About GO SKI GO BOARD
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.
The campaign simply aims to introduce people into or back into snowsports by helping you find the latest offers at your nearest slope or club in the UK. "But skiing or snowboarding is expensive!" we hear you say...you'll be surprised - the cost is lower than you might think!
We bring together the network of artificial & indoor ski slopes and community sport clubs who offer value for money taster and beginner lessons that are all-inclusive of equipment hire, clothing, instruction and lift pass. Once you've caught the bug, make that next step with development sessions or introductions to racing, freestyle and coaching.

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.
