10th October 2007 – The British Snowboard & Freeski Tour puts its foot down and heads to Milton Keynes SNO!zone on Saturday 13th October for some high-speed action during the Trespass British Indoor Snowboard/Skiercross Championships and slopestyle Jam. Prior to the weekend’s competition, the British Snow Tour Schools Team will be heading into two Milton Keynes schools on the 11th & 12th October to inspire over 1,000 school pupils and give away 100 FREE lessons. Method Snow School will be on hand on Friday evening to offer some freestyle coaching tips, plus FREE product testing from Salomon, Ride, K2 and Faction Ski’s will be up for grabs.
Over 100 of the UK’s top snowboarders and freeskiers will don helmets and sharpen their edges for the Trespass Snowboard and Skiercross Championships this weekend. Competitors will race in heats of four down a challenging course that includes bumps, jumps and tight banked turns, pushing reactions and control to the max. Riders will also be able to flex their freestyle boards and skis during the Slopestyle Jam, with local snowboarders Steve Revill, Chris Chatt and freeskier Amber Connors leading the way. Competition is open to all abilities and all riders must pre register online at the British Snow Tour website to secure their spot.
