fact that we will be reducing the size of the team this year (from 30 to 20) and inevitably many people will therefore be disappointed if they are not selected this year.

Sponsorship Portfolio

For anyone wishing to apply we will require a structured athlete’s sponsorship proposal which must include the following details from everyone, in order to be considered for sponsorship with Chill Factore.

  • Details of how Chill Factore as a company and brand will benefit from any potential sponsorship. i.e. training commitments, media coverage, competitions etc.
  • A brief overview and athlete profile (tell us a bit about yourself and your current relationship with Chill Factore)
  • List of all competitions entered this season including a detailed breakdown, of the results, showing the full field and results, in terms of age category. We also need to know the number of athletes in the category.
