Running from 22 – 29 April 2016, the new initiative from Snowsport England is offering free and affordable skiing and snowboarding sessions to schools, aimed at encouraging more schools to introduce their pupils to snowsports.
As their preferred supplier for school ski trip, we're proud to be apart of this initiative encouraging young people to take an active interest in snowsport. The week will see a range of events on offer for schools and pupils including taster ski and snowboard sessions for all pupils, alternative snow activities such as tobogganing and tubing and even freestyle or racing taster sessions at some slopes.
Graham Bell, five-time Olympian and presenter of BBC's Ski Sunday said of National Schools Snowsports Week: "There is nothing better than standing on a ski slope, the adrenaline rushing through your body as you start your descent - whether that is in the Alps or on an artificial ski slope. I wish every child could have the chance to give snowsports a go and enjoy that feeling, which is why National Schools Snowsports Week is such a great idea. Not only will children from a range of backgrounds get to give skiing or snowboarding a go, at some slopes there are ski racing taster sessions, so we might even find our next Winter Olympic Champion!"
There's still time to sign-up and get your school involved. Take a look at all of the available locations and dates on the National Schools Snowsport Week website, www.nssw.co.uk
