Charlie Raposo, aged 20 is one Britain's top alpine skiers. Having grown up in England until 13, with frequent recreational ski holidays in Verbier, Switzerland, it wasn't long before his parents couldn't get him off skis. After three years of racing and training in Europe with British programs he moved to Vermont, USA to attend a ski academy. That benefitted in far more ways than just his skiing. He gained incredible experience thousands of miles away from home and learnt far more than how to ski fast.
Since finishing school, he has committed to competing at the top level of ski racing. While being apart of the British National Ski Team, Charlie trains with Global Racing Ski Team and long time coach Paul Epstein. Charlie trains and races in four different continents and many different countries. He has competed at the World Championships, World Junior Championships, European Youth Olympics, as well as competing on the North American Cup Tour and European Cup Tours.
In the next three years, Charlie hopes to develop as an athlete onto the World Cup circuit to compete in 2018 at the Olympics in South Korea.
