The British Snow Tour has announced the dates for this season with 14 prestigious British Championship events. The tour kicks off in September at the Norfolk Snowsports Centre with the series climax, The Brits, taking place in the Swiss resort of Laax in the end of March.
The British Snow Tour will be taking in many of the UK's snowsports hotspots, including Castleford, Glasgow and Milton Keynes, and with the help of two new sponsors and a hefty combined prize fund of £20,000, this year is set to be a corker.
"We're stoked that a host of the industry's biggest brands continue to appreciate the impact of the British Snow Tour, as protection heavyweight Giro and European boardwear specialist, Protest, join in the action to complement our long-serving friendships with Trespass, SNO!zone, Snow + Rock and Cushe Footwear... Here's to the continued invasion of new participants and the developments of UK rippers... bring it on!" - Spencer Claridge, Director of Soulsports and the British Snow Tour.
