SNOWSPORT ENGLAND NATIONAL SCHOOLS SNOWSPORT WEEK

Monday 24th – Sunday 30th April 2017

The second ever National Schools Snowsport Week sponsored by Visit Andorra takes place from Monday 24th until Sunday 30th April 2017 at over 20 slopes across the country, and is aimed at giving pupils at primary and secondary schools, as well as sixth form colleges, the chance to try skiing or snowboarding for free or at heavily discounted prices.

Get your school involved in trying skiing and snowboarding by CLICKING HERE to find your closest slope or club taking part in National Schools Snowsport Week.

National Schools Snowsport Week is backed by Winter Olympians Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards, Dave Ryding, Aimee Fuller and Graham Bell and gives all children and schools the chance to have a go at skiing or snowboarding without cost being a limiting factor.

We understand that for some school children, it will be their first time on skis or a snowboard. For others, it could be an opportunity to try racing, freestyle or ski or snowboard cross. For all we hope that it will be an enriching experience, which combines physical strength with fine skills of balance and agility.

After the week, we encourage schools to continue participating through programmes on offer at their local facility or facility linked local club. Hoping that overall this develops your school children's skills and abilities in a fun and engaging environment.

National Schools Snowsport Week was piloted in 2016, seeing a total of 21 Slopes across England, 149 schools and 1066 school children participate in the initiative. It is delivered by Snowsport England's Youth Development Committee, which aims to develop school children's skills and abilities and increases school participation in snowsports.
