Chemmy, who represented Team GB at four Winter Olympics during a 20-year sporting career, will once again host a ‘ski clinic’ to give participants an opportunity to improve their technique and make the most of the skiing opportunities at the three-day event.

Chemmy was the first and only female British ski racer to win a run in the World Cup and was ranked as high as 8th in the world.  Since retiring from alpine skiing after the Sochi games in 2014, she has established herself as a regular presenter of the BBC’s Ski Sunday programme and a commentator on Eurosport.

The Lambert Smith Hampton Ski Challenge will be held from 22 to 24 January 2018 at the Alpine ski resort of Courmayeur, and features over 100 delegates including owners, occupiers, fund managers and managing directors from some of the largest property companies in the UK.

Chemmy first appeared at the Lambert Smith Hampton Ski Challenge back in 2016, but was unable to attend last year due to the small matter of the arrival of her first child. Instead, British Olympic ski-jumping competitor Eddie ‘the Eagle’ Edwards, was drafted in to get the guests ‘race ready’.

Chemmy said: “I’m looking forward to returning to the Lambert Smith Hampton Ski Challenge for the second time. The event has a great balance between competitive skiers and those wishing to enjoy Courmayeur’s fantastic pistes at a more leisurely pace which makes for a very interesting session, although anyone looking for tips on ski jumping is likely to be disappointed!”

Ezra Nahome, CEO of Lambert Smith Hampton, said: "The Ski Challenge is the property industry's longest-standing skiing and networking event, and is something that we’re extremely proud of. We’re delighted that Chemmy has agreed to return and look forward to seeing her in action."

The Lambert Smith Hampton Ski Challenge is sponsored by DWF and Fairfield Real Estate Finance.
