Snowsport England’s ‘30 Days of Snowsport’ kicks off with over 70 free or discounted sessions available across the country

Snowsport England’s early season participation initiative, 30 Days of Snowsport (www.30daysofsnowsport.org.uk) which is sponsored by Visit Andorra has kicked off this week with over 70 ski and snowboard sessions, many of which are free or discounted, running at slopes up and down England.

Returning for the fourth year, 30 Days of Snowsport runs from 2nd – 31st October 2017, and is aimed at giving people a taste of skiing and snowboarding as well as providing opportunities for those who have already caught the bug to try something different – whether that is ski racing, freestyle or roller skiing.

The initiative is just the start of a series of Snowsport England campaigns aimed at getting more people into skiing and snowboarding and ensuring the Winter Olympics is an opportunity not to be missed for snowsports in the UK. Snowsport England will be announcing plans of a Winter Olympics initiative later this month, as well as confirming the continuation of National Schools Snowsport Week in 2018.
