Go Ski Go Board Launches in Wales!

December 11, 2015

In 2012 the London Olympics prompted Snowsport England to launch Go Ski Go Board, the participation initiative that makes it easier than ever to find your local slope and try out snow sports for the very first time and from today that means in Wales too!

Go Ski Go Board is a great website, where you can type in your postcode and your nearest slope will pop-up with a list of all the slope's upcoming offers and courses. Up until now this resource has only been available to people in England but not any more! Us Celtic wonderments in Wales and Scotland are getting in on the game (sports pun)!

So from now on, every centre in Wales will be listed on the GSGB site, any special offers, lessons or courses they have going on will be listed under their centre so it's never been easier to get your ski or board on, whether you want to 'Try', 'Get', 'Go' or 'Just' ski or snowboard (technical GSGB terms for first time, beginner, improver and recreational).

It's something that's got the snow centre managers of Wales pretty excited with Chris from Llangrannog Centre stating: "GSGB is a brilliant opportunity for people of all ages across the country to try skiing and snowboarding on home soil." Peter Bishop from the fabulous Pontypool Slope enthused that: "GoSkiGoBoard is a fantastic site for anyone interested in skiing or snowboarding from beginners to experts. You can see what's on offer at your local slope and most other slopes around the country all in one place."

It's not just centres that can register on the site, clubs can too, so if you're part of a race club, local club or university team then upload all your club details onto the site so that wherever you are in Wales, local skiers and snowboarders will be able to find you. 

The big message of the 2012 Olympics was it's legacy and while there has been lots of debate about whether or not this has been successful it's definitely left a lasting legacy on British snow sports with the Go Ski Go Board initiative. Tim Fawke, CEO of Snowsport England, the governing body who came up with the initiative says: "Go Ski Go Board has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 2013 and it is fantastic news that Snowsport Wales have launched the initiative to the Welsh public, we’re also looking forward to Snowsport Scotland joining the initiative in early 2016! Working together, we can help publicise how accessible skiing and snowboarding is and get more people along to their local centre or resort to give it a go in the UK."
