Ian Findlay, Talent Lead at Snowsport England said they were looking forward to getting competition underway at their new home in Castleford. 

"We are delighted that we are able to run an English Indoor Mogul Championships, and have the experts to build an impressive moguls course," he said.  

"We are then expecting big numbers of young competitors for both the Slopestyle and the Ski/Snowboard Cross Champs later in the spring."  

The English Indoor Championships not only allow young athletes at the top of their sport to challenge for the English titles, they also provide a foundation for skiers and snowboarders new to competition to gain event experience and advance their snowsports career.
