Do you want to be taught to ski by five times Olympian and qualified ski instructor Sir Steve Redgrave? Or would you prefer to see how fast you can ski against professional ski racers? If so, join the event on 5 October at Snozone in Milton Keynes organised as part of the Slide2Sochi Olympic themed road-show.
This event will make a great day out for all the family – even those who have never tried skiing or snowboarding before. As well as the free taster sessions, which are suitable for complete beginners, you can sit in an Olympic Bobsleigh with members of the GB Bobsleigh team. The more competitive can test their speed against some of the UK’s up and coming top skiers who train at Snozone on a weekly basis: Jess Anderson and Megan Riley will be setting the times on the day. And, to keep everyone in the mountain mood, there will be an après-ski area featuring the High Society Band playing Tirolean music.
The event starts at 11am on Saturday 5 October. Admission is on a first come, first served basis and taster sessions can be pre-booked by calling 0871 222 5673. The Snozone Slide2Sochi event is being run by governing body Snowsport England in conjunction with Crystal Ski Holidays and the Tirol Tourist Board.
