The low down
Now in its 33rd year the Lambert Smith Hampton Ski Challenge will bring together owners, occupiers, fund managers and managing directors from some of the largest property companies in the UK.
What happens in Courmayeur?
This year's event will continue this tradition and provide the perfect forum for attendees to reflect on the challenges and opportunities within our industry while enjoying some fun and friendly competition on the slopes.
To add even more excitement to the occasion, this year we will be joined by two winter sports special guests. More on this soon.
