It's My Sport, My Dry Slope - Tyler Williams

August 3, 2017

Another one of our It's My Sport, My Dry Slope stories, in case you don't know this is what it's all about:

We are aware that grassroots snow sports in the UK invariably revolves around artificial snow or dry slopes, but that doesn't just have to be the beginning, it can be a life-long love affair! 

We're keen to feature people making use of their local dry slope on a regular basis. We want to hear from a diverse background of users from across all disciplines (Ski, Board, Nordic, Disability) young and old. It would be great to have stories from recreational participants, instructors or coaches, competitors and people who work in the sport.
