It takes place in the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana next March for its 15th outing. PlanetSKI will be there. So, what is it all about?

It is where cat suits mix with pin stripes as the movers and shakers in the London financial scene compete with each other on the ski slopes.

This year more invitations have been extended to the European financial community.

There is also a mix of ex-racers, celebriites and figures from the snowsports scene.

Individual racers compete against their colleagues and peers, or as teams in the Accenture Dual Parallel Slalom and the Giant Slalom race.

The Championships also incorporate The Lloyd's of London Cup and The Stock Exchange Challenge, along with newly created events including the Hedge Fund and  Private Equity Championships.

Up to 300 skiers of all levels will be taking part.

There is a full itinerary of skiing, coaching, racing, on and off mountain après ski culminating in an award and charity auction gala dinner.

Running alongside will be the 2014 Alpine Business Forum. Run in association with the Financial Times, and chaired by Business Life editor Ravi Mattu.

For the glimpse at what it is all about see the video from last year.

The 2014 Championships support the charity Borne, preventing disability in childbirth and creating lifelong health for mothers and babies.

PlanetSKI has been invited to take part this year and we'll be there next March along with a number of other well-know figures from the snowsports world.

The City Ski Championships  take place 13-16 March 2014.
