Snowsport GB hunts the slopes for talent.

In an effort to identify future wintersports champions at an early age Snowsport GB has launched a new programme called “The Talent Trail”.

It aims to work with British Ski Schools, Clubs and bodies across the mountains to spot and develop future champions.

If the child has what it takes they’ll be advised on how to get involved with competing and which path to take to fulfil their potential.

“There must be many, many talented kids out on the slopes and this programme aims to find them, nurture them and turn them into medal winners,” says Duncan Freshwater, the Performance Director of Snowsport GB.

The scheme has the backing of many current racers, including Britain’s top femail racer, Chemmy Alcott who came 10th in the first race of the season at Sölden in Austria.

So if you know of any child who may have what it takes then you can get further information from here.

If you are just after your child becoming a better skier or snowboarder then take a look at our Guide to British Ski schools around the mountains.
