National Schools Snowsport Week 2016

National Schools Snowsport Week

A brand new initiative from Snowsport England aimed at encouraging more schools to introduce their pupils to snowsports will run this winter at 21 slopes across England.  

'National Schools Snowsport Week sponsored by 'Visit Andorra', which is being backed by Winter Olympians Aimee Fuller and Graham Bell, will run at indoor and artificial slopes across the country from 22 - 29 April 2016.


Throughout the week there will be a range of events at different slopes 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. Some activities will be free and others will be offered to schools at affordable prices. There are also expected to be guest appearances from snowsports stars and celebrities throughout the week.


The activities at different slopes are open to all school ages and to any school keen to get involved. Schools can join in with whole classes, whole year groups, or even with just a handful of students. They can find all the information about how they can get involved and which slopes are participating in National Schools Snowsport Week at
