30 DAYS OF SNOW SPORT
Wednesday September 19, 2018 - Email this article to a friend

A month-long effort to get people to try snowsports for the first time - or simply get their ski legs back before the season - is about to begin.



30 Days of Snowsport is back for a 5th year and offers free or heavily discounted snowsports at venues across the UK.

The Snowsport England initiative will run at indoor ski centres, dry slopes, snowsports clubs and rollerski venues from 1st to 30th October.

So far 300 sessions have been arranged with more likely to be added.

In 2017, more than 6,000 people took part in 98 free or discounted sessions at 20 venues.

The campaign to encourage more people into the sport has been growing since it was first run in 2014.

Sessions for complete novices include:

  • Ski and snowboard beginner and taster sessions throughout October at the Chill Factore in Manchester
  • 'Learn to Ski & Snowboard' sessions at SnowDome in Tamworth every day of the month
  • A free taster day at the North Staffordshire Ski Club on 13th October
  • Try Roller Skiing' days at Dorney Lake in Eton on 14th October.

There are open ski sessions at Chatham Ski and Snowboard Centre on 20th and 21st October and taster and open sessions at Kendal Ski Club throughout October.

Other 30 Days of Snowsport events include open days, races, competitions and freestyle events.

On 6th October, the GB Park & Pipe team will run a day for aspiring freestyle skiers and snowboarders at Kendal Ski Club, which is part of their Futures Project.
