The Snow Centre
Graham Bell, five-time Olympian and presenter of BBC's Ski Sunday said of National Schools Snowsports Week: "There is nothing better than standing on a ski slope, the adrenalin rushing through your body as you start your descent - whether that is in the Alps or on an artificial ski slope. I wish every child could have the chance to give snowsports a go and enjoy that feeling, which is why National Schools Snowsports Week is such a great idea. Not only will children from a range of backgrounds get to give skiing or snowboarding a go, at some slopes there are ski racing taster sessions, so we might even find our next Winter Olympic Champion!"
