About GO SKI GO BOARD
GO SKI GO BOARD is a nationwide sports participation campaign which helps you find your nearest slope or club in the UK. We bring together a network of indoor and artificial snow slopes and community sport clubs across the UK who offer value for money taster, beginner, improver and recreational skiing and snowboarding lessons and sessions. These are split across 4 simple levels in the pathway for all snowsport centres: TRY, GET, GO and JUST.
Whether you're an absolute beginner learning to ski or learning to snowboard for the first time, want to improve ready for an upcoming holiday to the mountains, or an experienced snowsport enthusiast just wanting to re-live your time on the ski slopes, one of the best ways to get involved in snowsports in the UK is through GO SKI GO BOARD.
Go Race Go Freestyle
For those of you that have caught the snowsports bug or were inspired by Team GB at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, GO RACE GO FREESTYLE could be for you. Added to the campaign in September 2014, you can continue your snowsports journey through introductory ski or snowboard race and freestyle sessions with dedicated coaches across the UK.
How Do I Get Involved?
Whether you are a part of a group or an individual there are opportunities for you to get involved. Depending on your past experience you can start your GO SKI GO BOARD journey at any point. Have a look at the different disciplines below to see the pathways available and workout where you should be starting.

Who's behind GO SKI GO BOARD?
GO SKI GO BOARD was launched as a grassroots mass participation programme in October 2013 ahead of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Created and delivered by the National Governing Body, Snowsport England (SSE) the programme is funded through Sport England's investment into SSE's Whole Sport Plan. The first 2 years of the programme have seen over 55,000 young people (14 - 25) attend GO SKI GO BOARD courses at ski centres across England, as well as the addition of GO RACE GO FREESTYLE in September 2014.
At the end of 2015, neighbouring governing bodies, Snowsport Wales and Snowsport Scotland will be delivering GO SKI GO BOARD over the borders, making it the first nationwide mass participation programme the UK has seen, and the programme will look to continue its flourishing partnership with Visit Tirol, the Austrian Region who are our official destination of choice following attending a course in the UK.
