CSS has also captured the interest of British Olympic snowboarder Jenny Jones:


"So looking ahead to Round 3... as already mentioned, its the Glasgow Derby with Bearsden Freestyle up against Braehead (Snow Factor), can't wait to see that one. Team MK recently had their photoshoot event at the Snozone so expect to see some jumping over cars and hopefully a great setup for their match against Aberdeen Snowsports Centre! Jamie Nicholls and Katie Ormerod are appearing on the team sheets as well - so good to see the GB Park & Pipe snowboarders getting involved again with Championship Snowboarding"

More about CSS:


Championship Ski and Snowboard features six snowboard and six ski teams from slopes across the UK going head to head in a league, with teams submitting videos of tricks from four of their team members for each round. 


In every round, each team is matched against another team and their videos, including their best kicker, rail and EX (execution) trick for each rider, will be marked by a panel of world class judges, with one of the teams coming out on top or it being called a draw. Each team must include a "Young Gun" (a rider under the age of 15) and a female rider.


Championship Ski and Snowboard is made up by teams from Stoke Ski Centre (ski), The Snow Centre Hemel Hempstead (ski & snowboard), Aberdeen Snowsports Centre (ski & snowboard), Bearsden Ski and Snowboard Club (ski & snowboard). SnowDome Tamworth (ski & snowboard), Snozone Milton Keynes (ski & snowboard) and Snow Factor Braehead (snowboard).


The world class judging panel consists of GB Park and Pipe rider Katie Summerhayes, Josh Fawcett, Dave Young and Bobby Taylor on the ski side and Laura Berry, Kevin Mills, Colum Mytton and Andy Mills on the snowboard side. The overall scoring process is then overseen by the head judges who are GB Park and Pipe coaches Hamish McKnight, Pat Sharples, Jack Shackleton and Jamie Matthew.
