NATIONAL SCHOOLS SNOWSPORT WEEK
Sponsored by Interski, run by Snowsport England
2019 dates to be confirmed!
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.
The third ever National Schools Snowsport Week sponsored by Interski took place from Monday 23rd until Sunday 29th April 2018 and 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.
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. In 2017, the campaign saw more than double the amount of children taking part than the previous year, at 2353. In 2018 the total numbers were very close to 3500 and we hope that 2019 will be even bigger yet!
