New campaign GOSKIGOBOARD aims to bring new audience to snowsports

Move Mountains Travel is supporting the largest ever national snowsports participation campaign, GO SKI GO BOARD.
It was launched this week with the aim of bringing more people into snowsports in the lead up to the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.The new campaign is being run by Snowsport England, and brings together the UK’s snow slopes to offer value for money taster, beginner, improver and recreational sessions.

Four Levels available

TRY SKI or BOARD is aimed at getting new people into snowsports through a taster session with a
qualified instructor.

For beginners who know they have caught the bug, GET SKI or BOARD offers six hours of instruction to help build a solid foundation of fundamental skills.

For those who can already ski or board, GO SKI or BOARD offers development sessions with instructors to help refine technique.

For people who simply want to ski or board with a group of people, there is the recreational JUST SKI or BOARD sessions.

Typically the costs of GO SKI GO BOARD sessions include instruction, slope time, equipment and clothing. Their website has info about all the courses on offer.  There is also a Facebook page.

Slide to Sochi
To complement GO SKI GO BOARD, Snowsport England are running a series of Slide2Sochi roadshows at indoor snow centres and outdoor slopes across the country.

Slide2Sochi roadshows will involve demonstrations, fun competitions on and off the slope, interactive games, giveaways, stalls and refreshments and some slopes will run taster sessions.

All the Slide2Sochi dates and more information can be found on www.slide2sochi.org.uk
