Learnt to ski or pick up new skills at slopes across England during October

For the next month, slopes across England are offering free and discounted skiing and snowboarding in the run up to the ski-season.

The scheme called 30 Days of Snowsport is run by Snowsport England in conjunction with Visit Andorra to encourage people to try skiing and snowboarding or, if they are already a fan, to try something new, such as ski racing or freestyle. It will also help to build excitement and anticipation ahead of the Winter Olympics, which take place in South Korea next February.

There are more than 70 free or discounted sessions available across the country for 30 Days of Snowsport, which runs throughout October — with highlights including free taster sessions with Andorra instructors at SnowDome in Tamworth on over the weekend of 21-22 October.
