Social issues

Since 2008, the two ski clubs Altendorf and Siebnen have worked together on a voluntary basis to organize and hold the GPM, the world’s biggest children’s ski race.
In the same spirit as the Olympics, it is not just about sporting success, but also taking part, the social and societal development of children and young people and the joy of sport as a healthy activity.
We are dependent on your help to hold the event on the Hoch-Ybrig from 19 to 24 March 2024. The work ranges from preparatory tasks on and off the slopes, to marshalling the races, preparing the pistes and supervising the fun and games for children and youngsters in the finish area, known as the “village.”
