Chill Factore to host FIS European Indoor Moguls Championships
The competition will feature top British and International moguls skiers and will consist of four competitions featuring single and dual moguls using the Olympic format.
It is expected that the FIS event will also attract good crowds to the indoor snow centre and will hopefully encourage the next generation of athletes from within non-alpine nations, like the UK.
Morwenna Angove, CEO at Chill Factore said of the world first: “We are absolutely delighted to host the European Indoor Moguls Championships. It’s fabulous to be the first to hold such a prestigious event and shows the quality of the snow and facilities here. This follows the success of many of our athletes at this year’s Winter Olympics when the indoor snow domes in this country were heralded a successful breeding ground for nurturing and training our young talent, the Fridge Kids.”
The FIS event will also mark the introduction of Snowsport England’s "30 Days of Snowsport" campaign, which will be a calendar of 30 days involving participation events at slopes and clubs with GO SKI GO BOARD taster sessions, online competitions and promotions. All the activity is aimed at getting new people into snowsports and existing skiers and snowboarders excited about snowsports following the success of British skiers and snowboarders at Sochi 2014.
