SchoolAgeSnowsportParticipationWales2018.pngRecent surveys in Wales carried out by Welsh Government and Sport Wales have identified a huge demand for snowsport participation in Wales with headline figures showing that 17% of school children participating in snowsports and another 12% who would like to participate.

These are great statistics that we would like to capitalise upon and help more children to access the sport.

As part of our development initiative we have partnered with Select Schools Skiing to be able to give you some expert advice and guidance concerning schools skiing holidays. Follow the link to Select Schools Skiing to see their offers for wintersport schools trips.

Select Schools Skiing have also partnered with Snowsport Cymru Wales to help develop schools snowsport opportunities in Wales. We will be launching,

  • targeted sessions aiming to get more children into snowsports
  • training for school trip leaders
  • a programme of schools skiing events

In the meantime, if you want to give skiing or snowboarding a go, contact your local ski centre and get involved.

Robin Kellen, Chief Executive Snowsport Cymru Wales said, “We are really excited to establish this partnership with Select Schools Skiing. Our events activity has grown year on year recently and linked to some fantastic statistics provided by Sport Wales & Welsh Government demonstrating significant latent demand for snowsports amongst school children in Wales, this partnership can help pull even more young enthusiasts into the sport.”
Martyn Bowden, Managing Director of Select Schools Skiing said, "Select School Skiing is pleased to announce our association with Snowsports Cymru Wales from February 2020. The partnership's objective is to develop and support the next generation of skiers, giving them their first opportunity to try this great sport. My father, John Bowden, the late founder of Select, was also born in Wales. His career spanned over 50 years in school skiing, striving to create a platform where children could share such experiences. The select family will continue to honour his legacy in working with Robin and his team to develop new initiatives.”
