About National Schools Snowsport Week

Monday 24th June- Sunday 30th June 2019

Giving young people the opportunity to get involved in snowsports for the first time.

For some, it will be their first time on skis or snowboards and for others, it will be a chance to try racing, freestyle or skier/boarder cross.

The week will be an enriching and exciting experience in a new sport which combines physical strength with fine skills of balance and agility.

Taking place at clubs and ski slopes nationwide who throughout the week are offering discounted/free taster lessons.

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
