70 free or discounted taster & recreational sessions running nationwide
Returning for its third year, 30 Days of Snowsport - part of Snowsport England's GO SKI GO BOARD campaign - returns to slopes up and down England from Saturday 24th September until Sunday 23rd October 2016. The initiative aims to give people new to skiing and snowboarding a taste of what they are missing, and provides an opportunity for everyone to hit the slopes and get excited about the upcoming winter season.
Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports are proud to be supporting 30 Days of Snowsport that celebrates the start of the winter season with 25 dedicated events at 19 slopes and facilities, with at least 70 free or discounted taster and recreational sessions running throughout the campaign.
During the campaign, free taster sessions are happening at Sunderland Sports Complex (25th September & 10th-16th October), Pendle Ski Club (4th October), Ski Kidsgrove (8th October) and also in the build up at Kendal Snowsports Club (18th September).
As well as taster sessions, the 25 dedicated events compromise of open days, races, competitions and freestyle events. The sessions and fun, family-friendly activities are open to all ages, with many of them suitable for beginners and those looking to take up a new sport. For people who already ski or snowboard, there will be a chance to get the ski legs back or have a go at something different – whether that be freestyle, ski racing, rollerskiing or another discipline.
30 Days of Snowsport has become an important part of the UK slopes calendar, with the autumn being a key time to give people the chance to try skiing and snowboarding.
30 Days of Snowsport will also coincide with Sportsaid Week from 26th September until 2nd October , which is aimed at raising money and awareness about the charity that supports rising stars of the sport. At Stoke Ski Centre, there is dedicated Sports aid charity event in the form of the Freestyle Jam & Open Day on 22nd October.
Justin Taylor Tipton, GO SKI GO BOARD ambassador and organiser of the Charity JAM at Stoke Ski Centre said: "The Charity JAM for Sportsaid at Stoke Ski Centre is part of 30 Days of Snowsport and will help start winter with a bang. We want the next generation of snowsport lovers to find out all about freestyle by coming down to watch. Who knows next year it could be them!"
