National Schools Snowsport Week Underway

    Published on April 29th, 2016 | by Jordan Kierans


    The inaugural ‘National Schools Snowsport Week, sponsored by Visit Andorra, is underway with activities on offer for school children at 22 slopes across England. From Sunderland to Torquay, hundreds of pupils are expected to benefit from affordable sessions and activities over the eight-day initiative which runs until this Friday, 29 April,

    To celebrate the start of the week, which is organised by Snowsport England, GB Snowboarder Aimee Fuller and TV performer Stacey Solomon who competed in The Jump joined pupils from Larmenier and Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School at The Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead, with Aimee showing them all how it is done!

    Starting skiing or snowboarding when you are young is a brilliant idea – it is so much fun and really social,” said Aimee, “I have met some of my best friends and had the opportunity to travel the world competing. It also is a great way to stay fit and strong. I am sure National Schools Snowsport Week will give more schools the chance to give it a go.” 

    National Schools Snowsport Week is primarily aimed at encouraging more schools to introduce their pupils to snowsports. As well as beginner taster sessions, several slopes will be offering race and freestyle sessions, plus events for school children will also be running during the week.
