English Indoor Slopestyle Championships land at Chill Factore this June as Snowsport England look for rising ski and snowboard stars

The start of June sees the 2015 English Indoor Slopestyle Championships take place at Chill Factore, with many of the country’s rising freestyle ski and snowboard stars descending on the Manchester indoor snow centre.

Taking place on Saturday 6 June, the Championships which is organised by national governing body Snowsport England, is open to both skiers and snowboarders, with age categories ranging from U12 up to U20 and an ‘Open’ competition for older riders.

The contest, which will see the athletes hit kickers and rails in the expertly shaped snow park at Chill Factore, is open to a range of abilities, with the minimum requirement of being able to clear jumps and ride rails. As well as skiers and snowboarders new to competitions, the line-up is expected to include several of Snowsport England’s Freestyle Ski and Snowboard athletes, all looking to impress the judges.

Then the following day, Sunday 7 June, the slope action continues as Snowsport England search for the next set of Winter Olympic stars in a Talent ID day, also at Chill Factore.

The day is designed for people who are already competent skiers or snowboarders. On offer is a full day of riding for £35 under the watchful eye of experienced coaches. The day is a chance to learn about how to get started on the park & pipe pathway and a chance to learn what is needed to progress through the system.

Entry for the English Indoor Slopestyle Championships is now open online and costs £35 with a £10 bib deposit. For riders who are not registered with a Home Nation (Snowsport England/Snowsport Scotland/Snowsport Wales) or a member of an affiliated club can pay an extra £5 on the day to compete.
