Largest Snowsports Campaign Launches In UK

Largest Snowsports Campaign Launches In UK

Go Ski Go Board is a new programme aimed to get more people into skiing and snowboarding and it has been officially launched just five months ahead of the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.

The National Governing Body Snowsport England has partnered with Tirol Tourist Board to put together this fantastic programme at a range of indoor and artificial snow slopes within the UK. The programme will offer value for money ski and snowboarding courses for beginner, improver and recreational sessions. Participating slopes will offer courses at four levels; Try, Get, Go and Just.

Try will be a taster session with a qualified instructor aimed at getting new people into snowsports. Get will offer an excellent six hours of lessons to help build up skills in ski or snowboarding. Go will offer more advanced sessions that will help refine technique. Just is for people who simply want to ski or board with a group of people.

The Go Ski Go Board programme has launched its own website that will allow people to access information about the courses aswell as search for their nearest slope.

Snowsport England are also going to be running a series of Slide2Sochi roadshows at various indoor and outdoor slopes. These roadshows will include demonstrations, competitions, giveaways and taster sessions. The events will be aimed at bringing people to the slopes and to encourage engagement with snowsports. They will also be the place to find out more about Go Ski Go Board. Slide2Sochi dates have been released on www.slide2sochi.org.uk.

The launch of Go Ski Go Board was held at The Snowcenter in Hemel Hempstead and included a presentation from Tirol, Snowsport England and the organisers from Go Ski Go Board. Guests were then treated to an hour ski or board lesson, goody bags and some Apfel Struddle! Winter GB team members Ed Drake, Peter Whelan and Emily Sarsfield made a special appearance for photo opportunities and questions.

This programme is extremely exciting for wintersports in the UK and great that it has come just before the Winter Olympics.
