Dates announced for 2017 English Slopestyle, Moguls and Ski/Snowboard Cross Championships. NEW

The English Slopestyle, Moguls and Ski/Snowboard Cross Championships are back for 2017 and will be bigger and better than ever as they move to a new venue: Snozone, Castleford.
Showcasing the best freestyle ski and snowboard talent in the country, the three English Championships will run in May, June, July 2017, and are key dates on the UK snowsports calendar.
The three Championships not only allow young athletes at the top of their sport to challenge for the English titles, they also provide an excellent foundation for skiers and snowboarders new to competition to gain event experience and progress their snowsports career.

The move to Snozone in Castleford will also allow for some exciting changes to the competition formats, which should make the events even more exciting for the young athletes.
